  • In pursuit of Grand Piano Performance in sound, touch and action.

     

    Hi everybody, my names Matthew Anderson and this is a design replica of the Yamaha Grand Piano N3. 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.

  • I am Pranshu Dwivedi, designer of the AMIGO Vertical Axis Wind Turbine. I am a 4th year Aeronautical student at Inholland University of Applied Sciences, Delft -The Netherlands.

    The design represents a wind energy solution for urban green people, suitable design for cities to place at rooftops, backyards or gardens.

    The helical blade vertical axis wind turbine is designed using ANSYS. Most of the rotor structure is a combination of composite material with wood, which provided enough strength as well as a cool aesthetic look. The tower is made of Aluminium. At the bottom, the wooden box is present to hold everything together and damps the vibration issue in the structure as well.

  • Thomas Salverson Radial Engine.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.

  • 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.

I designed this quadcopter as one of my first projects fully understanding a 3D modeling software. This design was done completely from scratch but is drawn to scale. The color scheme and reflections were difficult to get to work together because of the way the shell is shaped. But for the most part the colors worked well together.

For my CAD project (Solid Edge), I made this unusual-looking WWII plane. I used two of my brother's models, two of his books, various internet images, various Youtube videos, and my own simplifications and imagination to design it. The color scheme is based on that of the models, and I decided to use the metallic color because it looked neat. This render is from a CAD model slightly different from the one that I submitted for class. I've also uploaded the saved video of the Solid Edge animation of the retractable landing gear - just because I am so excited that I got it to work! Smiley Very Happy

    Hello, my name is Jares,

     

    The image is of what is considered a Sisyphean Automaton, an automaton being a moving mechanical device made in imitation of a human being and Sisyphean as despite the fact that he is pusing the boulder and it never actually going anywhere. It is also meant to be a depiction of Sisyphus in Tartarus pushing the boulder up the mountain for eternity.

     

    The model was created as part of the University of Alabama in Huntsville's Intro to Computational Tools course to design something with a motor that moves at least 5 parts. I chose to make this automaton as I greatly enjoy machines whose entire intent is to have a net change of zero, such as the useless machine, or in this case, a Sisyphean Automaton. The original Lego mechanism is by JK brickworks and was adapted by myself to better fit my creative vision. Minor changes were made to the mechanism for slightly better motion and there was a redisign of the case itself.

     

    The model takes heavy influence from Greek mythology of Tartarus and depicts King Sisyphus pushing the boulder, the wheel of King Ixion, and a scene of the pond and tree of King Tantalus. There is also a plaque on Sisyphus' right that is a brief description of Tartarus itself. The model is a fully functioning device with 70 parts, 45 being unique and 48 moving. The entirety of the mechanism is powered by a motor on King Ixion's wheel. 

     

    You can see the motion here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YYZn1R3zHmc

     

    As for the design of the case itself, I wanted it to be something that would be something I wouldn't mind having on a coffee table in my dorm. Being someone who is drawn to the woodgrain of 70's and 80's I chose a wooden aesthetic with a gold accent on the plaques. The wall was made glass as to make it possible to see the mechanism. I also wanted the overall design to be simple and not overly ornate as excessive ornamentation distracts from other details. 

     

    I would like to thank you for taking the time to read my (as always) excessive description.

  • 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.

  • 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.)

    Dnepr Motorcycle engine-May Winner

    Visionary

    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.)

  •      I created the model using Solid Edge, rendered using Keyshot.  I modeled the moving parts first, in the order of their movement:  starting with the windup key, then progressing to the brass gear and coil on the left, then to the brass gears at the bottom, then to the silver wheel on the right and the purple coil beneath it, saving the hands until I created the face.  I then began the assembly, using it to determine the size of the casing, and basing the mounting back (which can only slightly be seen in the picture) entirely on the positions of the gears.

         The image is from above.  All parts are showing, so some of the detail of the gears is obscured by the casing, but the case has enough open space that the inner workings are still mostly visible.
