I am looking for a design engineer who is proficient to advanced in SolidWorks for recurring projects. Must have a copy of the software, preferably 2014 or earlier. Must be able to communicate in English on a regular and technical level, and should be aware of common engineering knowledge such as screw threads, fits, tolerances, gdt, retaining rings, springs, bearings, shafts, and common geometries for matching or potentially casting. Experience in design of molded products is preferred but not required.
-3D model generation and co-development with my oversight and assistance.
- machining drawings with tolerances, to be approved or adjusted by me upon completion. A best guess or industry standard should be used as a basis, but I will always confirm or adjust the end result.
-basic mechanical design of products, utilizing material knowledge to design weight/volume efficient components. Products shall be designed with manufacturability in mind, and I will assist as needed with that end of the spectrum
-knowledge of fluid systems or flow control equipment a bonus, but not required
-base knowledge of aluminum/steels/stainless steels/plastics/elastomers required. Experienced knowledge much preferred.
Must have prior work available to demonstrate current capabilities. Written summary of current personal development is preferred but not required. Must show creative thinking or innovative thought in some form.
Design for manufacturing is strongly desired, however not required since I can step in and make necessary modifications if need be, or at least instruct you what to change.
Must have a microphone and be able to use Skype for an initial conference. Eventually, screen capture software and a webcam may be needed, so if you currently possess those items or a smart phone, we will be good to go.
