Project 4 – Extrude and Revolve Features
Project Objective

Create four components of the flashlight. Create the BATTERY, BATTERY PLATE, LENS and BULB components.
Project Situation

You are employed by a company that specializes in providing promotional trade show products. Your company is expecting a sales order for 100,000 flashlights with a potential for 500,000 units next year. Prototype drawings of the flashlight are required in three weeks. You are the design engineer responsible for the project. You contact the customer to discuss design options and product specifications. The customer informs you that the flashlights will be used in an international marketing promotional campaign. Key customer requirements: • • Inexpensive reliable flashlight. Available advertising space of 10 square inches, 64.5 square centimeters. Light weight semi indestructible body. Self standing with a handle.

• •

Figure 4.1 Your company’s standard product line does not address the above key customer requirements. The customer made it clear that there is no room for negotiation on the key product requirements.

You contact the salesperson and obtain additional information on the customer and product. This is a very valuable customer with a long history of last minute product changes. The job has high visibility with great future potential. In a design review meeting, you present a conceptional sketch. Your colleagues review the sketch. The team’s consensus is to proceed with the conceptual design, Figure 4.1. The first key design decision is the battery. The battery type will directly affect the flashlight body size, bulb intensity, case structure integrity, weight, manufacturing complexity and cost.

Extrude and Revolve Features

Engineering Design with SolidWorks

You review two potential battery options: • • A single 6-volt lantern battery. Four 1.5 volt D cell batteries.

The two options affect the product design and specification. Think about it. A single 6-volt lantern battery is approximately 25% higher in cost and 35% more in weight. The 6-volt lantern battery does provide higher current capabilities and longer battery life. A special battery holder is required to incorporate the four 1.5 volt D cell configuration. This would directly add to the cost and design time of the flashlight, Figure 4.2.

Figure 4.2

Time is critical. For the prototype, you decide to use a standard 6-volt lantern battery. This eliminates the requirement to design and procure a special battery holder. However, you envision the 4-D cell battery model for the next product revision. You design the flashlight to accommodate both battery design options.
