Molded/Die Cast Part Design
Core and cavity only. No lifts, side pulls or hand-picks. Not for use in mechanical power transmission or where safety might be compromised by mechanical failure.
After we discuss your project, I'll provide a CAD model for you to explore using free software. You determine any changes you want, I update the model. We repeat this once more. I send you 3d and 2d files in the formats used by your tooling vendor. After your vendor provides DFM feedback, I'll make two more rounds of changes for a total of five file submissions.
Training & Qualifications
I'm a Certified SolidWorks Professional in Advanced Modeling. I've been designing plastic parts for nearly twenty years. While I've designed only a few die cast parts, the design rules are similar but less stringent. I've never made a thixo part but I'd be interested in that.
Availability & Preferences
My schedule is flexible.

About Eric Immel
The intersection of art, science, and technology is where I like to play. Whether it's a giant plasma ball, a clever demonstration of Boyle's law, or complex mechanism, it can hold my attention for ...ours. When I was a kid I spent about as much time looking at the vacuum tubes in the back of the TV as I did watching the front. I used to imagine it was a miniature city with big glowing towers where all the power was generated. One artistic goal is to inspire that same wonder by artistic exposition of a scientific phenomenon using technology. I've made singing flames, Jacob's ladders, plasma spheres, rocket engines, all manner of gizzies. Some have been more artistic than others. Some have just been loud or scary enough to be fun. Over the years, I've created literally hundreds of parts using many methods including: plastic injection molding, machining, die casting, sheet metal, etc. I've developed novel assembly processes, producing world class results on a shoestring budget. I've set up small factories . I developed and taught a trade school electronics curriculum from basic atomic theory through linear electronics, radio theory, digital electronics and microprocessor architecture and programming . I hold several patents, mostly in the area of thermal management of very high intensity arc lamps. In the last year, my beloved wife has made it possible for me to ease down from the high tech world into more diversified pursuits. I'm interested in all manner of opportunities for creative endeavor.show moreOpen to other proposals
