Week 6:

For the WDE on Monday of Week 7:

-  Out of Class CDP: Complete the assemblies as described in the Week 6 Instructional Video Page for both the Sarrus Mechanism and the Hammer.  This will give you the background needed for creating the assembly for your own FDP.  No new parts will be created this week.
-  In Class CDP: Will be an assembly of the Schmean's Hook and a 3D Sketch driven stainless steel hook.  To prepare for the WDE on Monday,  make certain the Schmean's Hook part is correct per the drawing in the Week 2 section above.  We will design the steel hook, and create the assembly in class
-  FDP: Work on modeling more parts - 5 total for this week - with 6 features on average - 1 assembly.  Parts will include a Rib feature, an embossed or debossed feature with Sketch Text and, for extra credit, a part with a Design Table.  For more information - see the videos on the Week 6 Instructional Video Page

All files submitted for your WDE for Monday will be "Pack and Go" zip files of your four assemblies due this week including the Out of Class Projects (Hammer and Sarrus Mechanism), your FDP assembly file and your In Class Project assembly file (Schmean's Hook Base and Stainless Steel Wire) that we will work on during class time on Monday.  No credit will be given for assemblies that can not be opened (please check what you send).  View the "Pack and Go" video on the Week 6 Instructional Video Page.

More information and the Week 6 WDE checklist will be posted soon.
