Nearing the end of the series.
For my first application of constraints I applied them to a repetitive design task that I encounter periodically. In this case, I had to vertically feed a flanged cylindrical object by means of a set of four helical feed screws.

From prototype to 1st generation cup sealer.

It's been very rewarding getting the Wilpack Packaging Model 15 cup sealer designed and production ready. The sealer was submitted to the National Restaurant Association's Kitchen Innovations and selected as an award recipient. The NRA show is wrapping up today. I attended to the booth on Sunday and reception of the sealer has been phenomenal.

During the preparations for displaying at the show we began the 2nd generation design phase and was able to produce the first half dozen units for showing and shipping. This involved not only modeling a new 2 part head cover but also getting the molds made. It's the first ever molded parts I've designed. It's so fresh I don't even have a picture of it.

Concurrently we redesigned and updated the Model 20 semi-automatic sealer and also the Model 25 semi-automatic sealer both also fresh enough utilizing a purpose built circuit board providing digital control over sealing temperature and press dwell time.

It's been a busy and very hectic several months and now it's time to move on to the 3rd generation for the Model 15. I'm really looking forward to the end result.

One great advantage of digging into a new release of AutoCAD is exploring not just new commands and tools but discovering tools that one may have never used or tried in the past.

The Ferrari Dino. One of the most beautiful cars ever built. I once worked with a guy that had one, which he let me drive one night. I was young and too intimidated to find out what it could do.
 
2015 Ferrari Dino is an old brand will be taken by Ferrari as a new model, a lot of attention to the news that Ferrari Dino will be back in 2015, this car is rumored to come with a large exterior with a lot of features that support therein, Many features have been created to provide comfort in 2015 Ferrari Dino, many well-known car brands produce cars with smart controls such as cruise control and safety lines so the driver can easily go on the highway. Then, in 2015 Ferrari Dino will be equipped with new advanced technology also has many advanced security features such as blind spot system, rear view system, and collision warning system. the car will be manufactured with the best quality with the creation of a new machine with a small emission, all-new 2015 Ferrari Dino to be built with the support of the advanced features in the 2015 Ferrari Dino.

+Tom Murphy I thought of Sprout when I saw this. Maybe you'll find some inspiration from it for future development.

Jay Z has 99 problems. Keeping track of his CAD time isn't one of them.

Is it because he uses +CadTempo - CAD Time Analytics ?

Nah, probably it's because he doesn't use CAD software.

Visualization of Server Traffic is Like the Coolest Game of Pong

I have to say ... This is pretty mesmerizing. 

Each little "ball" is a request to the server

On the left: the IP numbers from the users connecting around the world

To the right: The url's being served up

In the center: The "static calls being serviced by our front end

The brightness represents the speed with which the code written by our awesome developers delivers data (aided of course the great hardware)

Had any of the balls gone past to the right, that would have been a serve we couldn't return. Try that, Federer!

The perfect Mothers Day gift. Well, except for my Mom - she probably doesn't know who is Doctor Who let alone what a Dalek is.
 
Doctor Who Set of Pewter Dalek Salt & Pepper Shakers

Yes, yes, and more yes. #DoctorWho has been such a great addiction for me, and seeing this reminded me of the lust all true collectors get at some point. Knowing you just have to have that item!

Coincidentally, I'm having a wedding coming up in July and maybe I'll add this to our "list." I'm not sure we'll even register anywhere, but why not? Why should we be any different from any other couples getting married out there. Especially when my better half puts up with my peccadillos like loving zombies and The Doctor. And 100 other Geekly things.

In any case, these are cool!

#doctorwho   #dalek   #geek   #collector   #scifi   #gettinghitched  

P.S. We'll have a longer announcement about the getting hitched thing later, but suffice to say that if you're in Fort Wayne, Indiana around July 25th, you'll be partying with us and with +Keith Cramer and +Scott Cramer!!!

Introduction
I began my career as a draftsman in 1972 after 4 years of drafting classes throughout high school. Several years later I became a machine designer when I worked for Daley Design, a well respected local company doing contract design work and eventually a special machine builder. After a number of years with Daley Design I moved on to a few local companies including Yates American Machine, Barber Colman Automated Mfg. Systems Division, Clinton Electronics, and Atwood Industries. In 1991 I started my own company Engineered Design Solutions after conceiving an idea for a new drinking straw and designing a special machine to produce the straw. I ultimately received an order to build the machine which allowed me to strike out on my own.
 
Here's a few quotes (of my own making) I hope you like and share:

Oxymoronically, virtual reality is literally a real thing.
 
I, for one, am glad that the wheel has been re-invented. Multiple times.
 
Innovation: Seeing a sealed box then creating its contents.
 
Conquer space travel and time travel will take care of itself.
 
The key to time travel is live minute to minute and don't sweat the minutiae.
 
If it weren't for industrial art, art museums would still be caves.

Confusius say: He who overfills Zippo lighter make rash decision.
 
When mandated, innovation isn't.
 
I try to stay away from highfalutin words, but invariably fail.
 
Bragging rights
Not so much a bragging right, but an interesting tidbit: After attending a family reunion several years ago I discovered a family ancestor (Joseph Hewes) was a signer of the Declaration of Independence
