Facilities Management Equipment

This kind of model isn’t very glamorous, but it covers a lot of disciplines. Larger scale plastic parts are a different world from the delicate smaller parts that I normally work with. Plus, the process and material involved with gas assist or structural foam injection molding has some requirements that can liberate parts of your design, but you need to pay attention. This design involved gears, motion, and stability requirements, as well as packaging and assembly/disassembly, and cleaning. I’ve done a couple different buckets and wringers, and although not glamorous, they are fun to model. Aside from the wringer mechanism on this one, the hard part was putting the volume gradations on the side of the bucket. Liters and gallons.
