In this lesson we use Sketchup to design a more complex 3D device. This box is not a simple extrusion, because the hinges are extruded along an orthogonal axis. Hence in this lesson we learn how to sketch and extrude in orthogonal planes in the same design. In the end the design worked very well, and we printed it both on the Prusa Mk2 I3 and the Raise3D N2 Plus. Prints were successful on both machine.
OK, they have invited you for an interview. That is great news! Now the job is yours to lose, and it is up to you to be on the top of your game on interview day. This video will help you prepare for the big day. Do the things in this lesson to maximize your chance of landing that dream job.
To have a successful engineering career you want to land that premium job. I mean, get the job everyone dreams of. To do that, you really need to have a good resume. In this lesson I give you the inside secrets to a winning resume. My advise includes things you will not hear anywhere else. I am telling you what you need to know from the perspective of an actual decision maker, not a success coach.
In this lesson we help you to start thinking like a mechanical designer. We go through an example of designing in Sketchup and then building on a 3D printer of a simple mechanical device. For this lesson we will be making a simple case for eye glasses. This example has us think about dimensions and tolerances. We will design to design rules, and then fabricate.
Mechanical Design is a lot more than just drawing. It is about understanding your fabrication infrastructure and design rules. It is also important to understand and be mindful of tolerances when you design. Designing with your fabrication infrastructure in mind will ensure your success. For our case, we are designing for 3D printers. This video covers a simple test structure you can design and build to better understand slip and press fit tolerances.
