Early February, a phone called was received from Neco Systems, Inc seeking assistance with a custom duplex pump skid. Given the prebuilt machine’s size, fabricators would have to deconstruct for installation in its’ proposed space. Our task was to create construction drawings of the prebuilt machine which indicate the proposed sub assembilies. Overall, we helped the installers dissassembly, transport and reassemble the skid into a New York City School Building.
Our team worked to reverse engineer the project since the fabrication drawings were unavailible. The only available resources were two pictures, a parts list and rough schematics. In order to create construction drawings we utilized SolidWorks software to model the parts and create sub assemblies. Our team problem solved to design every pipe by referencing our few resources. As problems solvers, we resolved obstacles by combining our teams knowledge of piping systems. Then, Mr. O’ Connor stepped up and assembled a three dimensional model replicating the pictures. Once assembled, he was able to produce accurate construction drawings and sub assemblies. The best part is Neco Systems satisfaction with our results.
