Content and learning outcomes

Course contents

Exercises are carried out in groups of 3-4 students. One individual project, to be discussed in groups of students.

The course comprises the following five tasks:

A Surface modeling, from sketch to computer model

B Solid modeling, from surface model to solid model

C Manufacturing of a physical model, from the CAD-solid model

D Animation of the computer model

E Reporting with model, poster and oral presentation

Intended learning outcomes

After finalising of this course, students should have been given training in:

  • Problem formulation and search for solutions by means of model based methods and modern computer tools;
  • Transfer of hand-drawn sketches into surface and solid model computer geometry models, during early phases of design;
  • Active use of surface modeling as a tool for sketching;
  • Transfer of surface models into solid models, in Solid Edge, as a basis for rapid manufacturing of physical models, e.g. by milling in 5-axis machine tools;
  • Animation for project presentations, e.g. over the Internet;
  • Final presentation of a product concept by means of poster presentation and computer based presentation;

Oral presentation and discussion of a technical solution, at a seminar with critics
