Whether it’s bringing your ideas to life, or supporting your design needs I can help you succeed and help make sure that your deliverables are on time! Whether this be on a case by case basis, or more of a long term commitment I can support you.
I have experience in Sheet Metal, Weldments, Surfacing, and Mechanical Fixtures. If you’re tired of doing the same thing over and over, I can help you optimize your designs so that updated parameters can be entered and your design is updated and complete (including drawings) within a few minutes. No more hassling over the small details and doing monotone work.
AutoCAD & PDF Conversion to SolidWorks 3D Models
Need support transferring those PDFs or AutoCAD 2D Drawings to SolidWorks, to update design concepts or for better understanding and comprehension? Perhaps you want to take your designs to the next level and animate them in videos or automate drawing completion. Whichever path you choose, a high level of attention to detail will be given to this conversion process and we will keep your priorities in mind.
Using a variety of techniques, we can begin to automatically update designs.
Use of Global Variables and Equations
Excel Based Design Tables
Use pre-configured part, assembly and drawing templates
Link drawings to the ‘smart’ parts / assemblies so that once the model changes, the drawings updates too with all the views, BOM’s and detailing work already completed.
Implement advanced techniques using DriveWorks to drive changes based on more user-friendly interface that utilize images
Simulations & Testing
Looking to analyze your product beyond simplified paper calculations, or trying to figure out why it failed? Perhaps you’re wanting to understand what kind of stresses are present given certain new scenarios.
Analysis can be done on a part or assembly basis and that includes:
Linear Static Stress, Strain and Displacement
Buckling or Collapse
Event or Time based Motion
Fluid Flow Simulations (including non-Newtonian liquids such as toothpaste, slurry and blood)
Design Optimization and Comfort Parameters Simulation
Animations & Visualizations
Do you want realistic 3D photos of your products for Marketing Brochures or Prospective Clients? Perhaps you’re trying to explain what your product is and does through a video? Rendered photos of your products in a variety of environments or from a variety of angles can be produced on demand. 3D Rendered images of Products can include decals, embedded images, or a composition of products in the same photo. Specific lighting angles are also possible with multiple background options available. Animations can include motorized mechanical movements from a static camera angle or from a camera trajectory.
