Are you a student? Do you have a senior project or year-end design paper to complete? The GrabCAD Community can help.
William, a PowerGrabber in the GrabCAD community posted a question on the GrabCAD Q&A about the schoool project he's working on, a design for an RC Car. In the question, he asks other questions, not just about design, but about issue and ideas he can address in the design he is working on.
Feedback for Your School Design Projects
Now, chose a good topic because RC Cars are popular on GrabCAD. But, GrabCAD is a perfect place to post any type of project to receive valuable feedback from professional engineers, designers and other people who may be involved in similar projects. In fact, with such a large group of engineers, I'd say GrabCAD is the best resource you have for getting high-quality, practical input and critique of your design. What's the best way to go about it?
Tips for help on your project
Here are just a few tips to receive the best help from the GrabCAD community:
- Post your questions on the GrabCAD Q&A.
- Link back to some models or concepts you have done for the project.
- List out the requirements for your project.
- List what problems you are approaching.
- Respond to comments to your question.
- Provide an update on the question to show the progress to those who are helping.
With a little input from such a large group of passionate engineers and designers, there are a lot of ideas and suggestions they can provide, that may not have been thought of before, which you can apply to your design. It's like having your own design committee with a vast resource pool of knowledge and interests. If you're in the middle of the project or would just like to have input on a design or idea, post your project and receive some valuable feedback from the GrabCAD community!
