    We are getting ready to bring our first product to market. We are located in the Southeast USA. It is a wearable device that needs to be over-molded for the purposes of water resistance. We are open to discussion on whether we use a two part urethane siicone or something like TechnoMelt. We are having a horrible time finding a company that is repsonsive or that will follow through. We are looking for recommendations on solid companies that have a great track record of under-promising and over-delivering. Is there ANYBODY out there whe has had exceptioanl experiences ? Thank you.

    The ratio is: Number of ring gear teeth / Number of sun gear teeth +1 The number of planet gear teeth = (Number of ring gear teeth - Number of sun gear teeth)/2 I hope this helps.

    There is this large cold storage facility which has floor heaving problem due to freeze and ice formation in the moisture in the soil below freezer. The floor consists of one layer of concrete, one layer of insulation, and earth. there is glycol heating system below the insulation but for some reason it is too deep. it warms up about one foot. above that is a layer where freeze and thaw happens. any thought about it? what do you think is the best solution and why? taking the concrete and insulation out and putting a vapor barrier layer is too expensive. electric probes also consume a lot of energy.

    I have this cold storage with 6" insulation under a layer of concrete floor. Below that is the dirt that needs to be heated. The customer doesn't like glycol or probes drilled in at equal distances. Another idea is conduit blowing air . Any other idea?

    Hi I need to apply Anti Reflection coating on front LCD protective glass that have a requirement for Blowing Sand per MIL-STD-810F Method 510.4 Proc. II. I guess any helicopter's glass or FLIR have this kind of coating. Does anyone have information about it? I'm using AR coating a lot but it doesn't comply this requirement.

    Hi, I have to design a module like the one in the photo below : So, the module have two different finishes for the plastic. One part with mate black plastic and one part with glossy black plastic. I would like to know if I can make one single part for the housing and the 2 types of finishes will be realize during or after the molding process or if I have to make 2 different parts for each finishes and so find a way for assembling the 2 parts ? Thanks in advance !

    To prevent the drill bit from doing any appreciable damage to the thread, you might also want to consider 'jobbing' bits - these have a limited flute length, and are designed to be more rigid than multi purpose bits. Of course, this depends on your material thickness and also the flexibility you have in your jig design as to whether you can stand it off sufficiently prior to the bit contacting the material.

    Anyone use edrawings on iPad or a good alternative? Have tried eDrawings on an iPad 2 at work and an iPad Air at home and both unsuccessfully. iPad 2 is just outdated me thinks as it runs low on memory on large assemblies, actually not that large, even something as small as 10MB. eDrawings on iPad Air ain't much better. Have tried using 3D PDF RReader but 3D PDF files are huge. A 27MB solidworks assembly file goes to 170MB. Also tried AutoDesk360 but one needs to upload to their site online and then download to ipad so IP is sketchy.

    I have used lots of products to do design work. I know lots of people seem to like t-splines and say they use it for production surfaces. Does anyone have any experience using it for production surfaces? Someone feel there is a better tool and shy? I would be interested in the pros/cons or any experiences. Before I spend lots of time learning a new tool - I would love to get people's opinion first.

    Check out clamp on drill guides from wolfcraft or other wood working tool companies. They are designed to drill dowel pin holes at a true 90 deg to the work surface.

    Use a "real" drill bushing, from somebody like Carr-Lane, or make one from solid steel stock. Not only are hardware store coupling nuts fairly soft, but threaded holes don't tend to be particularly accurate.

    Hello Everyboody. I use ANSYS APDL with code for my shaft with two coating layers(interlayer and coating layer). I already analysis stress of shaft with Ansys. the result is ok and i exported to .RST file. But , when i input my shaft to Ncode, I can't find the interlayer and coating layers.I think this shaft have 3 part(subtrate, interlayer, coating layer) !substrate materials Young's modulus (Mpa): 2.1e5 Poisson's ratios:0.3 Density(ton/mm3):8.03e-9 ! interlayer material Young's modulus (Mpa): 3,2e5

    SolidWorks is now undergoing 'Package-Creep'. Visualize? EXTRA MBD? EXTRA No doubt it will continue as Dassault's EU approach of giving less for more cash will continue. Whether this will translate into more sales is a moot point - one of the problems Autodesk got into was the additional modules cost more than the base package so nobody updated. Eventually you'll get so far behind, the licence will cost a fortune to update, so end-users consider keeping the old system for legacy, and changing the CAD/CAM system for one that will do the job.

    Hello Dear, I am working on a problem for which I am not getting enough ideas to solve the problem in the best way as I am not from mechanical background. Imagine, I have a link 'A', and one end of the link 'a1' is pivoted to z-axis so that this link can revolve around z-axis. There is another link 'B', parallel to z-axis (i.e. perpendicular to link 'A' ), and one end of this link 'b1' is connected to 'a2' (the other end of link 'A') using some kind of joint so that link 'B' can rotate around virtual axis perpendicular to link 'A' passing through 'a2'. Please refer the attached flash video (link 'A' is of color Blue and link 'B' is of color Red). You can also see in this video that I have further restricted the rotation of link 'B' but that is not very relevant. My problem is, what kind of joint should I make between link 'A' and link 'B' so that link 'B' can be detatched easily just by applying manual force by hand, like...
