I just now noticed a great list posted by Waikit over at Product Design Hub. Hit the link for details on:
- Free Stock Images
- Persona Collage Creator
- Color Inspiration & Tools
- Portfolio Hosting
- Image Hosting & Sharing
- Salary/Hour Rate Indicators
- Invoicing Tools
- Patents Databases
- Material Databases
- Anthropometric Data
- Survey Tools
There is a pretty good discussion going in their forum.
IDES is a good materials resource I didn’t see on the list which is a great complement to MatWeb.
Comments are welcome in the Form Loves Function Discussions Forum.
I have a few ideas for posts and topics of discussion and I’d like to know what would be most valuable to you. Most of my input will focused on practical applications in product design and development but I’m open to other ideas.
Here’s what I’m thinking:
- Tolerance analysis and datum selection
- Design and evaluation of assembly constraints
- Designing thermal systems
- Stress analysis
- CAD modeling techniques
Please post a comment with anything else you think might start an interesting discussion.
