It has been a busy few years, with such a fun variety of different jobs, including 4K pan/tilt space cameras, robotic drum kits, satellite concepts, various bespoke 3D printed UAVs, and space mechanisms design/manufacture advice. Never a dull moment! Plan is to go into more detail with more frequent posts in the future. In the meantime, we shall update our website (and CV).
We are now looking to take on new work, everything from CAD to consultancy, so if you or anybody you know are interested, please get in touch.

A very busy year so far! More exciting updates coming soon, but in the meantime here is a job completed for a local client of @Remap – our client, who suffers from neuropathy, found that he was in danger of tipping his already modified armchair over when getting up. This simple safety device works in conjunction with the existing modifications to prevent tipping. And a great man to work for – always a bonus.
In conjunction with LimbCare, we recently helped out a REMAP colleague with the design of some new 3D printed lightweight joints and clamp for his superb (award-winning!) concept, which allows double amputees, both above and below elbow, to begin to feed themselves as soon as possible following surgery.
Following a productive 6 months providing consultancy services to SSTL, Major Engineering Ltd is now taking on new work. Please do not hesitate to make contact if we can be of any help to you and your project. Quotes are always free. For full capabilities please visit our website. CV available to download.
A very fast turnaround was required on this job, to be completed in time for display on TOTAL’s stand at the EAGE Conference in Paris. From being given the go ahead, a design was created and delivered within 3 days, ready to be 3D printed in carbon. An efficient and meticulous client – hope we can work together again!

Great to hear back from @martyn regarding his speaker build. The build is finished and we have a happy customer. And they look great! With the client’s specification in mind, #MEL carried out #design work and provided a full drawing pack along with #manufacture advice.
With our main contract now at an end, Major Engineering Ltd #MEL is taking on new work. Please do not hesitate to make contact if you or anybody you know requires #mechanical #design, #consultancy or general #engineering services. Any size of job. Full capability detailed on our website. Quotes are always free.
We were approached by a very discerning customer requesting #design work and #manufacture advice for an audiophile grade custom speaker. With his specification in mind, Major Engineering Ltd #MEL advised the best way forward, and then produced models, renderings, and a configured drawing pack ready for CNC machining. A fascinating job – best of luck with the rest of the build!
When dealing with complex curves (such as aerofoils), one may see unexpected behaviour when trying to create a closed region. You insert an offset line perhaps (making two complex curves), close off the area with carefully positioned small lines, trim where necessary (normally a useful check in itself), and all seems well. Even when doing a “Select Chain” and checking the sketch relations, everything appears correct and present. Alas, the region cannot be used for an extrusion, loft, or any other similar feature operation, with SolidWorks insisting that the region is not closed. Get around the problem by closing the region with excessive overlapping lines, trim it back, and then it should work. Hope this helps somebody!
