It's nice to see someone bother to spend some time to do actual packaging!

Hey everyone, so while stitching part time i have also been at university studying electronic and electrical engineering, currently in my final year which means Honours Project dissertation woo.

For my dissertation i am designing and building a automatic cutting machine for webbing etc. The features as of writing this is as follows:
Automatic feeding of up to 5" wide material/materials
steady Temperature controlled Hot knife cutting
user selectable cutting temperature
Accurate Cutting to specified lengths (currently increments of 5mm)
Quantity of cuts to 9999
Easy user interface
Cut from user provided file ( see Below)

as well as the above the aim is to make it as small and also as cheap as possible without jeopardizing function or durability.

The final features is to allow the user to create a simple file that has all the cuts for a product place it on a USB, insert into the machine and be able to cut the lengths on the file to the quantity inputted on the machine. this was with a product with multiple lengths in mind like a chest rig to make setting up a production run of cutting simpler and as the files will be incredible tiny

i was wondering if there is any features you guys like or would like in an automatic cutter or any considerations to take into account, If any of you are interested in the progress i can keep you all updated.

Thanks in advance for any input

Platforms / Modular Gun Belt Prototype
« on: October 19, 2017, 07:40:42 PM »
This is an amalgamated design from our Renegade Belt, which was a standard rigger's belt, and elements of the previous belt system. Two belt system, although there is only one belt shown. Same concept as a some others on the market, but instead of folded 1" webbing tacked on for reduced width PALS, we are using laser cut Cordura laminate, in this case, Whiskey Two-Four's ACRONYM material. The design of the slots enables the user to weave MOLLE accessories on using the top and bottom narrow sections, or attach directly to the larger centre section. Instead of using regular Hook along the inside, we're testing out a hook/loop hybrid that will grab either. So far it's working quite well.

Concept, design, and engineering / PALS Strap

This is my idea for a low profile PALS strap that can be added to any webbing backed pouch. What do you guys think? Thanks to mogensbeck for helping with these!
