  • My name is Joseph, I am a sophomore attending UAH with the aim of earning a bachelor's degree in mechanical engineering. I completed this project for my MAE211 CAD class. All parts and assemblies were made in Solid Edge using the ordered environment. My assembly is based closely on diagrams I found of the Weatherford Maximizer II unit, I used available dimensions for their 912-365-168 model. There are 13 subassemblies used for the bearings, two families of parts used for the nuts and bolts, 160 unique parts, all adding up to a total of 1125 parts in my assembly. There is one motor driving the entire assembly, transmitting the power accurately through the gears and arms across 7 axes of rotation to move over 400 parts. Left down.jpgLeft rear viewThe nuts and bolts were placed using patterns and mirrors when possible. Sometimes Solid Edge discern which holes to pattern the parts into, which made the process more time consuming than I had anticipated.Left up.jpgThe pump positioned partway through the upstrokeThe motor section of the assembly was also a bit more difficult to make correctly as the diagrams lacked large amounts of information on that area. I decided to use an electric motor, as I found I did not have time to create an accurate combustion engine. This portion was based off of images and videos I found online, and is less accurate than the rest of the model. The site isn't letting me upload more images in this post, so I will add more information and details in a second one.

  • I am a student at the University of Alabama in Huntsville. I am studying aerospace engineering. I made this X-wing as one of the projects in my CAD class. I had a great time designing it. I took a simple approach to building it. I started by creating a base part and then adding parts from there. I added the R2 drone after I completed the top section of the X-wing. key234.11.jpg

  • Hello, my name is Gareth Montgomery and I have designed a fully functional V8 engine. This model exhibits the type of engine that would be used in a high performance road car before direct injection was introduced. The camshafts are belt driven through the crankshaft like a real life engine, which in turn rockers the valves open and closed in certain time delays. In my design I have included an intake manifold and exhaust manifold, both with a smooth constant form to produce good airflow properties. All components of this engine were designed using Solid Edge through a variety of commands such as 3D features, variables tables, Xpress Route and surface modelling. Keyshot was then used to experiment with different lighting, environments and materials to render high quality images of the final product.

     

    This engine design has been produced for my CAD module this semester as I am a final year student at Ulster University, Northern Ireland. I decided to design an engine for this module because I am a keen car enthusiast who is interested in motor technologies and I would love to get into a career involving automotive design.Engine ISO 5.jpgEngine ISO 1.jpgEngine ISO 2.jpgEngine ISO 4.jpgEngine ISO 4.jpg

    comp12.jpgElectric ChainsawMy name is Mark Ballantine and I am a Mechanical Engineering Student, currently in my final year of my degree. I attend Ulster University, Northern Ireland and have designed an electric chainsaw as part of a Computer Aided Engineering Module. The design was created entirely with the use of Solid Edge and used a wide range of modelling techniques. As part of this class I have carried out Motion Simulation on the freely moving parts of this assembly in order to confirm the viability of the design. Engineering reference was used to create the appropriate gear and chain combination. I have also used Finite Element Analysis to predict the performance of a product under the forces it will likely experience in the 'real world'. This has allowed me to make improvements and optimize the design where points of weakness occurred. KeyShot was used to produce the high quality rendered image. This has been an enjoyable project and has enabled me to further develop my CAD skills, of which I have a personal interest in.

This bike has an extremely stiff yet aerodynamic structure to minimise power loss and maximise speed. Every component was created using Solid Edge and a wide variety of modelling techniques were incorporated including 3D sketching, surface modelling and assembly modelling. I also availed of the Engineering Reference Application to develop suitable gears for the bike. I used Keyshot render to devise a high quality final image.

  • Hello, my name is Rhys Quinn.

    I am currently a final year engineering student at Ulster University, Northern Ireland. In my CAE module (MEC502), I decided to redesign a horizontal waste baler. The baler was a complex design that consists of 10 individual sub assembly’s with over 500 parts in the entire assembly. In order to complete this product, a wide range of 3D modelling methods within the Solid Edge package were utilised. Keyshot was used to produce high resolution image of the finished machine. FEA analysis is another area that was crucial in the design. Using Solid Edge Simulation allowed me to understand what forces the door could withstand when a compaction force of 50tons was being applied. ISO 3 Waste Baler.5.jpg

  • Hello, my name is Jacob Price and I am studying to become a mechanical engineer at the University of Alabama in Huntsville. This is my project for my CAD class I had this semester. We were assigned two major projects this year and the second one was of our own choice. I chose to model the rear axle of a remote controlled rock crawler that I own and have competed with. MOA stands for motor-on-axle which as you can see in the render there is an electric motor mounted to the axle. I was able to completely disassemble the axle and measure every part with a set of calipers, which was extremely helpful in keeping interferences at bay. This project has taught me a lot about the different functions and features of Solid Edge and Keyshot. I hope you enjoy my render as much as I do.

    I am currently a mechanical engineering student at the University of Alabama in Huntsville. For my final project in my MAE 211 class (Intro to Computational Tools) I recreated a 1/48 scale model of a Panzer III tank. I chose a tank for my project beacuse I love history, espicially the history of military vechicles and equipment. I also hope to work for a defense contractor in Huntsville, possibly Redstone Arsenal. One of the most frustrating and fuflling parts to design were the treads of the tank. I managed to reach a state were the treads move in a realistic path, and without interfering with the wheels. I included two renders created in Keyshot, as well as a youtube video of my treads in motion.Panzer_III.7.jpgPanzer_III.13.jpg

  • For our Computer Assisted Modelling class in Instituto Politécnico de Leiria me, Tiago Ferreira, and my friend, João Faria, both second year mechanical engineering students, decided to try and model a world war 2 tank destroyer, the Sd.Kfz. 186 Pänzerjäger Tiger Henschel chassis variant, based on his 1/72 model.For the modelling we used Solid Edge. At first we were to only model it's exterior, however, we thought that it would be too simple so we then decided to try and model the interior for our tank, we ended up basing our interior on the Tiger VI, tweaking it as we saw fit so everything would fit nicely and to remain as close to a real tank as possible.

    First, we modelled the interior dealing with the tank's motion, as seen in motion_1 and motion_2.

    After modelling everything responsible for the tank's motion and giving the correct relationships so it could move during the assembly we modelled the rest of the interior, including the referigerating system, firing mechanism and ammo racks, as seen in interior_1 and interior_2.

    Finally, after all the interior was done we began assembling everything, dealing with the exterior plates as we assembled everything due to the fact that these exterior parts would be the parts that would suffer the most adjustments, having to do many cuts so everything would fit nicely.

    In the end, we ended up using a total of 1292 parts, 282 unique parts and making everything as functional as possible, such as doors, hatches, firing mechanism, referigerator fans and tank motion, taking us around 4 months to complete our project, picking the name Charon, the ferrymen of the dead, for our tank, inspired by Grave Digger's song: Charon, Fährmann des Todes.

  • This is an oboe, which is a double reeded musical instrument. It was modeled primarily using the Part-in-Place function in SolidEdge ST9. Each rod of keys was based on parrellel planes and interpart connections. Dimensions were based on my actual Fox Rendard 440 oboe. I am a second year student at the University of Alabama in Huntsville studying aerospace engineering with a minor in music.

  • My name is Arpad Kinka. I'm finalizing my studies in mechanical designing at Beszédes József MMIK secondary school in Kanjiza, Serbia. For my final work, I choosed an old sewing machine to create the CAD model of it.

     

    After sucesfully diassembled the dusty and rusty machine, I measured all parts of it with a caliper.

    I created some sketches with the actual size of the parts, and start to bring them to life again with Solid Edge.

    The main idea was a ''digital restauration'' . After finished the interior parts in Mulibody environment I've started to animate the assembled model. That was the hardest part of the work, because there are a lot of excentrical movements in one revolution. Finally, I managed to calibrate all parts to move in Solid Edge, as in the real life. You can watch it in the video, I attached below. 121 unique parts were used in the project for a total of 198 parts.

    The transmission is of the synchro-less, constant mesh type. Dog clutches are used to engage each gear. I included the center differential within the transmission. All of the gears' teeth were designed with true involute curve geometry using the table driven curve command. For the spur gears, a helix was used to sweep the involute tooth profile along the gear axis. A loft was used to create the tapered tooth of the bevel gears. 63 unique parts were used in the model for a grand total of 337 parts.

  • My name is Matthew Holt, and here is my project for the MAE 211 Intro to Computational Tools course taught at the University of Alabama in Huntsville.

     

    A radial engine was chosen as the subject of my project because of their historical significance, along with my interest of how they operate. I modeled my project after many different designs, with the primary design being that of the Pratt & Whitney R-1340 Wasp engine. Although I would have ideally made an exact replica of that specific engine, I ended up attributing the majority of the components to guess-work, or to similar components seen on other engines. Altogether, this project had 219 total parts, 33 unique parts, and 98 moving parts with the motor feature in Solid Edge.

     

    I am happy to have had the opportunity to learn about Solid Edge and Keyshot, and experience the magnitude of potential that these programs have to offer.

  • For our Computed Aided Design class’s final project, me and my colleague Tiago Pereira, both enrolled in the second year of Mechanical Engineering in Instituto Politécnico de Leiria, decided to design the GS Storm CL-1 RTR RC Car based on a physical model. We used Solid Edge as the CAD program for this project.

    We started by measuring the size of all the RC Car’s components, to get an accurate representation of the cars components, apart from the engine as it would require disassembling so we based it on a Parasolid 3D model from GrabCAD and gave them a few tweaks to fit nicely with the rest of the components.

    This project was divided into three major assemblies, the rear, the front and the central assembly, this last one includes the chassis. The engine (motion_3), the transmission (motion_7), the deposit and the receiver, each one of them were designed and assembled separately and finally all combined together.

    In the end, we had a total of 708 parts, 277 unique parts and seven main assemblies, including the final functional one, which took us a little over three months to complete.

    The engine consists of thirty-five unique parts that once assembled into the complete engine totals two hundred and ninety-three parts. The engine also animates the motion of the pistons, valves, connecting rods, and cam shaft. In total the animation moves ninety-seven parts with one driven motor placed on the crankshaft.

    I completed this project as part of The University of Alabama in Huntsville's MAE 211, Intro to Computational Tools class.

    I enjoyed working on this project since I had the opportunity to learn more about the inner-workings of the Clerget engine as well as learn to utilize the Solid Edge assembly environment.
