I work for a "job shop" where we fabricate steel for different types of jobs, including things from basic handrails to additions to buildings. Is there a written law that all drawings "have" to have work point dimensions?? The drawings I make for the shop are accomidating for our workers. The reason I ask is that I have had 3 sets of prints from two different jobs rejected because I didnt use WP dim. Our fabricators dont use WP dim., they want me to use pitch and rise to put clips on beams that are on a pitch. My dimensions were correct, I just didnt have the WP dim.

Partial Reconfiguration (PR) allows FPGAs to dynamically change modules without disrupting other parts of the design. This paper discusses the use cases of partial reconfiguration as well as considerations when designing partial reconfiguration firmware using the Xilinx Vivado design tool targeting the RFSoC.

With a growing number of parts manufactured directly by additive manufacturing techniques, it is important to lay down design principles suitable for such manufacturing processes and to ensure parts are designed for additive manufacturing. There are several factors that are to be considered at the design stage. Few such design issues in additive manufacturing are discussed in this paper. Download Now
Plastic parts not only need to meet the short-term color and appearance requirements, but also need to be resistant to long term color shift and fading. This paper discusses various points related to aesthetics of plastic parts and what design engineers need to know about science of color and appearance. Download Now
Material, design, tooling and processing are as important as the four wheels of a high performance of a car. Use of simulation tools play an important role as well. This paper also throws light on DFMPro â€“ a design assistant solution. DFMPro provides a rule-based approach to information on direct and indirect aspects of design performance and cost. Download Now
