University Students Learn Hands-On Skills for Solving Automotive Engineering Problems

May 23rd, 2018 by Mitch Bossart, Industry Writer for GoEngineer

GoEngineer sponsors the University of Texas at Dallas (UTD) in competing against international university teams.

The Formula SAE® Series competitions provide opportunities for undergraduate and graduate students to conceive, design, fabricate, and develop short-wheelbase formula-style vehicles. The challenge is to develop a vehicle that can successfully compete in all the events described within the 175-page FSAE rules document. All teams entering the competition must meet strict requirements pertaining to performance and driver safety.

For example, failure during a technical inspection means a team is not allowed to operate their vehicle under power, which means they can’t compete against other teams in the dynamic events.

The Rigors of Product Development

“This is the real deal,” says Dave Schaller, Education Manager at GoEngineer. “Formula SAE pulls no punches. University students get to experience the rigors of product development—the successes and failures.” Requirements include vehicle configuration, driver’s cell, minimum material requirements, main and front roll hoops, bracing, safety equipment, fasteners, and much more.

However, there are few restrictions on overall vehicle design, so students can express their ingenuity and take innovative approaches to vehicle design. The competition provides an opportunity to demonstrate engineering know-how among similar peers from around the globe.

Lazy Man’s Solution to Feed the Cats

September 29th, 2017 by Jacob Bakovsky

3D printing solution makes it all possible – one step at a time

Imagine an automated way to feed your pets. Think of the time you’d save. Think of the hassles you’d eliminate. My kitties need to be feed twice daily, so I set out to make the process easier using both CAD and 3D printing.

For the manual method of food delivery to my cats, I have to measure out 1/3 cup of kitty kibbles with a  measuring scoop and then deliver the food into each respective dish.

I have two cats, so I have to do this for each bowl, twice a day.

It would be easier just to turn a handle, and in a matter of seconds, deliver the proper amount of food to each kitty at the same time – at least, that’s what I hoped.
