The Class

Your Final Projects have been graded and your final grades posted at the Grade Sheet link below.  Most students did very well on their Final Projects and, just like the CSWA exam, this boosted many of your final grades.  Check the Grade Sheet link below. 

Images and videos from your Final Projects will be posted soon in the Final Section below. 

Your drawings, PFFs and ECLs will be in the box in the lab for a few weeks and again Fall Quarter.  Let me know if you would like to acquire these via other arrangements.

I have been approached about a few other SolidWorks related jobs at: Amtech in Wapto and one in northern California: WaneShear

Your CSWA certificates can be found at CWU's CSWA Hall of Fame.  Now that everyone has a CSWA certificate use this as a tool in your job search.  This certificate is the best indicator available on how well you know how to model using SolidWorks.  You can now compare yourself to anyone in the world!  Next stop, the CSWP!

    Out of Class Design Assignment details:
    • Assembly Models.  On Wednesday we will discuss what you propose to model or this project per the detailed criteria below.  You need to explain what you will call your model (such as Bar-B-Que, video game controller, socket ratchet handle, conveyor belt, car, bike or similar items), what it is to be used for, how it will work then describe each of the different part components and how they will interact with the assembly.  We will discuss these ideas as a class and I will provide some guidance on how to get started using various modeling techniques.  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).  Think of the Sarrus Mechanism. 
        • Parts (3 total including the Base), include the usual criteria for evaluation 
          • 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 
          • Parts2 and 3 (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:
              • Hole Wizard feature on a part other than the Base
              • Linear or circular pattern
              • Include a Fastener from the Toolbox in the Design Library into your assembly, in more than one location, properly mated.
              • 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.
            • Fully defined sketches
          • 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 partial credit.
          • The combination of sketch elements, features and parts will be added together, divided by 3 for a score of 30 points (a maximum of 36 points with extra credit (20% more)).  From this score points will be taken off for missed items in this section or added for the extra effort demonstrated.
    • ED Book
      • Complete the Rod and Guide in Lesson 1
        • Insert a cosmetic thread, of the appropriate size, on both the front and back holes of the Rod.
