Computer-Aided Design MAE 52 University of California, Irvine Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering Spring Quarter 2007 Instructor: Jeff Norton, Ph.D. [email protected] TA’s: Leyla Esfandiari [email protected] Mina Rohani [email protected] Ezra Lee [email protected] Thomas Ihde [email protected] Lectures Tuesday, Thursday, 5:30 – 6:50 pm, SSPA 1100 Labs All labs are in ECT 123 (Engineering Computing Trailer). Mon 8-10, Mon 5-7, Wed 8-10, Wed 5-7, Fri 11-1 Open times – (both in ECT 123 and EG 3151 – see the signs posted on doors) Office hours – Tuesdays, 3:30-5:15pm Course info website: Goals: Design is at the heart of engineering, and drafting – the communication of design – is essential to being a good design engineer. The goal of this course is to teach you how to design and draft properly, using standard conventions that are commonly used in industry. Good designers consider how their parts will be manufactured and inspected, so we will also cover a few basic manufacturing and inspection techniques. Good designs are also communicated through proper drafting practices, including proper dimensioning, tolerancing (design for manufacturability), and “GD&T” (geometric dimensioning and tolerancing). The software tool you will learn in this course is Solidworks 2006. Solidworks is a feature-based, parametric 3-dimensional solid modeling design and drafting software that is commonly used at many engineering firms. Many posted engineering jobs require the applicant to be “proficient at Solidworks.” Learning this software may give you a chance at landing a part-time job as a designer in industry while you are in school or possibly even a regular full-time job as a design engineer after you graduate. I expect you to give your best effort in this course. Working engineers definitely use the topics learned in this class. I hope that you will have fun taking this course and learning the software. Below is a list of topics you will learn in this course: 1. Proper drafting practice 2. Design and drafting using Solidworks 2006 3. Design with consideration for manufacturing, inspection techniques, and engineering analysis. 4.
