Job completed for @RemapUK

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.

#SolidWorks #toptip – creating closed off region with complex curves

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!
