Is it possible to create following two shapes from glass using currently known glass mass production techniques?
Shape #1: bottle with a prolonged neck that continues into the inner space, like this (cross section):

I'm trying to make a magnetic globe (magnetic from outside) with diameter of about 30 cm. Please imagine it as a snow globe, while it is magnetic as well :). I'm wondering about the options to make it, as light as possible.
Please feel free to suggest tags here, if I'm missing anything or I...
My apologies if the question is in the wrong forum or section.
Anyway, I'm a mechanical engineer with 2 years of work experience and have just recently moved to a new company. And just like in my previous job, fatigue seems to be kicking in.
The job is basically a mountain of documentation...
Hi there, I'm new to this forum and this is my first post so nice to meet you all!
Since English is my second language, I apologize for some odd sentences.
I'm a 4th year university student and currently has an internship in a Press Shop of a car manufacturer in Thailand. The project has been...
I am unsure whether I am posting in the right place, but was hoping someone could help me out.
I was wondering if anyone knows the shape of the material at the beginning of the manufacturing process of a stub axle, and how the shape will vary depending on the quantity of products being made...
First time post, I appreciate any advice!
I own a small manufacturing company that makes RF connectors and adapters. Our automated machinery makes the connector bodies out of brass, and many of the parts we make have fairly delicate threads or features that are easily damaged when one part...
Hi, people of PF
I'm trying to decide between concentrating on continuum mechanics or design/manufacturing for my master's degree. My goal is to ultimately work in the industry, so design/manufacturing seems to make a lot of sense. However at the same time, continuum mechanics (and physics in...
I've finally narrowed down my career interests to robotics and controls. I have a BS in Mechanical Engineering Technology. I'm looking at a couple different grad programs at a local school:
MSEE with a focus on robotics and controls.
M. Eng. in Mechanical Engineering with a focus on...
In my circuits/active devices course we had to make amplifier designs with various type of transistors (BJT, JFET, MOSFET). In each design the transistor beta parameter played an important role in deciding which resistors to use in the final amplifier circuit. This beta parameter changes widely...
My project involves making a 5 ft*3 ft*4 ft (l*b*h) aluminium/stainless steel sheet metal box at the back of a slow moving pedal vehicle. There is no load on the sheet metal, except from small vibrations from road travel.
My question is: 1. What gauge of sheet metal thickness would be enough...
I'm designing a fixture for quality control and need a few precision holes. Their diameters range from 1/8" to 5/16" and need to be ±0.0002" with a depth of 1/2". I've been looking into EDM hole making and honing, but neither seem to be great for that range of diameters. Anyone know of any other...
I want to ask the shoulders that are used on railway tracks concrete sleepers, should they be forged or ductile cast and why?
If someone can post an article it'll be great.
Thank You for your help and support.
I want to ask which of the cast steels or forged steels provide with better shock absorption?
The component has to be used in the under chassis of heavy trucks in bumpy roads.
Can anyone help me with that?
i want to know how to make a 3D metal box whose length, width, and height i can change.
For example, i have a box of 3 m x 3 m x 3 m. i should be able to extend any dimension by a maximum of 1 meter i.e 4 meter (say). I want to use this to store items whose size is unknown, but the limits of...
Recently I have started a new hobby into RC planes. What I have noticed is extensive use of Carbon composites weight yet sturdy structures.
Now the problem is that these structures seem to be cut (milling/drilling/laser cutting/water jet cutting) from a sheet (or laminates) of carbon...
