Re: Light pipes - guidelines&softwear

thank you guys for comments and support it seems my prelimenary assumptions regarding illuminating evenly the outside cover are fake. More I think about it, more I doubt to make it simple and low cost. So I reconsidered the idea of this power supply. Agreed that trying to evenly light an area that l...

Re: What 3d printer do you use at work?

There is Zortrax M200 at my office. I use it heavily for creating parts related to power or hand tools designs. I ordered samples from Makerbot reseller, Formlabs 2, and Ultimaker 3 in advantage to compare prints to each other with respect to quality and price. IMHO, when quality of surface is a MUS...

Re: Sharp edges design for injected molded parts

small drafts max 0.5 plus high gloss surfaces make the solution, am I right? it makes the design some kind driven: top surfaces textured and adjacent side ones high glossed? it makes sense while comparing this to attached picture

Re: Water proof sealing/gasket design

Thank you guys

I admit: IP68 too much for my application., IP 67 would be appropriate.

Over molded solution seems to fit best to my product.

Question is:

* how to select/develop right cross section of the seal?

* how to calculate compression force?

Re: Plastic latche for tool chest(box)

yes, that is right

the parts are going to be injected, however the tolerances could be an issue here.

That is why I am keen to pick up tension latch design. Has anyone oy you ever calculate it or design tension latch?
