One of the risks of reworking any type of mold — whether it’s vacuum or injection mold or wax injection — is the risk of scraping your original tool. Making sure you've got good information to start is paramount.

Pat Barrett from Sherpa Design and Applied CAx explains from our CMM and programming room a procedure we use to help rework mold tools.

On this particular project we were provided 4 of the same mold cavities and needed to rework them to put in some inserts and add additional features that weren't there before.

Our Teamcenter expert Randy Ellsworth presented on "Delivering Custom Status Icons in Teamcenter" at Siemens PLM Connection 2016 in Orlando, May 16-19.

As custom release status icons have not been incorporated into BMIDE, they must be maintained at the client level. Most companies use a combination of TEM and batch scripting to deliver custom status icons.

A better method is to create a custom ICD that controls the delivery during an Over-the-Web (OTW) installation. If you're a Teamcenter manager looking to implement this method, download the PDF presentation on delivering Custom Status Icons. And click here for more Teamcenter resources.

Sherpa Design recently looked at its current projects and realized that, somewhere along the way, we've become very experienced in thermal optics packaging and engineering. We have 10+ years of thermal optics experience, and our cohesive design team can bring our depth of infrared and thermal design knowledge to help our customers discover and deliver their product innovations.

Perhaps most important for innovators looking to release new products, we can take your product from industrial design concepts to First Article builds. We have relationships with optics manufacturers and with our knowledge of the SEEK core, we provide a surprising cost advantage, giving you a lower barrier to entry and lowering your cost for the consumer thermal market.

In our Mechanical Engineering Project section, Sherpa Design is proud to highlight our work on the JamHub Stage. Promising to shakeup how musicians rehearse, record and perform, the JamHub Stage has been unveiled to the musical retail world for 2016.

The JamHub Stage is touted as the perfect mixer for small spaces like coffee shops and house parties. It's portable, durable, and gives an intuitive way to mix PAs and monitors. Musicians can control their own in-ear monitors, then use the Stage to get sound to the front-of-house.
