Reverse Engineering & 3D Printing Classic Car Parts

Classic car fans can be 3D printed on original part to 3D-scanned; talented digital engineers create new ones. A UK-based firm successfully applies 3D scanning for reverse engineering and uses 3D printing and traditional manufacturing to create prototypes and final parts.

The 4Cs of product design

We put a list of some such questions based on our interactions with over a dozen inclusive and accessible design advocates from the product community, most of whom are informed by their own lived experiences as minorities. The list, by no means a comprehensive one, broadly covers four areas, or 4Cs: Constraints, Context, Comfort, and Colour (in no particular order). Great products are about solving a problem better.

Product design gets an AI makeover

Engineers are under pressure to build products for consumers. With artificial intelligence, simulation software makes engineers’ jobs easier, improves production processes, and spurs innovation. German-based Heller Group’s Zapf says today’s organizations must strike a balance between the design, engineering, manufacturing, operation, and craftsmanship of developing a product. AI is a promising and exploratory area.

Automatic Self Folding Dining Table Voice Activated

The Automatic self-folding dining table folds itself and moves itself to the corner of the room on your command. The self-folding dining table makes use of a dual-motor drive along with IR Sensors. The system is embodied with a controller-based speech recognition system to enable the open and close operation via spoken commands. The same mechanism is used to unfold the table, the user just needs to ask the dining table to close itself.

Metal 3D Printing Expands to Hydraulics & Fluid Power Systems

The limits of conventional hydraulic components are surpassed by 3D printing offering the possibility to create a new generation of hydraulic systems. This technology helps to produce fast prototypes, spare parts, and functional products that can regularly reduce size and weight by 75% compared to conventional hydraulics components.

Electrical 3D Systems Designer

The Electrical 3D Systems designer role delivers a process-specific solution for designing physical wire harnesses. This solution is driven by logical specifications and is assimilated with harness manufacturing preparation. This powerful solution reduces design time and increases the overall quality of large-scale electrical systems by delivering a realistic simulation for 3D wire harness packaging in an integrated environment.

High-Volume Additive Manufacturing of Fluid Power Systems

The meaning of additive manufacturing is to add material only where it is needed. There are a lot of benefits of this technology including lightweight parts, designing complex parts using less material compared to conventional manufacturing. Aidro’s acquisition by Desktop Metal has opened up new fluid power system capabilities. The partnership between Aidro and Desktop Metal will expand high-volume production.

Design Challenge 2021 to culminate in a National Final at One Birdcage Walk

The Design Challenge 2021 National Final took place on 8 October at One Birdcage Walk, London. Design Challenge 2021 had tasked first and second-year university student teams with designing and building a repeatable vehicle which represents the first stages of a robotic vehicle that could be used for materials handling purposes. This helps the participants develop their practical skills enabling them to gain valuable experience of working.
