  • The tutorial is about selecting the shaft diameter based on a bearing number in the context of machine design using FreeCAD.
  • It explains that to determine the shaft diameter, you first need to identify the bearing number, such as a spherical roller bearing like 22213 EK.
  • The method discussed involves multiplying the last two digits of the bearing number by 5 to find the bore diameter. In the example, 13 x 5 results in a bore diameter of 65 mm.
  • The tutorial emphasizes the need for using sleeves to mount the bearing properly to avoid compromising its lifespan.
  • The recommended sleeve for the 22213 bearing in this example is AS313G, with an internal diameter of 60 mm, indicating the requirement for a 60 mm shaft diameter to mount the bearing.
