Automotive Starter Motor Solenoid Design

10/03/2011 3:32 AM

Can any one guide me on the CAD modelling of Automotive Starter motor Solenoid and what are the parameters to be considered for designing Starter motor Solenoid. What are the calculations involved in the design process? Can anyone provide me with the dimensional details of Starter motor Solenoid to produce a 3D CAD model?

Why not determine who makes Automotive starter motor solenoids and steal borrow ask them if they will send you their design? I'm sure they'd be happy to give you the design that they paid someone to create. Maybe you could get a job with them, after you have demonstrated your superior intelligence.

Or, you could buy one and reverse engineer it.

Both seem easier than doing a design from scratch, using the skills you are supposed to have learned in school.

Good luck.

Now you've thrown the poor OP a real curve ball. Chances are, he'll spend lots of time trying to figure out what part of this drawing is the solenoid, only to discover that there is no solenoid in this drawing.

Ah yes, not intentional i assure you. Here goes....

Btw, OP, you cannot model the 3D Magnetic flux of a solenoid. You just have to measure every part and create individual part models, assemble them, ......

Shhhhhhhh.

We're waiting to see if the OP notices it's not there.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't that a ™ number, just above and to the right of #10, directly above the nose cone??

Sorry, wrong part of the image...here is the one you meant...

Doesn't quite follow the normal ™ convention i think. Anyway, (a) this image is available on the web and (b) not much can be done by having this image.

Gets better and better, maybe we will have complete plans of the latest spacecraft soon.

GA. Thanks Lyn. I've only dealt with TSO's when it came to any Mil-spec's

Have you ever heard of PATENT INFRINGEMENT? Or don't you care?

At the chance of starting another big name calling thread here, I might remind you of the numerous issues we have seen here regarding doing business in certain Asian countries.

Did someone just mention patent infringement?

Hay, if can be found on the web it "must be free"? Right?

Otherwise them there lawyers would be knocking on everyone's doors.

Oh wait RIAA is.

Re: Automotive Starter Motor Solenoid Design

Can any one guide me on the CAD modelling of Automotive Starter motor Solenoid and what are the parameters to be considered for designing Starter motor Solenoid.


Yes, someone can do that. But outside of a school setting, why would anyone do so?

What are the calculations involved in the design process?

They are a mix of numerous electrical and mechanical calculations.

Can anyone provide me with the dimensional details of Starter motor Solenoid to produce a 3D CAD model?

Yes. If you sign a non-disclosure agreement, and convince a manufacturer that there is some value to them in your being able to see their drawings, then a manufacturer can provide dimensional details. Most already have 3D CAD models.
