Module Description:This module aims to enable the student to communicate component part information in a technical situation. The student will be able to create three dimensional CAD models, interrogate a model history tree and subsequently generate two dimensional drawing layouts with geometric dimensions.
Learning Outcomes
On successful completion of this module the learner will be able to:
LO1 Identify component features and relate the steps required to create a basic 3D solid model
LO2 Determine where to select a prismatic or rotary base feature.
LO3 Create suitable profile definitions for modelling features, using geometric and dimensional constraints
LO4 Demonstrate three dimensional spatial awareness by orienting /positioning component features on a three dimensional model
LO5 Produce 2D drawing sheets directly from a solid model or from a 2D profile sketch
LO6 Create 2D dimensioned orthographic views and isometric pictorial views on a drawing sheet directly from a solid model.
LO7 Print drawings with standard title blocks and multiple views correctly scaled
