Homework and Classwork:
Homework and classwork will be assigned each week. The classwork is due before you leave class. The homework is due at the start of the next class meeting.
A project will be assigned 5th week. The project will require the use of a rapid prototyping machine. The approximate material cost for the project will be $5-10.
The examinations in this course will consist of a mid-term and a final.
Likely format/questions (please note that this can change):
Mid-term exam (~ 2 hours):
- given a pictorial drawing of a part, create a solid model in Solid Edge
- given a solid model in Solid Edge, create a drawing that shows the 3 principal views
- given a drawing of the three principal views of an object, create a solid model in Solid Edge
Final exam (4 hours):
- given a solid model in Solid Edge, create a fully dimensioned drawing
- given a solid model in Solid Edge (or perhaps a part drawing), create a drawing of the principal views and either a section or auxiliary view
- given the principal views of a part, draw a pictorial view by hand
- given several solid models in Solid Edge, use an assembly drawing to solve an engineering design problem
