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.

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.

Hi my name is Thomas,
The image is of a nine-cylinder Clerget radial engine that I modeled using Solid Edge. The engine design was based on plans for a Clerget engine, the engine used in World War I era airplanes like the Sopwith Camel.
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.

Hello! My name is Maria Yureva. I'm a 4th year student of Belgorod State Technological University named after V.G. Shukhov (Computer Technologies in Mechanical Engineering of Building Material Industry).
I have always wondered why in the building materials industry is relatively little space is given to machine for lifting? Flipped through magazines CAD, look at the huge posters in the design lab - all entirely deeply special equipment used only in the building materials industry. But there is also a machine for lifting, without which virtually every enterprise absolutely any industry can not do! Such machines and relates elevator LGNS-260, which lifts the material in the vertical direction by means of deep bucket. And I began my acquaintance with the elevator that's how.
As a student-designer I needed to find machine drawings, which I will design. And began to search the Internet, trips to factories, but significant results to no avail: in the best case, you can find the drawings only a general form without detailing. Then I went to an old and good friend in another city who have a lot of other friends, without a drawing for the soul, and with ardent hope in your heart. And a miracle happened! The drawings came to me in full, and even in electronic form. Happy and satisfied, I went home.
First, the elevator I was even more frightened by their size, and it was very interesting - if I have time to build and collect all in such a short time? However, as the saying goes, "the eyes to fear, but the hands are doing." Having examined the drawings and specifications, I walked into the Teamcenter, create a product structure established in Annex "Structure Manager" and opened NX.
Teamcenter - a suite of scalable software solutions to support the life cycle of products that are based on an open PLM platform. Teamcenter enables you to communicate to all participants create a product intelligently managing, maintaining, distributing and enhancing intellectual property companies. In addition to work on the elevator it was used not just Teamcenter, and the SSP - a prototype of the standard solutions. This is a prepared set of settings and methods, providing the implementation of the most popular problems that can be solved in Teamcenter and NX systems. Comfortable and functional open the system settings did work on the elevator fast and productive, so that the diploma, with all its immense amount of detail, was ready on time.
At all stages of product development teachers supervised the creation of the machine. top-level nodes selectively passed through the approval process. And now finally designed the elevator emblazoned on a realistic image of my diploma.

Hello my name is Jeremy Kitzinger, and I am a 2nd year Student in Design Engineering.
For this project, I needed to do a full internal layout, and a 3D model of a Superyacht. The 3D model have been entirely design using NX.
As part of my studies, I have used NX a lot recently for Engineering Drawing, CNC manufacturing and dynamic analysis.
For this recent project, I have discover some very powerful and precise surface modelling tools that allowed me to model complex shapes.
It is amazing how many different applications you can use NX for, and has a student, it makes life much easier and work more effective.
I have selected one image, which you can see below, as well as the profile to show you the global shape.
This project was very challenging as it’s required a lot of feature and details. I have done this project in one and a half month (not only the 3D model have been done during this period but the layout as well).
Thanks you very much for your attention.

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.

My name is Terell Dunn. I'm majoring in mechanical engineering at the University of Alabama in Huntsville. I modelled a sequentially shifted, five speed manual transmission of my own design.
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.

In the lexicon of motor-fans it appeared the word "Dnepr". So called new road bike with a sidecar, created in Kiev Motorcycle Plant. In accordance with the methodology adopted by the people of Kiev have divided the development process of the machine in two steps. The first - is the construction, testing, debugging and manufacturing engine - more powerful and more economical. It is installed on the vehicle-part model is now manufactured. The second - the development of advanced vehicle-part, which is mounted already mastered, but a forced induction engine
The engine crankshaft MT8 non-stackable (cast) of ductile iron. Lower head split connecting rods rotate on the sliding bearings (bushings), borrowed from the engine "Moskvich-408". Replacement pads are relatively simple, it requires on average after 50 thousand kilometers. Plain bearings are very demanding on the oil clean, so it is purified in a centrifuge mounted on the front of the crankshaft journal. Recall: the engine 750m K-rod bearings of the crankshaft are lubricated by feeding flowing from the jet pump. In MT8 oil supplied to these nodes at a higher pressure (2-4 atm.) With a pre-treatment in a centrifuge. This greatly reduces the wear of the friction surfaces and increases component life. Even when pressing on the foot control with a powerful pump to deliver oil to the lubrication points, making it easier to start the engine. The original pressure reducing valve bypass oil, preventing it is not mixed with purified centrifuge.

My name is Denis, I am studying at the National Aerospace University "HAI", specialties of rocket and space complexes. This paper would like fashin the full range of course design. Your attention is available aircraft class "air-air". Rocket R-24 сompleted the normal aerodynamic scheme with destabilizers located on homing housing. The missile can be equipped with semi-active radar homing (R-24R) or heat (R-24T). The size and position destabilizers are selected depending on the type of GOS thus to maintain constant torque characteristics of a rocket.
The most noticeable external difference between the new missiles on the P-23 was the use of forward-swept wings with the back edge. Changed and interior layout, the number of sections was reduced from 8 to 5. The first compartment has traditionally been a seeker. Rod warhead with a blast radius of 10 m and a slam-actuator is moved into the third compartment.
Solid engine PRD-287 forms a fourth compartment. The engine has an increased work time, provides greater range and flight speed of up to M = 3.5.
In the fifth compartment around the flue elongated nozzle unit housed gas generators providing power steering gears.
The wing has a trapezoidal form in plan and with sharpened edges of the front and rear sides. Linked wing body consists of extruded sheets made of alloy AK-4 and connected thereto duralumin sheet. The stamped sheet has internal cavity to facilitate the weight of the wing. From the installation of the wing in the housing placed seven pins, which pass through the slot. The said channel input profile, raspolozhen¬ny on the engine and wing studs pass through slots curly profile.
Steering compartment is a metal housing made of aluminum alloy. The front and rear of the chassis has screw holes which connect the steering compartment with adjacent compartments (engine and tail fairing). Tail fairing consists of a hollow cylindrical fairing and proper sealing ring. The fairing pressed four nuts that are screwed in the screws that connect the steering compartment fairing. In front of the steering compartment at the bottom of the hatch is located, close lid, and employee access to a plug socket. The connector is mounted inside the housing on the bracket and is designed for electrical communication apparatus, placed inside the compartment with the missile units.
Inside the compartment is placed the base, which establishes four pillars with bearings. It supports the axles are mounted earrings gas drives the rudders. At the rear of the base of four node detent wheel mounted and secured four legs. Each support is mounted on a ring attached bolt and serves for installation in her booster rocket. A lever connected through the shaft with the support, is connected via rollers (the puck) with a fork steering rod drive gas. Thus, any movement of the gas actuator stem (with razarretirovannom wheel) rotates the support and mounted on her wheel. The direction of the deviation of each of the four ru¬ley during ground inspections of functioning missile equipment is controlled by the inscriptions applied on the body compartment, front (on the fly) each support. Shafts arretirnym detent device consisting (for each shaft) of the piston and spring. Arretirnoe device is fixed with two screws. Moving the piston and out of the shaft groove occurs when entering the gas nozzle in the collector channel.
The compartment is designed to control the aircraft during the flight, due to the supply of hot gas under pressure to the control units. Compartment consists of two main blocks: the collector and steering.
The principle of operation of the collector compartment is as follows. As a result, the electric ignition pirosvechey mechanical discharger begins burning fuel charge in gas generators.
Since the gas generators hot gas under high pressure, with filtration of fine and coarse particles is supplied to the charge collector, in which it is reduced from eight channels into one. The collector of the gas distributor, reducers, high and low pressure of the system supplying hot gases to the servos.

Greetings, my name is Nikita Bogdanov, I am a fourth year student of the Belgorod State Technological University named after Shukhov, I study at the Faculty of "Mechanical equipment" my specialty – is Mechanical Engineer and my specialization – is to use computer aided design systems in design of mechanical equipment, and I want to introduce you the topic of my qualifying, graduate work, which I will defend this year. Equipment that is used in my project - the rotary kiln for cement production. Kiln - is the main process unit of any cement plant. And It is very important because klinker and cement quality depends on correct performance of this equipment.
As the construction of the rotary kiln is very complicated, this qualification work was shared between 3 students with my uni-comrades (Konstantin Vavilov and Mikhail Shvec). I believe, working on this project will give us essential experience that will us help in future professional activities. Though, each of us creates different assembly units of one machine, it is very important to avoid mistakes in this process. The final result of our qualifying project depends on our well-coordinated teamwork.
We began to work on this project ten months ago, during a summer practice at the university, with the analysis of the equipment industry of building materials. I carried out market analysis of this equipment and found products of leading Kiln manufacturers (Flsmidth, KHD Humboldt Wedag, ThyssenKrupp, and others). We have analyzed advantages and disadvantages of presented examples. Kilns are different in the diameter and length, number of supports, design of the sealing device, the type of the support bearing and etc. Generally, Kilns have a number of drawbacks: the heat loss due to imperfect sealing device, the complexity of the repair, wear of tire and ring gear.
Manufacturers produce both 2-base kiln (which is considered to be more progressive solution, because of lower metal consumption) and 3-base-kiln (it is classical solution and that is why it is quite easy to operate). Therefore, We proposed possible solutions of these problems, approved by university professors staff, aimed to improve disadvantages of the kiln.
Then we formulated the goal of our project:
-Create a unified digital model, which allows to control the structure of equipment and have two different types of kiln- 2-base-kiln and 3-base-kiln 4x60m.
-Conduct improvement of assembly units of both kilns s in order to increase the efficiency of the kilns based of patent search.
We use NX, and Teamcenter to work on our graduation project. Opportunities of the software NX and Teamcenter allow us to make all what we have planned before. In unified digital model, we will create two options quite different in design kilns: 2-base-kiln and 3-base-kiln. While these kilns are of equal size, but they have different designs:
2-base-kiln have a friction drive, self-adjustable roller support
3-base-kiln have a gear drive, tangential, tangential mounting of the tyre.
These kilns have a different steel shells (order and number of shells)
And both of them have the same supporting bearing, sealing and hydraulic thrust devices.
After that, we developed the structure of our machine in the Teamcenter manager structure and divided the workload between each of us to have the implementation process of qualifying work more balanced. It is a very important, as the process of the structure development can be changed in extreme case. Here you can see assembly units and specification of our kiln made in Teamcenter structure manager:
1)Rotary part of the 3 base-kiln, 2) Rotary part of the 2 base-kiln, 3) Ø400 Roller support of 3-base kiln , 4) Ø450 Roller support of 3-base kiln , 5) Ø400 Roller support of 2-base kiln, 6) Gearing drive, 7)Ring gear, 8) Under-Ring gear, 9) Friction drive, 10) Cold end seal, 11) Hot end seal, 12) Hydraulic Thrust Device.
The finished components was revised by professors staff (technical control, compliance assessment, control of the project manager) with help of work process in Teamcenter. In case of mistakes, we discuss the problems with professors and improve parts and components until it finally approved, without the possibility of further changes.
Our project contains 12435 parts, including 552 unique parts.
In our work we also use a SSP - prototype of the standard solutions. This is open data-model (prepared set of settings and methods) which Siemens PLM software deliver to users all over the world. In our work SSP helped us to adapt work of NX and Teamcenter to conditons of russian stantards - GOST and ESKD. Moreover SSP had great functional affecting process of creating drawings like automatic filling of labels on sheets. This features helped us a lot, and made process of implementation of our diploma work much more easy.
Then, as part of the degree project we developed design documentation on 2-base-kiln, conducted strength l conditions of the kiln body in CAE-Nastran and made a set of working drawings.

Portable speakers are everywhere nowadays, making them a must-have gadget. The variety of portable speakers are immense, with different approaches, being sound and style the most popular among companies. The portable speakers that have a gorgeous sound are hideous to look, in contrast with those that are appealing, that sound horrible. There was no speaker that possess both qualities until the A&H speaker was designed.
The A&H portable speaker is a stunning piece of art. The A&H accomplish two of the most critical criteria for designing a portable speaker, sound and style. The A&H is a mono sound speaker, with a passive radiator to give the extra bass punch. The brain of the speaker is a powerful, but battery friendly amp, with Bluetooth capabilities and an aux output. The A&H have a gigantic battery that not only powers the unit itself, but it will let you change your phone. All this features are enclosed in the magnificent box with a leather and bronze finishing. The A&H portable speaker is the most beautiful speaker I ever seen, not because I design it, but because it is.
I am a student at the University of Texas at Rio Grande Valley, and I design one of the most, if not the most, marvelous speaker of the market.
