      How does one go about problem solving a mechanism/mechanical device issue without giving away what it’s for
      And how exactly how it would work without giving to much away.
      And how would I go about approaching engineer companies to see if they are able to help with My problem solving mechanism idea without again, giving to much away.

      I have had an idea that I believe would be of interest to a particular industry, having already contacted a company without going into detail, I was asked to submit My ideas via a detailed description, a 3D cad animation and any videos photo’s of a working prototype.
      I was also told that in the case of not being interested and if a similar product does happen come to market, it would purely be of coincidence.
      I ended up not replying or sending any detailed descriptions off.

      I am really lost at this stage, all I’m looking for is for someone/company to be able to help design My mechanism.
      I am a welder and fabricator by profession
      So i am able to fabricate the items Myself if need be, it’s just the mechanism part/s I really need help with.
      Any suggestions.

      I imagine, if you really want useful help, commensurate for what you will be paying, you will need to divest far more than you're comfortable with at some point.
      Find a credible company/contractor, do your homework, and then send them an NDA (nondisclosure agreement).
      Or find a really good engineer to co-found your company with you. One that you trust.

      My 2 cents
