Machine Design – Topology Optimization: practical example using “Shape Generator” new tool in Autodesk Inventor Professional 2017:
In this practical lecture, I provide you a detailed explanation about how to apply the concept of topology optimization using “Shape Generator” new featured tool which added by Autodesk company to its package of Inventor Professional for 3D engineering design, 2017 new edition.
Proximity, capacitance, and photoelectric sensors play an important role in the robust control of industrial machines. To select the proper sensor for a given job, engineers should start with a clear understanding of the application requirements, sensor specifications, and installation demands. This lecture is a look at the importance of factors like sensing distance, environmental effects, connectivity concerns, and mounting options.
This lecture contains a detailed explanation about kinematics of open chain (series) robot, forward and inverse kinematics. Also the lecture discusses the Dinavit & Hartenberg convention and its parameters, in addition to the algorithm for determining the final homogeneous matrix representative for all open chain robots. At the end of this lecture, there is a solved practice about D-H convention applied on 5 degrees of freedom (5 DOF) series robot as an executive example.
