  • 2. OT - Gearboxes suppliers...
    We've been a faithful Hub City gearbox user here, we have literally hundereds of them in use on our production lines and generally have been quite satisfied with the in-service performance of the gearboxes. It's the order lead time, and service from Hub City that has us concerned. Recently we ordered 6 of thier Helical Inline boxes, quoted delivery time 2-3 weeks, 10 weeks later I was assured they'd ship the upcoming Friday. Upon delivery, it was noted that they delivered the 4000-series rather than the 2000-series which we ordered... Neither I nor my vendor knew of this change and no one from Hub City informed us of a Ratio change We use a pair of these in a synchronized drive, sharing the load. It's do-able, but a little notice would have been appreciated, especially on a late, $10,000 order. Also, of the 6 boxes ordered there were supposed to be 2 identical, and 4 identical, of the four, they sent one with the obviously wrong motor flange... We had to send it back, we did everything they told us to do, it's been sitting on their receiving dock for 3 weeks because *we* didn't write the RGA number on the outside of the box...hmmm. Anybody had better *service* from gearbox suppliers? Thanks
  • 3. Selection by color
    SW2006 SP4.1 I have imported an assy that has some trash that I don't want, and that particular trash is a unique color. Is there a way to filter/select only those items that match that color so I can window everything and get only & all those items? I've looked a bit but haven't found it. WT
  • 4. Anyone having DWGeditor 2006 menu problems?
    I recently updgraded to SW 2006 SP4.1. Ever since I upgraded, the menu is not not showing up properly. For example, Under FILE, there is NEW and thats it... The other menu items are MODIFY, WINDOW, and HELP. I'm missing all the other menu items. Ive reinstalled multiple times and insured that the visus software was off..... Thanks for your help. TJ
  • 5. Complex Shapes in machine design
    I'm interested in examples of complex shapes in machine design or industrial applications. I'm not talking about plastic parts or consumer products. Stuff like cams, involute gears, pump or compressor housings, impellers, etc. Anyone have any websites, images, SW files or just types of parts that might yield some interesting examples?

Has most Solidworks models for direct download.

Very detailed and great for running COSMOS prior to construction.

I clicked on at least 20 assorted items and no models.  Do you have a 
specific example?

We had the McMaster boys in on 4-13-05 and they were asking about
suggestions, changes and how we used their website.  The first thing which
popped into my mind was to make their 3D models more accessible.

Instead of searching and searching down through all their items, then
entering given specifications, then showing if there was an available
models, just get me to the parts.  If something is exactly as I require,
great, they are number one on the vendor list.  If not, let me modify an
available model/solid for my requirements and I'll search for vendors later,
but I'll get my work done.

They could be a great source for part data and part dimensional

Give me your thoughts, I'm sure they are still open for suggestions and I'm
positive they don't watch this group.

I just thought it would be nice to see what everyone else thought.

1.IMPORT: McMaster Carr parts

Just had a user come to me with a problem. He stated that a pipe
fitting he had downloaded from McMaster had zero weight. I looked into
it and the part was scaled down by 25.4 in the STEP file he had
gotten. Has anybody else run into this?

There were two possible fixes. One was to import with template units
and use mm. The other was to scale the part.

One cause I thought of was that whoever created the STEP didn't write
units into the file since SW by default looks for units in STEP files.

2.Charted drawings - Models warped but flat drawing charted

Ok fellas,
    I will do my best to explain what we do and hopefully it isn't as
difficult as it seems.

We have a sidewall on a body that has a large curve to it.  The model of the
sidewall is modeled curved as that's how it fits into the weldment.  However
the sheet is cut flat and not bent but warped during manufacturing and
welded in place.  What I have then is a model of a curved sheet that really
needs a drawing showing just the flat.  The problem is I want to chart these
with other flats of the same material.  Is there a way to do this.  Cutting
just cuts a flat sheet out of 11 ga material and any other 11 ga could be
charted on this drawing.

If this isn't clear let me know and I'll try to explain better.
