Hello, my name is Alex and i am a student at the Polytechnic University of Bucharest.

I have never used this software before and it is getting very dificult finding what i need.

My industrial design teacher has given me some equation stuff to work, but i never used mathcad.

I have to create in mathcad 2 cylinders that would intersect and after that make some calculations.

The first is vertical and the second should passthrough the first but horizontaly, i've attached a photo, hope this will be usefull.

He explained me that there ar 3 scenarios i need to test, all based on assigning a diferent value to "d".

Please help if can

I don't know what the real needs are, either.

It looks to me as if the graph which is described is the flatprojection/unrolling of the intersection of two orthogonal cylinders of same size. d being some kind of offset. d=r meaning that the axis of the cyliniders intersect and the cylinder intersection collapsed into two ellipses which unroll to two sines. But then, i may be wrong - the formulas I came up with are slightly different from those posted.

Re: Mathcad help :(

Please attach a Mathcad worksheet with what you had tried so far.

What are you after? equations? 2D-plots? 3D-plots?

Re: Mathcad help :(

Hello, thank you for replying so short.

The plot is 2D, i will reply as soon as i can.

I am getting a wrong format error, i am using Mathcad Prime 2.0

I must appologize, i dont know about anything about inserting radical equations.

Regards,

Alex.

Err...no!

1. What is the orientation of your 2nd cylinder? 2. What, exactly is it you are trying to calculate? Your first post suggested a number of discrete values of d. Are you now looking for a plot of y as a function of d?

I'm afraid I'll need a more detailed explanation/better drawings (make them 3D?).

Re: Mathcad help :(

Well, i am trying to calculate y based on the d value, 2d not 3d

The orientation is straight throught the first, like a nail.
