I'm new here in this forum and I'm sure you can help me solving a "little" issue!
I'm using VB2008 express on a Windows XP Pro PC.
I have to develop a software able to perform some scientific calculations in the field mechanical engineering; to be more precise, this software must be able to predict the torsional vibration behaviour of crankhsfts and drive-trains.
To build my model I need a library of pre-configured elements (organised in a toolbox), that I can drag&drop in my working area and then link together properly to build the model itself.
Also the load cases and the input data should be organised in a toolbox as pre-configured elements that I can chose and fill-in accordingly.
The application I have in mind is something more complex as a drawing pad. To give you an example of such apps I post the link of the description of a similar software architecture, but developed for acoustic simulations (it is a pdf file)
At pages 20 and 21 you can see the working area of the software with toolbox elements to build the model.
I want to create a software like that.
In the past I have written some code in VB6 to perform engineering calculations, but so far not a real application where the user can build a model starting from the schratch.
I need really a step by step introduction
