Description

To provide students with a foundation in basic 3D modelling.

Learning Outcomes

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

1.

Successfully navigate the Solidworks interface.

2.

Create basic 3D geometry in part

3.

Create assemblies using basic parts.

Teaching and Learning Strategies

Facilities required are CAD/multimedia computer lab with 3d modeling software (Solidworks or equivalent software) and the Adobe creative suite installed

Module Assessment Strategies

Assessment of class exercises and CAD elements of Design 1 Projectwork

Repeat Assessments

On failing the module, the learner will be required to complete a project based repeat assessment.

A Project brief will be issued in which the varying details of the project will be set out and the

project will be submitted digitally or by mail to the lecturer or the exams office.

Indicative Syllabus

Introduction to the software interface and navigation system.

Create and clearly define basic 2D sketches

Use the basic commands to create 3D geometry (extrude, cut, rotate, sweep and loft)

Use history tree to modify existing geometry.

Learn to manipulate sketches (pattern, convert, mirror, offset)

Create assembly of existing parts

SOLIDWORKS 2018: A Power Guide for Beginners and Intermediate User textbook is designed for instructor-led courses as well as for self-paced learning. It is intended to help engineers and designers interested in learning SOLIDWORKS for creating 3D mechanical design. This textbook is a great help for new SOLIDWORKS users and a great teaching aid in classroom training. This textbook consists of 14 chapters, total 782 pages covering major environments of SOLIDWORKS: Sketching environment, Part modeling environment, Assembly environment, and Drawing environment, which teach you how to use the SOLIDWORKS mechanical design software to build parametric models and assemblies, and how to make drawings of those parts and assemblies. This textbook also includes a chapter on creating multiple configurations of a design. This textbook not only focuses on the usages of the tools/commands of SOLIDWORKS but also on the concept of design. Every chapter of this textbook contains tutorials which instruct users how things can be done in SOLIDWORKS step by step. Moreover, every chapter ends with hands-on test drives which allow users to experience themselves the ease-of-use and powerful capabilities of SOLIDWORKS. Table of Contents: Chapter 1. Introduction to SOLIDWORKS Chapter 2. Drawing Sketches with SOLIDWORKS Chapter 3. Editing and Modifying Sketches Chapter 4. Applying Geometric Relations and Dimensions Chapter 5. Creating First/Base Feature of Solid Models Chapter 6. Creating Reference Geometries Chapter 7. Advanced Modeling - I Chapter 8. Advanced Modeling - II Chapter 9. Patterning and Mirroring Chapter 10. Advanced Modeling - III Chapter 11. Working with Configurations Chapter 12. Working with Assemblies - I Chapter 13. Working with Assemblies - II Chapter 14. Working with Drawings Main Features of the Textbook Comprehensive coverage of tools Step-by-step real-world tutorials with every chapter Hands-on test drives to enhance the skills at the end of every chapter Additional notes and tips Customized content for faculty (PowerPoint Presentations) Free learning resources for faculty and students Additional student and faculty projects Technical support for the book by contacting info@cadartifex.com
