ETSC 265 Three-Dimensional Modeling
(Using SolidWorks)
Fall Quarter 2017  (updated Saturday 12/09/17)
 
Final course grades are in and posted at the Grade Sheet link below. 

This was a great class with lots of interesting personal design projects.

But the project that was judged to be the best by your fellow students was from Tyce Vu and his GTX3571R Turbo Charger as seen in the image slide show below.  Images of all the projects  can be found in the Gallery and the Final Design Projects section below 

The winner of the Revolved Feature Image Contest is 
Austin Rogers with his "Real Mug" beer mug - image 1 - (with an average of score of 9.00).  Second place is Alazone Smith wth his "Trinity Vase" - image 5 - (with an average of score of 7.71) and third place is Tyce Vu with his "Champagne Glass" - image 6 - (with an average of score of 7.37).  These images with credits are available in the Gallery section below.

Week 1:

Announcements:

Come to the first class of Week 2 prepared by modeling the Class Design Projects listed in this section below.

Link to Wednesday's Power Point Presentation named A Short History of CAD, Computer Aided Design.

Books, Two total maybe, you will also learn about SolidWorks through video tutorials.
 
The Ultimate GD&T Pocket Guide

Available at the bookstore
Engineering Design  Using SolidWorks (maybe)

Available on 
Amazon

d
Getting Started:

Download your SolidWorks software, the SolidWorks Student Edition, check the links and procedures on the Student Resources web page.  Every student enrolled in a SolidWorks course can download a student version of the software for thier own personal use, with limitations of course. 

And as a backup, and for your convenience, the CAD Lab is available everyday except for Saturdays.

This week's videos can be found on the Instructional Video Page in the Week 1 section.  Week 1 means that you need to view, practice and understand these videos before the start of Week2.

Below is a section describing your Class Design Project for this week.  By the beginning of Week 2 have the Week 1 Class Design Project completed and ready to send in.

Think about your Final Design Project, it will serve as your final evaluation for the quarter.  And its a design of your choosing (within reason).  Submit a Final Design Project Proposal at the beginning of class on Wednesdy of Week 2.  Click on the above link for more information.

There will be a Weekly Design Evaluation (WDE) on Wednesday of Week 2 based on Week 1's Instructional Video content and the Class Design Projects listed below.
 

In Class Demonstrations:

Week 2:

On Friday I will return your graded WDEs.  We will also go over the gradesheet and the Oulet Plate model as a step by step exercise. 

By the end of Week 2, you will have viewed and practiced the Instructional Videos available so far and have the Week 2 Class Design Projects completed and ready for evaluation.

A new Hinge Plate drawing has been uploaded have this model ready by your WDE on Wednesday of Week 3.

Week 3:

On Friday we will review our second WDE. 

Most of the class did not do well on the Schmet's Hook project, so we will go over that again in class on Friday.  Also, as a class exercise, I will examine and fix every student file on the hook so I can show you how to use best practices to get the correct mass properties.  This will provide you the opportunity to hand in a corrected model for re-evaluation by Monday's deadline.
