The Challenge:

How much pressure?  Manufacturers of the valves, regulators and related components needed in these processes must assure that pressures sometimes in excess of 1000 bars are well within the functional range of their products.

The master modeling technique is nothing new. In fact it’s been a common practice in 3D CAD since before SOLIDWORKS Nashville even came on the scene in 1995. If you aren’t familiar with it, the basic idea is that your end product, let’s say some industrial designed enclosure, is one continuous shape, but it’s actually manufactured as many different bodies, sometimes made of different materials that are then assembled together.

  • High-yield methanol production…
  • Food sterilization…
  • Hydrogen Fuel Cells…
  • Diesel and Gasoline Fuel Injection…

An extensive array of industries —renewable energy, automotive, chemical processing and more — have production applications that hinge on creating and maintaining high-pressure operating conditions.

Have you ever been working away on a project, only to be told the CAD file you’ve been using is out of date? Going back to square 1 and starting again is probably the last thing you want to consider in this situation.

I’ve had the privilege of interviewing over 50 engineers while co-hosting the “Being an Engineer Podcast.” I’ve noticed a trend of senior mechanical engineers mentioning that tearing apart and reverse engineering products/gadgets is one of the optimal ways to improve one’s mechanical engineering skill set.

As mentioned in the first part of this blog post, a backup manifold needed to be designed and built in time for Round 7 of the FD season. The schedule left approximately 48 busy hours for design and programming of the CNC cut manifold parts to be done in Canada.

I have created several bee themed videos before for SOLIDWORKS Nashville, the reason for this is to spread awareness for bees. They have lost much of their natural habitat in the past 60 years with threats from pesticides, intensive farming and climate change.
