As a welder and steel fabricator... I have seen plenty of young engineers bringin forth plans that are impossible or REALLY UNNECESSARILY COMPLEX to fabricate. (And many of them have refused to take feedback... for some reason.) And since I started to study engineering at university, I have found great amount of value from my practical experience of welding and steel fabrication.

Seriously engineers... Talk to the people making your things. Often there are simple changes you can do that will cut cost and production time, if you'd just bother to talk to us. We don't bite. We might be blunt and few worded, but we aren't mean. We like it when we get to share our experience.

Literally learning these exact concepts in my senior Detail Design course for my aerospace engineering degree at ERAU. Great video! Love the visuals.

3:18 Injection molded tampon applicator. I wonder if he knew what that was when he placed it in the video.

I’m a mechanical engineering student and this semester I’m taking a class called materials and processes, the crazy thing is that just last week we did a lab on this topic of how we can affect metals to improve mechanical properties. We had to put a sample of carbon steel in a furnace and while we were waiting our lab instructor was telling us about the research he did in 3D printing while he was a student and he essentially gave a more generic version of what your said with the fatigue analysis. I just find it so cool that you made a video on this right after I just learned about this in lab.

Hey Brian, I have been with your channel on my other account since you only had around 5 Thousand Subs, and i have to say. it brings a tear to my eye when i see just how far you have come since you were first starting out. and, i just want to say. Keep up the amazing work my friend. you are bringing the beautiful, fascinating, and constantly evolving world of engineering to the masses in a wonderfully innovating way. I support you 100%

Your Fan,

Jonathan L Seig
