Title: ME170

ME170 Computer Aided Design Summer 2006
Instructor Sean Merklin Graduate Student in
Mechanical Engineering
Course Objectives
  • Learn the fundamentals of engineering
  • Learn to describe the geometry and topology of
    engineered components in standard industry
    formats (ANSI/ISO)
  • Learn to fully define and specify a component, or
    assembly of components, in a mathematically
    robust geometric fully associative database (3D
    CAD or solid model).
  • Learn Parametric Technologys ProEngineer
    (Engineering Design Solid Modeling System)

  • Design a small product or sub-assembly
  • Create
  • Part models for each part
  • Assembly model with exploded views
  • Assembly models with Bill of Materials (BOM)
  • A full set of engineering drawings (including
    dimensional tolerances, geometric tolerance,
    standard limits and fits etc.)
  • Develop and give a computer presentation
  • Write a Design Project report
