A customer had told me the specifications of a game system that was going to be mounted inside commercial aircraft for passengers to use to entertain themselves in the air. He went on and on about all the testing that needed to be done, which all made logical sense to me, but then he informed me that there were regulations to ensure the device could handle temperature swings from -50 to 200 degrees. I’m sure that is great and all, but you know who isn’t going to handle temperature swings of that magnitude? This guy! What good does it do to have the product survive if the passenger does not? So is that what “Over Engineered means?” I don’t think so, seems more like over regulated to me.
There is a certain Hockey Hall of Fame inductee who, were it not for the “Over Engineered” curve on the shaft of my goalie stick, would have scored a hat trick against me, so I am sold on the idea of “Over Engineered.” So to the guy who wrote the review on 3feet, giving it five out of five stars but stated it is “Over Engineered,” I couldn’t agree more. To that effect I would venture to say that anyone who is not using SolidWorks in combination with a Dimension 3D Printer is in fact “Under Engineering” their products.
