Aye!! TYCO.. .. Please don't post that name ever again in my presence.. I USED to work for Puritan Bennet (PB).. Till TYCO came and bought them... 6 months later our facility closed, as well as other former PB facilities.. 3 months after that.. TYCO was on the NEWS across the globe.. $$$$ ... But thats another story...

Thought about going to SIEMENS for MechanicalDesign/Electro-Mechanical work.. Didn't know they were so vast. They have a cell-phone site close to me..

I was bored today and decided to go play at the Tamiya facility in Aliso Viejo, Ca. I think I'll do the same thing for the next three days. Reedy Time.

Ian, did you create the springs yourself or did you import a SLDPRT file from somewhere else? I use SolidWorks regularly at work and home as my default CAD program. The Mechanical Engineering dept. at my school uses Pro/E exclusively. Here are two shots of my final project for my first design class (fall '05). These were done in Pro/E Wildfire 2.0...we've since upgraded to 3.0.

Yes they are, including Solid Oxide Fuel Cells in Pittsbugh.

I made them myself, if you look closely the ends still aren't right but there close enough. To do what i did is easy in solidworks but I couldnt figure out a way to do them properly.

Look at all the parts of the current Yukon/Denali headlamps or the Pontiac G6 headlamps and picture those in 3D math data..... some of my handy work.
Unigraphics is also a good program.

FYI- The mold for just one hand of the Yukon headlamp lens is about a 5'x5' block of metal.
