DSGN06066 2013 CAD for Design 3 (Advanced 3D Part)
This module will cover 3D CAD modelling and techniques. The module will encompass CAD modelling whereby students will be able to operate a 3D parametric solid modelling system to create regular parts and simple assemblies.
On completion of this module the learner will/should be able to;
Produce 3 Dimensional regular parts using a solid modelling system.
Create regular assemblies and part relationships.
Make a 2D drawings using 3D parts and assemblies.
Introduction to creating exploded views
Module Assessment Strategies
The subject will be evaluated by a combination of tutorials, short assignments and projects.
The student will receive instruction in a specific area in the form of a tutorial. This will be followed by shorts assignments and design projects where the student applies the knowledge gained. The semester will conclude whereby the students will present a portifolio of assignments and project work.
Basic part modelling :
Simple 3D assembly and creation and understanding of assembly relationships:
