Double Sided Aluminum Clamp.
Need redesign of part to make it easier to manufacture on CNC mill. Currently, the easiest method is waterjetting the clamping profile before finishing on the CNC mill. We would like to make the manufacturing easier and all in one MILL.
Easier to machine and still looks aesthetically pleasing, and retains full functionality.
Don't Wants:
A block with holes.

Could you please tell me why you cant manufacture this design in CNC mill completely? What is the diameter of the smallest tool you can use in your CNC mill machine ?
Thu, 29 Jan 2015 01:47:10 +0000
What level of manufacturing is available? Three axis manual -- CNC jobcenter? What kind of clamping force? What alloy of AL?

Hello Blake,

Do we copy exact positions and dimensions of holes?



Wed, 28 Jan 2015 20:14:22 +0000
The material is Aluminum.

I know you specified Solidworks, but any reason I couldn't do the work in AutoCAD 2014 3D?
Thanks, Aaron

A complex helix for visualising a pedagogic hypothesis
The spiral of learning (Kolb & Kolb) is a simple helix visualising the learner's progress. I need to visualise a more complex spiral. Turns on this helix are circular. Each turn represents an interaction between teacher and learner. This helix contains 1 grand turn. A grand turn contains at least 3 smaller turns. This creates a turn complex. Each turn achieves a small or large rise on the z axis depending on the diameter of the turns on the x and y axes. In elevation view the turn complex should have a stepped appearance due to the presence of the smaller turns, with the lowest steps at left and the highest at right. The idea to be communicated is that the larger turns contain at least 3-5 smaller turns. Each turn achieves a small increase in z-height as the learner exits the turn, like freeway traffic using a cloverleaf junction. Multiple interactive turns aggregate to a large gain in z-height. In the attached illustration, the largest loop should be understood as not a part of the visualisation. I would like to see two variations of the design: (1) smaller turns ranged on outside of grand turn diameter (2) smaller turns ranged on inside of grand turn diameter.
SolidWorks Simple Box with 2 Cords - Freelance 3D Designer Contest
Keep the dimensions of the box exactly as they are in the 2D version (they are in imperial but can be changed to metric in the solidworks file) I'm looking for a clean 3D Solidworks file of the exterior with the 2 cords that can pull out almost to look like an assembly drawing in Solidworks. I'm not looking to get detailed on what the product is or how it will work, but the top port is a Micro USB, and the bottom port is a Lightning USB. The notches on both are for fingernails and a cord will pull out. There is a very small power button on the bottom and 4 LED lights on the back side that I will update soon. I'm looking for conceptual nice looking design to use for sale of the product.
Liver Shell
Design should be of a liver shell. It should be an anatomically accurate model that can be printed if needed to. The inside should be hallow and the liver should include a hole on top where the hyper-vein would normally be and a hole on bottom where the vein would leave. The liver shell should be a 2 piece design that can be clicked/ screwed together to symmetrically put together the 2 halves. A more simplified version of this will be perfect.
Outdoor TV Enclosure
Design an outdoor TV Enclosure for 32" flat screen TV to be used outdoor such as backyard, pool, or cafeteria. - Inside the enclosure will hold flat screen TV with dimension of 30" x 18" x 2" (W x H x D). Dept can be extended if needed. - TV must be safely secure inside the enclosure when not attach to the VESA Wall mount - Must be able to mount with VESA Wall mount standard of 200mm x 200mm - Water resistant but does not need to be completely waterproofed - Have a cooling system, either ventilation for airflow (Fans) or cool down liquid (Freon) - A sound bar will be located in the bottom of the enclosure - Would be nice if the enclosure has feet that can be pushed in or pulled out when place on the ground to keep it balance.
