  •      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.

  • My name is Brian.  I'm an Aerospace Engineering student at the University of Alabama in Huntsville.  I designed a quadcopter drone for my Intro to Computational Tools class. 

     

    I didn't really have a plan going into the project except for a basic layout of the interior frame and let the model take shape as I played with various features.  If something worked and looked good on one part I would try to incoprorate that into as many similar components as I could to try to get a uniform feel.

  • My name is Konrad Hejberger. I am a fourth-class student at the Beszédes József MMIK in Magyarkanizsa. I'm studying in the field of mechanical engineering and computer editing for four years, where the teachers are focus on CAD modeling. As a result, during my school years I have gained a high level of experience in using the Solid Edge program.

    During a roughly 30-hour workflow, I could create the gamer mouse model, which contains 40 parts of assembly statistics, of which 29 are different. It was a great and long-lasting task, even in the first moments, to devise the device. Due to the outer plastic cover. Finally, I got a very complicated PathFinder, in which I had to condense almost every command of the surface modeling to get a lifelike copy of the device.

    I also made a printed circuit board, where I put all of these components on it, and I also knit the pencil elements with the cable harness to the other parts. After finishing the Solid Edge models, I rendered them in Keyshot to pictures.

  • 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.

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.

As a project for my class Intro to Computational Tools, I created this Solid Edge model, an adaptation of the Bubble Ship from the movie Oblivion. Daniel Simon, an artist working on the movie, originally created the Bubble Ship based on inpiration from a common dragonfly. I as an aerospace student have been fascinated with Simon's design for years, and I loved the opportunity to study it in detail while also learning to use Solid Edge. The project was a lot of fun, and I hope you find the Bubble Ship as beautiful as I do. Bubble Ship Render 1.jpgBubble ShipBubble Ship Render 2.jpgBubble Ship Back ViewBubble Ship Render 3.jpgBubble Ship Front View

  • Hello, my name is Hannah Smith, and I am an Industrial & Systems Engineering student at the University of Alabama Huntsville. 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.
