Waldron Inspires


This poster was prepared as a gift to Ken Waldron on his 70th birthday and given to him at a conference organized in his honor. Anuj Taneja generated the SolidWorks model in 2006 from the original drawings of the Adaptive Suspension Vehicle. I recently found the electronic files and Kaustubh Sonawale generated the four-view drawing. The ASV is an important feat of engineering and the stories shared by those who worked on it were wonderful.

Design Exchange and HCD Connect

Interesting examples of web-sites designed to share information about project engineering methods and practice can be found at the two following sites:

Design Exchange

Design Exchange

1. The Design Exchange site managed by Celeste Roschuni of the Berkeley Expert Systems Technologies Laboratory under the direction of Prof. Alice Agogino.

HCDconnect

IDEO’s HCDconnect

2. The company IDEO, whose principal Dave Kelly is associated with Stanford’s d.School, has established a non-profit effort funded by Bill and Melinda Gates called IDEO.org which has built HCDConnect.

Mechanism Generator 2.0 (MechGen 2)

We have a trial version of our Mechanism Generator 2.0 software available. MechGen 2 reads five task positions of a moving part in SolidWorks and generates a set of linkages that approximate the positions within specified tolerances. An animation previewer shows how each linkage moves. Select one and MechGen 2 generates the solid model of the linkage.

This video demonstrates the operation of MechGen 2:

This is the result of excellent work by Alex Arredondo and Kaustubh Sonawale.
