IET 265
Three-Dimensional Modeling (Using SolidWorks)
Winter Quarter 2013
End of Quarter, March 2013

Your Final Projects:

Your Class:

Your Final Project has been graded and an updated Grade Sheet is available at the link below.  Your graded drawings, checklist and evaluations (plus any other work from this quarter) are available in the Box.  I felt the Final Project Presentations were excellent this year, however, you, the evaluators, were a little tougher than I would have been.  To provide a little balance I added 25% on to those scores.

This was an excellent class (students seem to demonstrate more and more capability each quarter) with some very interesting projects reflecting a diverse range of interests.  The toolbar demonstrations were especially well done and I hope informative.  Keep in mind that this website will be active at this address for some time so please refer back to it for reference as you complete your school work and start your careers.  If you have any SolidWorks related questions send me your files and queries and, like usual, I will post a video solution for you. 

I will soon be posting your Final Project images in the Design Gallery below.

The CWU CSWA Hall of Fame website has been updated showing this year's new certificate holders.  If you did not pass and want to take the exam again I will be offering it next quarter during Week 10 in a similar manner as this quarter.  There are 5 available vouchers, please email me if you are interested.

    • Assembly Models.  This is a graded assignment for this week.  On Thursday I want a one paragraph write up (in an appropriate engineering communication format) of what you propose to model per the criteria below and printed before class (points off for printing during class).  The paragraph should include what the assembly model will be called (such as Bar-B-Que, video game controller, socket ratchet handle, conveyor belt, car, bike or similar items), what it is used for, how it works and other descriptions then describe each of the different part components that will be modeled and mated into the assembly.  I will discuss individually with you on Thursday what you would like to model and give you some ideas on how to get started. Assignment details follow: 
      • Design at least 3 unique parts with the expectation of assembling them for the next Design Assignment.  Parts in the assembly, other than the base, must be able to move, rotationally or translationally (like a machine). 
        • Base, one part has to be a base feature to be fixed to the Origin in the assembly.
          • To have a round or rectangular hole(s) or slot(s) or an extruded boss(es) for use as a reference for the insertion of additional parts
          • Hole Wizard holes in the base for mounting to some external structure 
        • Parts1 and 2 (or more)
          • To be inserted on the base or on one of the other parts
          • Must fit into the slots, holes or bosses on the Base as described above
          • Fasteners, connectors, pins and similar items are not appropriate parts for this assignment but can be used. 
          • Include the following features on at least one of the parts above:
              • Fully defined sketches
              • Hole Wizard feature on a part other than the Base

              • Feature using the Slot Sketch Entity on a part
        • Evaluation:
          • A minimum level of complexity is required for each part. 
          • For the sketches of your parts I will be looking for about 24 Sketch Relation groups, Dimensions and Reference Geometry items on your most complex sketch.
          • For the Features of your parts I will be looking for 6 Features or Bodies
          • 3 parts will be considered for full credit, the next 3 parts will be considered for half credit.
          • The combination of sketch elements, features and parts will be added together, divided by 3 for a score with a maximum of 36 points (20% more).  From this score points will be taken off for missed items in the section above or added to for extra effort displayed.
