  • 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.

  • Hello, my name is Gavin Corey and I have designed a Triathlon bike which exhibits the latest technology in the Triathlon racing world. 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.

    I am a Final Year Mechanical Engineering student at the Ulster University, Northern Ireland. This project will be used in my CAD module for this semester. I am a competitive triathlete with a keen eye for design and for this reason I wanted to enhance my capabilities in CAD whilst also developing an understanding of how bicycles are designed.Bike Complete Assembly Render.jpg

    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.

  • 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. The keys are actually functional in animation and move the proper levers and subkeys with single motors.

  • Hello!  My name is Katie, and I am studying Aerospace Engineering at the University of Alabama in Huntsville.  I designed a Vergeltungswaffe 2, commonly known as the V2 rocket, using Solid Edge.

     

    I started by building the outside of the rocket first and then worked my way inwards.  That way, when I was building the assembly, I would automatically know if the parts were too big and could adjust immediately to save time.  After building the exterior of the rocket, I designed the combustion chamber which I considered the most complex part.  All my other parts were designed around the combustion chamber.

  • Dear Siemens community, my name is Yessenzhan Issenov and I decided to create 3D model of the iconic car using Solid Edge ST10. I am a student at Southern Alberta Institute of Technology (Canada) and worked as a geophysicist in the past. My goal was to restore my basic Solid Edge skills and to prove myself that I can design more or less complicated assembly that looks visually appealing. The idea of designing a spoke wheel seemed to be challenging for me; therefore, I decided to start from it.

     

    My Bugatti assembly consists of different parts such as frame, suspension, engine, transmission, body parts, radiator, wheels, fuel tank, front/rear lights, seats, belts, functional steering mechanism, and others. It took me about 600+ hours to complete my model in Solid Edge and few times I wanted to give up. Another time consuming part was high quality Keyshot rendering with variety of colors, materials, environments, etc..The entire assembly is around 1.2 GB of data for 63 different parts. I have used actual pictures of this car as a reference for approximate dimensions and accuracy. Most of parts can move which can be seen from the video that I uploaded on youtube (Bugatti Type 35 Solid Edge). 

     

    I have been learning automotive technologies and cars since my childhood. I really love working on my cars in the garage and solve different types of mechanical challenges. Solid Edge is a fantastic tool to design anything even for people whose profession is in different area. The designing of this car is a great opportunity to learn new techniques and tools in Solid Edge.

As we move towards a new age of music, electronic pianos have become more and more widely used by artists. The images here show a wonderful integration between the new technology and the classic design shape of the grand piano hand in hand.

     

    It was designed using NX 10 as one of my first year projects. Having never used the software prior to starting University, it's great to see how as you learn and pick up things, the design begins to take on a life of it's own.

  • 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.2 — копия.jpgrotary kilns

    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.2 — копия.jpgrotary kilns

    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.

  • My name is Konrad Hejberger. In June 2017, I finished my engineering studies in the Bészédes József MMIK high school. During the four years spent there, I have gained a lot of experience in all fields of engineering, including various CAD (Solid Edge) jobs. I tried to learn the program as hard as possible so I did not only do my homework, but if I had the opportunity, I also called my own projects for competitions.

    I live in a small village in Adorján (Serbia) near the Tisza, many years ago with my dad we often went fishing to the river. The boat engine was very helpful to us on the relatively fast flowing river. Without the boat motor, we could have pulled the paddles for hours, that we can reach the shore. Last but not least, all my work so far has been decided to model the boat engine below, which was a great help for us on the river. By this work I will associate to my past (the most beautiful experiences of my childhood), my future (I'm going to be a mechanical engineer) with my current life. I would like to show this to myself and to everyone that I am here, and I have learned this in high school years.

    It was not a down rush, though, that making a CAD model for a boat engine was a big challenge for me. For the assembly, I had to add 445 parts, of which 245 were different. I did it in just 8 weeks! In my calculations, I spent 400 hours - but it was worth it!

    After finishing the Solid Edge models, I rendered them in Keyshot to pictures (attachments), made one YouTube video, and one poster.

    UPDATE: On July 26, I received the notice that from September onwards I can learn in Hungary. I will continue to study at the GAMF Faculty of the Neumann János University in Kecskemét as a mechanical engineer, for this I needed 280 points, but I surpassed to get it by 409 points.
    As well as being a part of this, I am part of dual training at Linamar company in Orosháza. The company's reputation is based on precision machining of metal gears and powertrain products for the automotive industry. However, Linamar's expertise, systems and experience are far beyond the automotive industry.
    I am very excited about the upcoming events, but I know that with enough perseverance, everything will succeed.

  • 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
