Cap screws and machine screws

39 11 Intermediate
Cap screws and machine screws are similar in shape, differing only in their relative sizes. Machine screws are usually smaller in size, compared to cap screws. These are used for fastening two parts, one with clearance hole and the other with tapped hole. The clearance of the unthreaded hole need not be shown on the drawing as its presence is obvious. Figure 5.24 shows different types of cap and machine screws, with proportions marked Cap screws are produced in finish form and are used on machines where accuracy and appearance are important. As cap screws are inferior to studs, they are used only on machines requiring few adjustments and are not suitable where frequent removal is necessary. These are produced in different diameters, upto a maximum of 100 mm and lengths 250 mm. Machine screws are produced with a naturally bright finish and are not heat treated. They are particularly adopted for screwing into thin materials and the smaller ones are threaded throughout the length. They are used in fire-arms, jigs, fixture and dies. They are produced in different diameters upto a maximum of 20 mm and lengths upto 50 mm.

Suspension & Steering Geometry (Front) | 4 Wheeler | Double Wishbone | Anti-Ackerman

6 9 Intermediate
In this video tutorial, i have shown how to make Front Suspension and Steering geometry of a 4 wheeler. Here, I have taken an All terrain Vehicle(ATV) suspension and steering system for reference, but same approach can be applied while designing for Standard cars and other vehicles. Only the parameters will change according to the type and dynamics of the vehicle. Suspension type- Double Wishbone Steering geometry type- Anti-ackerman Model link:- https://grabcad.com/library/suspension-and-steering-geometry-4-wheeler-1 Basic Parameters used :- 1. Wheelbase= 55 inches 2. Trackwidth= 52 inch (Front and Rear same) 3.Front Ground clearance= 15 inches 4. Rear Ground clearance= 14 inches 5. KPI angle= 7° 6. Castor angle= 12° 7. Knuckle length= 6 inches 8. Spindle length= 120 mm 9. Spindle length (for wheel nut)= 75 mm 10. Steering Arm length= 80 mm 11. Steering Arm angle with spindle= 110° 12. Tyre Outer Diameter= 23 inches Please note that these parameters are used just for educating and learning purpose. Concrete calculations and certain other important factors related to Vehicle dynamics and Handling along with suspension analysis are considered and performed before designing any suspension and steering system of any vehicle. But these values are close to the standard industry values. I also used them in various college level projects. So they can be used as reference values.

Surface modelling a mouse in Solidworks

20 8 Intermediate
When you want to model a mouse in Solidworks, e.g. HP X3000 or similar, there is no easy way to do it. You'll need to create several individual surfaces that are trimmed and filleted into the final shape. It is not a linear process because many of the input splines are qualified guesswork, that needs to be revised/reshaped to achieve the wanted result. It is more art than engineering...!

LEGO - 01 Basic Dimensions & Bricks Explained

60 8 Intermediate
I get a lot of questions about how I create LEGO parts. This is Part I - The Basics. Most "standard" parts can be created using only simple math. Standard parts consist of square, circular, and angled blocks - regular geometric blocks. I will refer to BrickLink (www.bricklink.com/), but many others use similar methods: Peeron: http://www.peeron.com/ BrickOwl: http://www.brickowl.com/ Brickipedia: http://lego.wikia.com/wiki/LEGO_Wiki etc.

Converting files to STEP/IGES via 3rd party software

10 7 Intermediate
We’ve added a translator on Workbench that allows users to download a CAD file in STEP, IGES and STL formats, regardless of the format it was uploaded in. This makes it easy to share models with partners who don’t use the same CAD system you do. With just one click your supplier can download any of the neutral formats based on the original file you uploaded.
