Salah satu feature paling penting di CMS IntelliCAD adalah IntelliCAD Explorer. Melalui IntelliCAD Explorer kita bisa mengatur berbagai feature dan setting dari gambar kita antara lain: layers, linetypes, text styles, dimension styles, blocks, dll. Tutorial ini menjelaskan filosofi dan cara menggunakan salah satu feature di dalam IntelliCAD Explorer yaitu Attach Drawing.
Attach Drawing berfungsi untuk melampirkan gambar dari file eksternal ke dalam file kerja. Di dalam file kerja, lampiran ini akan diperlakukan seperti block. Contohnya seperti berikut ini:

VariCAD now officially supports the Faculty of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering, Institut Teknologi Bandung (FMAE-ITB), one of the finest engineering school in South East Asia. All staffs and students in FMAE-ITB are elligible to use the latest version of VariCAD to support their study and research activities in ITB.
VariCAD is 3D/2D CAD system primarily intended for mechanical engineering design. It delivers an excellent performance-to-price ratio, making it one of the best choices in the market today. Go to our VariCAD page to learn more about this software.
We hope this partnership will produce better generation of engineers and academicians in the future. Contact us to learn more about how to get the license.
We would like to introduce LIMOV Semeru 35T, the newest state-of-the-art design from LIMOV. This gantry-type pull-test machine was delivered to PT Satoil Oilfield Services, Indonesia and commissioned at the end of 2008.
LIMOV Semeru is a statement of our commitment to continuously innovate and explore all the possibilities. It features the distinctive “Twin-boom Lifting System” which is the first in the world.
Semeru is named after Mount Semeru, the highest and one of the most powerful volcanoes in Java island, Indonesia. Take a look around LIMOV Semeru’s page to learn more about this machine.
Dear customers and partners, greeting from LIMOV. We wish you a happy and peaceful 2009. May all your hopes and dreams come true. Thank you for all your trust and support.
One way to learn design is to observe existing products. By critically observing a design and paying attention to its details, we can trace back the reason for decision making behind the design. My favorite product of structural design is: excavator. It is the cream of structural design. Most of today excavators still carry the legacy of old-school designers who have strong engineering intuition. Their structural details are simple and straightforward yet elegant. Their shapes are balance between strength, functionality, ergonomics, and ease of fabrication.
Komatsu PC 2000
Let’s see one example shown in Figure 1 below: Komatsu PC 2000. This picture was snapped on October 2007 in Kemayoran, Jakarta. It shows the PC 2000 in action. Since I am only interested in its superstructure, I only took some pictures beneath the upper machine (Figure 2, 3, and 4).

Besides all the knowledge and experience, we also need inspiration to motivate our spirit and drive us forward. When it comes to inspiration, I would like to introduce you to one of the greatest inspirations for me: Isambard Kingdom Brunel (1806-1859). The most genius structural designer, engineer, and project manager in heavy construction. The most intense man in the business. He smoked 40 cigars per day and slept 4 hours per day. His designs were years ahead of their time.

Once in a while we come across something which is guaranteed to fail before it even exists. It means: wrong design. This is the story of an ill-fated shaft. It happened in 2006. The shaft was driven by a gearbox. It was a shiny brand-new shaft and it failed after only 7 days in service. The remains are shown in Figure 1 below. Why did it fail?
