I am looking for an engineer who can help us develop a design of a 20 feet (6.1 m) long, 8 feet (2.44 m) wide container for CNG Tanks. This container should hold a series of tanks connected to each other to create a bundle. The idea is to design and optimize the materials of the container by virtually testing it (considering stresses, fatigue, etc.) so we can have the most efficient type with the least weight possible, easy to manufacture, and of course able to hold as much tanks as possible. The structural steel shapes should be commercial ASTM standards (EN) and material should be weathering steel “Corten steel” to avoid rust and which would have to be coated with a ceramic insulation. The container should have vents on the top so if there is any leak the gas could get out of the container easily (note: natural gas is less dense than air so it would automatically go up to the atmosphere fast) this design should let all the gas escape quickly. The container should also have water drainage. It should be design with lugs to be able to load it easily into a trailer platform. This container would be primarily use to supply natural gas to communities or places where there is no pipelines available, so it is also important that when placed on the ground it has no problems with rain water. They should also have connections in both of their sides so you can connect several containers together on both of their ends. Link for more information and dimensions on the tanks: https://www.dropbox.com/sh/u4jc9zsjzl1awhb/AACRuOCU8E46i1efa8bCVSUBa?dl=0 (4" should be added to each side of the tank for valves and conections) We would need a 3D design in solid works and also develop the show drawings for fabrication.

We need to have an expert in CAD/3d design that has some background with mechanical engineering. We need to create a functional dispenser that will sit on a countertop. The dispenser releases 1 product at a time. So need to have the dispenser setup to have some mechanism to push to release 1 product. Dispenser needs to hold quantities of 50 products at a time. We then need to design a cartridge that will go inside of the dispenser. The cartridge should be designed smartly so that it fits into dispenser and functions without having to do a lot to get it setup inside the dispenser. The cartridge should hold 50 tips at a tip. So here are items that need to be created: 1. Dispenser 2. Product Cartridge that goes into dispenser CAD experience is required. We need design to be functional to show realistic features and how this item would work. This is a table top design. So the max measurements for the dispenser should be no more than 9 in. (height) x 7 in. (length) x 6 in. (width). More technical measurements will be given upon being hired. We are looking for innovative designs that show well thought out creativity that makes sense functionally.

Dear All, We need to prototype a disposable watertight container with some characteristics. We need to find someone with prior experience in 3D prototyping of plastic materials items. For us its important to have a first prototype, that we can improve. We have already tried with a private product designer, without big results. Key Characteristics of the item : Plastic material It has a switch to open/close one part of the container (separated from the other) I will edit this text, as soon as i start to receive question related to the item. Thanks, Daniele Lanzetta

Engineer an underwater treadmill based on working prototype and produce a 3D model in Solid Works, and finally production assembly documentation and DXF files for fabricators. Project will be broken down into phases as follows: 1. Door Frame and Door 2. Tub 3. Treadmill Frame and Deck 4. Plumbing and Pumps All aspects will be modeled in solid works to show a completed unit. Primary building materials may include stainless steel sheet metal, acrylic, and PVC. Project is expected to go on for several months and will require lots of follow up consulting and possible design revisions later on. A daily progress meeting will be held each day by telephone. You must be located in the United States.

I had a consumer product re-invented from a metal device into a primarily plastic device. The product is a baby product used by parents with their stroller. So it needs to be durable, have quality to its assembly so it doesn't break and there are few defects, and obviously, the production cost per unit has to remain low because of the demands of this particular market and this type of accessory. The product has already been designed by two product designers and a patent has been applied for. However, two factories looking at producing it are concerned about the material we are considering making the device from, as well as the materials and mechanisms of a couple of the parts in the device. I need a mechanical engineer who can look at what has been done, what was described in the patent application, and what the two factories have said, and then decide what can be done to improve the device so that it meets the requirements stated above. My preference is that you have worked with plastic and metal accessories in the consumer market, particularly in the baby products market.

I am a contractor that is in need of Mechanical, Electrical & Plumbing drawings for a small remodeling job in Philadelphia, PA. I have a set of sealed architectural and structural drawings and now need MEP drawings for my subcontractors to pull the permits. You will need to design a plan for a 2 story building with retail space (barber shop) on the first floor, and 2 apartments, 1 at rear and one on the 2nd floor. If you can have these drawings sealed by a PA registered engineer - great, if not, i will have someone review & seal them locally (you will need to make changes according to their requests). The plans have to be professionally designed and laid out to be presented to the city. Plan screen shots are attached below.
