Optics Jobs

Newport CAD Consultant
Author Last Post

Newport is looking for an experienced contractor to generate around 8000 CAD files ( 75% of them are optics and optical tables, which could possibly use a batch process. Previously we estimated roughly 800 Hrs of work). The consultant only needs to generate files in Solidworks – Newport will convert files into other formats as needed.

We are looking for someone to start immediately or up to a few weeks from now (02 November 2018).

Scope of work:

Generate customer-friendly Solidworks 3D models/Auto CAD drawings for roughly 8000 parts, based on our existing 2D engineering drawings (and some of the existing 3D Solidworks files we have). 75% of these parts are optical tables and optics so can easily use configurations to generate (For example, for a family of optical table we have over hundreds of parts with different length/width that can use one base drawing).

The estimated total duration of work is 800 Hrs, however, depending on complexity of parts this number may change.



Experienced with Solidworks drafting

Some knowledge of ZEMAX a plus

Being able to work 20 hours or more a week

The contractor needs to sign NDA and contractor agreements with Newport
