This is the latest model from solidworkstutor.com for which a tutorial is planned. It will be an intermediate to advanced tutorial with suface geometry modelling and mechanical assembly. A working belt drive is used to drive the rear wheel. A steering mechanism is also included. Look out for the tutorial in the coming month.
SolidWorksTutor will be releasing a new module on Concept designs with a focus on transport for students who wish to progress their knowledge of SolidWorks in the modelling of exciting designs. Watch out for this in the near future.
SolidWorsksTutor.com has just released this model of a working hydraulic pump ideal for student projects where a linear actuator is required. The pump is driven by an MFA ComoDrill gearbox. With the inclusion of oil (vegetable oil is quite satisfactory) in the system, considerable push and pull forces can be achieved. The large syringe is the master cylinder and is best driving a smaller syringe at the actuation end.
All of the SolidWorks Files for this model are available to purchase at a site license rate. The acrylic part drawings can be easily converted to DXF and machined or laser cut. The Gearbox model is also included in the package which is downloaded as a Zip file.
