    First Question i would bounce back is; are you working in a group? / will need to justify your outcome? why i ask this question is... if you are proposing a solution to a group of like minded individuals, as a designer you often need to justify your final concept? and if that is the case then i strongly suggest following things like six sigma design principles, with process like the QFD house, only because people high up love Buzz Word Bingo!!! Idea being behind the QFD house is that it chooses the design based on merit rather then a design engineers gut feeling. If you work purely independently and no one will ever need to know the theory in how you came to your final design. (This is how I work (probably completely wrong, but so...) start from the beginning and make it as basic as possible..... Bullet point the PDS. Don't go into any detail, you know all the details in your head. from there i just sketch an idea, go down though the list, does it tick them all...

    Hello everyone, I'm designing a telescoping mechanism with 3 cylindrical tubes, and a square driveshaft running through the middle. See the attached pic. It's about 6 feet long fully extended, and I have custom plastic adapters holding and securing the tubes, with holes in the tubes for adjusting length. The driveshaft begins with a 7.7 mm square shaft, which again telescopes into two square tubes. I have two molded bearings at the ends of the cylindrical tubes, but I also need bearings in between. I thought of incorporating them with the plastic adapters, but I haven't found a proper way to secure them. The other issue is, the square driveshaft is too small for me to design an adapter, and I need some feature so when you expand the tubes, the smaller shaft will lock on and drag the larger tube with it, or it will just get pulled out of the tube and get separated. I'll appreciate any suggestions to solve this.

    Hi guys, I need your help and suggestion on a machine I am designing. The attached drawing shows the part of a machine I am designing. In this the motor is rotating at a constant speed of 1000rpm and is connected to a rack which drives a pinion. This pinion is fixed on a shaft which rotates at 2000rpm and it is supported with ball bearings. The linear reciprocating movement of the rack makes the pinion to change its direction of rotation continuously. The moment of inertia of the shaft is 0.040Kg-cm2. My doubt is is this possible. Will there be any problem caused due to continuous change of rotation direction. Will there be power loss??

    What is the normal force that would be applied? Do you think a paint would hold up to continuous friction? Probably not unless the force is very very small.

    Hi guys, I would like to design a waterproof (or at least splash proof) cylinder enclosure. The enclosure should be easily removed when needed. Now I already have enclosure (a piece of circular acrylic) and a cylinder aluminum. Both have same diameter. My questions are: 1. How to make it waterproof/splash proof? 2. Any suitable removable lock design I can use to attached the two pieces? or commercially available is acceptable. Please give advised. Thank you.

    Hey Guys! I am currently taking a Technical Communications class from Salt Lake Community College, and one of my projects involves interviewing a professional in my chosen career field (my chosen career field being Mechanical Engineering) to learn more about the organizational culture of the company they work for, which genres of writing are most commonly used, and maybe an example or two of some Engineering reports that I could use for reference. I would really appreciate any help you are willing to offer, so if you are interested in lending a hand and would be generous enough to allow me to interview you (email, phone, or webcam) I would greatly appreciate it. PM me and I will provide my email address and/or phone number so you can contact me whichever way is easiest. Thanks for taking the time to read this!
