An online community for mechanical engineering – KITUNIT

The new go-to resource for CAD designs – speed up your project.

Chances are you’ve already read a lot about digital engineering in our blog entries on digitalisation in mechanical engineering. After all, having the option to carry out 3D engineering work directly in your Internet browser using free software such as the item Engineeringtool offers numerous benefits. In next to no time, you can put together designs using any device with an Internet connection. What’s more, globally unique project numbers mean that the item take on digital engineering is ready-made for closer collaboration. Sharing designs with colleagues and customers the world over at any time is no problem at all. Now item is taking things a step further. The corporate startup KITUNIT has launched a whole new mechanical engineering community on the World Wide Web, where engineers can share their know-how and help each other out. The new collaboration platform is based around two key pillars – a forum area where questions are asked and answered, and an area dedicated to engineering data.

Community for mechanical engineers

Make your projects more efficient! KITUNIT is a place where like-minded mechanical engineers can help each other out with perplexing problems and share 3D templates.

Platform specially designed for engineers

Social networks have forever changed the way we access information and collaborate with each other. Indeed, platforms and networking are even becoming increasingly important in mechanical engineering. Stefan Mostert and Tobias Nentwig, the bright minds behind the KITUNIT mechanical engineering community, felt it was about time engineers were also able to make the most of these benefits. “There’s a community of designers and engineers out there who are coming under growing pressure and are having to meet tight deadlines. They have to deliver results fast, and we simply want to help,” explains Mostert.

Everyone is asking about digital services for mechanical engineering – and here is a sound solution!

The primary source of assistance is a database containing numerous 3D templates. Thanks to this collection, users don’t need to start from scratch on their digital drawing board, searching out each individual part. Instead, they can refer directly to complete solutions. Templates for assemblies can be integrated very easily into in-house CAD programs and many templates feature practical links to the item Engineeringtool. Since all users can upload their own templates, the treasure trove of expertise is constantly growing. Nentwig believes the biggest plus point for the mechanical engineering community is the time factor: “Users are starting out with constructions that have already been tried and tested at a practical level. They can then modify these designs to suit their needs. Before long, they will have saved a good couple of days of work.” Whether they’re being put to practical use or simply serving as inspiration, whichever way you look at it, the 3D templates are a practical tool that make an engineer’s job that bit easier.

A mechanical engineering community thrives on direct participation

The KITUNIT forum gives members the ideal platform for resolving tricky issues related to building with modular kit systems and related topics. If a question attracts multiple answers, all the suggestions are stored, thereby helping build a vibrant library of expertise. At the same time, the questioner can specify which answer is the most helpful. This means that the keenest members of the KITUNIT mechanical engineering community are rewarded and encouraged to share their expertise even more. By contrast, the built-in group function ensures users can keep their discussions private, If they wish, only adding colleagues or direct customers. There is nothing to stand in the way of international networking either, as integrated AI technology translates all content in KITUNIT into English – the number one language of science.
