Module Author:ANTHONY TANSEY
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 Apply the Design Process to the creation of a basic 3-D solid model.
LO2 Capture design intent and determine where appropriate to select a prismatic or rotary base feature.
LO3 Create suitable 2-D profile definitions for modelling features containing geometric and dimensional constraints.
LO4 Demonstrate three dimensional spatial awareness by orienting /positioning component features on a three dimensional model.
LO5 Produce 3D CAD models using solid modelling software.
LO6 Create & print 2D dimensioned multi view drawings containing appropriately scaled orthographic and isometric pictorial views on an drawing sheet directly from a solid model.
