Description

The overall aim of this module is to enhance the student’s skill, knowledge and competence at producing mechanical models, virtual prototypes, engineering drawings and design documentation.  Students will be introduced to specialist plastic part and mould design modules and will undertake complex surface & solid modelling, stress analysis and motion simulation.

Learning Outcomes

On completion of this module the learner will/should be able to;

1.

Utilise surface modelling techniques in the creation of complex part and product design.

2.

Undertake the design of plastic injection moulded products and carry out basic mould design using specialist 3D mould design module.

3.

Use fused deposition modelling system to create prototype models and describe current rapid prototyping technologies.

4.

Design engineering mechanisms, use physical dynamics to simulate motion in assembly models and undertake basic stress analysis or parts.

5.

Create complex part and assembly models and produce working drawings and documentation necessary to detail design project work.

Teaching and Learning Strategies

In addition to the normal CAD lectures and practical classes, Designers / Engineering Practitioners working in industry will be invited as guest lecturers and site visits companies will be arranged, where possible.

Module Assessment Strategies

Continuous assessment will involve the assessment of all assignments undertaken in class, design project activity completed independently and an end of term in-house assessment test.

Indicative Syllabus

Surface modelling: surface creation tools, surface bodies, surface controls, knitting surfaces, trimming surfaces, moving, deleting, replacing faces, thicken tool.

Plastic Part/Mould Design: Mould design module, shell, draft,  draft analysis, undercut detection; parting lines; shut−off surfaces; parting surfaces; core and cavity creation; mould design detailing.

Rapid Prototyping: Current Rapid Prototype technologies, stereo lithography, fused deposition modelling, laminated object modelling, selective laser sintering, 3D printing,  file formats and production of .stl files, strategies for prototype production, production of FDM prototype models of an engineering mechanism.

Simulation: Velocity and acceleration diagrams, 2D and 3D simulation of mechanisms, physical dynamics, simulation and animation., universal joint, CV joint, bell crank, four−bar linkage, straight line mechanisms, pantograph, geneva wheel, scotch yoke, quick return mechanism, cams, gears, pulleys.

Drawing: Modelling, drawing and detailing of complex mechanical parts, products and design project work, including drawings for plastic products, mould designs, rapid prototypes and mechanisms. File management using Product Data Management (PDM)
