  • 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.

    As a part of my degree at Ulster University we had a Computer Aided Engineering module in year four.  We were able to pick our own design to re-create in CAD.  I am a huge Motorsport fan and compete in some forms of Motorsport myself, come September I am also attending Cranfield University to complete a MSc in Advanced Motorsport Engineering.  For these reasons I chose to design and model the hydraulic handbrake system for my Mazda MX5 Rally and Autotest Car.  This is different to the standard hydraulic handbrake set-ups and was therefore newly designed by myself for the MX5.

     

    I set out by measuring parts of the physical components in order to make a accurate representation in CAD.  Various methods were utilised such as, sheet metal design for the brackets, surfacing for the ergonomic handbrake handle and to get the curvature of the gearbox tunnel.  Standard parts were used for the bolts and nuts to join these parts.  Part modelling was also used in many cases to design the handbrake cylinder, using various create-part-in-place functions in order to match the new part to the recesses etc in the current parts.  Various modelling functions could then be used to display the completed model to viewers, such as cut away views and exploded views etc.  Animation was also used to demonstrate the movement, extents of movements and the intended use of the system.  

     

    My degree at Ulster University was a BEng (Hons) Mechanical Engineering with DPP.  I have recently graduated with a first class honours and a distinction in professional practice.  My time at Ulster University was enjoyable and I have learnt a lot that will carry with me during my career.  Thanks must go out to all that have helped me get this far.

  • The all analog synthesizer is inspired by the synths utilized during the 1980s. The design concept was to tribute early synthesizers in a modern style. NX 10 was utilized to create each of the components which make up this design. With the help of the assembly tool, this project was created.

  • My name is Mark Keaney, I am a current Mechanical Engineering student at the University of Alabama in Huntsville, and am submitting the render for our second design project for Introduction to Computational Tools.Ribbon ClimberRibbon Climber

     

    Using NASA's Tether and Robot Climber Contest as inspiration, I have modeled my own version of a tether climber.  Mine is a scaled down version of those submitted by the various teams for NASA's contest but uses similar design concepts. Namely, the use of multiple wheels to provide traction on either side of the tether, and the use of photovoltaic arrays to generate power. 

     

    The primary difference is that the goal of my own design work was to find ways to achieve the desired types and directions of motion using only one simulated motor in the Solid Edge program. I achieved this through a combination of carefully placed rack and pinion gears (for horizontal movement), standard gear relationships, linear motion relationships, and the physical motion option on the simulate motor tab.  

     

    The rack and pinion are used to move the driving wheel into position against the tether which then drives the tether downward through the 4 guide wheels at the top.

  • MY FIRST ......PROJECTMY FIRST ......PROJECT

    my self vinay kr..............

    currently i am persuing diploma from "CRRIT KANJHAWALA" from mechanical stream

    i have made this design completely from "solid edge st 8"...the assembly of 495 parts was also done from "solid edge st8" ....and the rendering was done via "keyshot render"

    it tooks of about 28 days hard work to complete it,,,,,......

    this design is one of the greatest achievement .......according to me.....

    This is the render image of my engine project....this is a petrol engine comprises with 7 pistons....generating a power of about 1900 cc...........which comprises with my new innovative technology.....which i named as "the electronic valve technology".....this replaces the old arrangement of camshaft and timing chain and a lot of mechanical parts with a small component which i named as solenoid valve....these valves are electricity operated which run on 12 volts dc current......there are two types of valve one is inlet solenoid valve (which is connected to the inlet port of engine...and comprises with injector in it to inject fuel) and the other is exhaust solenoid (which is connected to the exhaust manifold).......my design can be illustrated completely by the attachements given below.....

    thanks to siemens for giving me a platform on which i may show my self that what i am.....

  • CLAAS 980 (type 497) forage harvester

    The challenge was to select a product to evaluate ergonomically. Given that I had a background in agriculture, I chose a Jaguar Claas 980 - specifically the type 497 as this was a new prototype model set for release in 2017. The product was modelled and rendered in Siemens NX 10, then transferred to SAMMIE for ergonomic evaluation, alongisde final rendering in Adobe Photoshop.
