I’m an engineer, but as I’m middle aged I doubt I could be employed these days. I have to come up with some way to make money before my savings run out. So basically, I’m an engineer yet I’m starting from zero.

This blog is about science, technology, innovation, and encouragement.

    Recently found and am thoroughly enjoying your blog as an engineer by background. Elder version currently delving into SketchUp and Arduino.

    I’m amazed at your prolific ability clearly expressing concepts and hope that means something on the financial front.

    Hi Engineer Zero:
    I found your chemical molecule models on 3D Warehouse and followed the link back here to your blog and noticed what you wrote about putting your engineering wisdom to use making money. I know that should you come up with a “quick and dirty” workbook about how to make some of those molecules, I would buy several copies for my middle school class. This is very self-serving on my part but I have been looking for some such book/instructions for several years. How soon could you come up with instructions for two basic molecules ….like water and a dna nucleobase?
    Good luck regardless.
    Much obliged!

    The following is a comment I left at this website: http://goldenbytes.edublogs.org/2009/02/05/google-sketchup-models/

    I, too, am interested in using SketchUp for students to create chemical models to discover the geometry of molecular bonding. However, I have no chemistry background. Has anyone come upon some step by step modeling instructions (with accurate bonding angles, sizes, distances. etc….). I feel if someone could come up with a book of how to create 25 different molecules, schools would gobble it up! Any entrepreneur/chemist/sketchup artists out there? You are needed by the middle school science population.
    Greatly appreciate any leads or help.
    Thank you.

    Hi Engineer Zero,
    I am working on the mobile robot for handling of radioactive material inside Nuclear Power Plant.
    Was worried about how to select motors for the robot, because i heard alot that dc motors don’t work in radiation environment. Your article, ” Robots & Radiation ” is found to be quite helpful for me. If you can give me any more information , i will be thankful to you

      Muneeb, I strongly recommend that the world abandon all efforts in nuclear power. Nuclear power plants are not cost effective, and they are like building doomsday devices which can go off by accident and severely damage their home country, as seen in Chernobyl and Fukushima. If you’re worried about the oil running out someday, you’re far better off buying solar panels, which are now down to just $1 a watt.

    pls mail me materials on how intermodal containers(used in transporting cargo aboard ships) are manufactured. emyaje@gmail.com i am a student and was was assigned to write a project on it but i have found nothing on it online. thank u so much

    Hi! I work with engineering website EEWeb.com and would love to do an exchange of website links and feature you as a site of the day on EEWeb. Let me know if this is of interest to you!

    Hi, I am impressed by the 3D Arduino and breadboard CAD figures created on your website. What software tool did you use?
