How does one go about problem solving a mechanism/mechanical device issue without giving away what it’s for And how exactly how it would work without giving to much away. And how would I go about approaching engineer companies to see if they are able to help with My problem solving mechanism idea without again, giving to much away. I have had an idea that I believe would be of interest to a particular industry, having already contacted a company without going into detail, I was asked to submit My ideas via a detailed description, a 3D cad animation and any videos photo’s of a working prototype. I was also told that in the case of not being interested and if a similar product does happen come to market, it would purely be of coincidence. I ended up not replying or sending any detailed descriptions off. I am really lost at this stage, all I’m looking for is for someone/company to be able to help design My mechanism. I am a welder and fabricator by profession So i am able to fabricate the items Myself if need be, it’s just the mechanism part/s I really need help with. Any suggestions.
