This course is for student interested in mechanisms, mechanical design and 3D Printing. You will create all the 3D parts that make up the rowboat and assemble these parts together into a working prototype. You will learn how to analyze and resolve issues that always come up during the design process such as motion and interference. Mechanism design is all about “give and take” and you will experiment with a variety of alternate design solution. We will use the Siemens Solid Edge 3D CAD software. This download is free to all students and is similar to Solidworks, Blender and Autodesk Inventor.
- At the end of my course students will have created all the parts used in the rowboat mechanism, created the assembly and added motion.
