  • Technical drawings and documentation
  • Material / Laminate / Bonding specifications and more...

Software Development

  • There might be still some room for improvement in your CAD office in respect of:
  • Parametric modeling methodologies,
  • Usage of advanced modelling techniques,
  • Usage of user-defined features to manage common standards,
  • Weight control of the overall product.
  • Get in contact to find out whether we can help you out to solve your specific problems.

Engineering services:

Carbon composite development, as well as various kinds of mechanical design and development work. Specialized in free form surfacing, my passion is to create lightweight and functional design solutions. Recently I am involved in the design and development of small combustion engines as well as hybrid gearbox development.

As I am using open source software quite often, I would like to share some of my work and ideas here. Please feel free to check out the blog and download pages to maybe find something useful.

Gyoroid als geeignete Füllstruktur fuer AM

on 2018-06-24

Gyoroid als geeignete Füllstruktur fuer AM Die Gyroid Fläche ist eine mathematische Fläche, die sich ggf. als Füllstruktur für Bauteile anbietet, die im 3D Druckverfahren hergestellt werden (“Additive Manufacturing”). 3D-Viewer: Der 3D Viewer wird auf älteren Web-Browsern nicht dargestellt. Vorteile: Geringer Materialbedarf und somit geringes Gewicht, in allen Richtungen nahezu gleiche Festigkeitseigenschaften (Formstabilität), geeignet für 3D-Druck, da keine Stützstruktur erforderlich. Nachteile: komplexe Geometrie und hoher Rechenaufwand beim Erstellen der Geometrie, CAD Modelle werden sehr groß und erreichen schnell die Machbarkeitsgrenze mit herkömmlichen CAD Systemen,

CATSkript - Voronoi Mesh Generator

on 2018-05-28

Idee: Mesh Generator als Catia-Makro Demo 1 Demo 2 Demo 3 Vorwort: Der Mesh Generator erzeugt automatisch eine Voronoi Struktur. Als Eingabe dient dabei ein Sketcher (Catia) mit einer 2D-Punktewolke. Die Punktewolke kann dabei regelmäßig (auskonstruiert) oder scheinbar regellos sein. Die Reihenfolge der Punkte spielt für die Generierung der Struktur (Mesh) keine Rolle. Punkte können beliebig ergänzt oder entfernt werden.

STL Viewer

on 2018-02-24

STL-Viewer STL Files: STL (an abbreviation of “stereolithography”) is a file format native to the stereolithography CAD software. Nowadays STL files are widley used within 3D-Printing technology. Please note: This project is currently flagged as experimental. The viewer is implemented as a web-application which emulates a local web-server. Known Problem so far: The application has a memory limit, which might be reached quite soon. In other words: when trying to view STL-files bigger than appr.

STL files: Convert from ascii to binary

on 2018-01-12

Convert STL files from ascii to binary STL (an abbreviation of “stereolithography”) is a file format native to the stereolithography CAD software. For a full description of the specification refer to the following links: https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/STL-Schnittstelle https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/STL_(file_format) Purpose: Since the introduction of the 3D-Printing technology, the stereolithy (STL) file format has become very popular. In general, there are 2 possible file-formats : ascii and binary STL files. The most common format is ascii, although it consumes a lot more disc space and also takes significant more time to read in comarison to its binary counterpart.
