5 Tech 106: 3-D Solid Modeling and Constraints Last Week Switched mode to focus on ideas, tools, and design issues related to the course project, the AMT (Animated Mechanical Toy). In the first phase, the objective was to translate your design ideas into sketches : Mechanical Box, Figure, etc. Idea Sketch

6 Tech 106: 3-D Solid Modeling and Constraints What’s next? Two weeks of digital modeling ; this week and next. Modeling parts; then the “whole”, by assembling the parts, using constraints to perform this process. The week after deals with building the physical model/object. Digital Model Physical Object

7 Tech 106: 3-D Solid Modeling and Constraints Motivation Everything you’ve done so far has had the real 3D model in your head. Remember that what you put on paper (sketches, etc.) is only 2D. It had to be, right? Paper is 2D. There was NO underlying 3D representation of the real object.

8 Tech 106: 3-D Solid Modeling and Constraints Solid Modeling? A true 3-D representation of objects. Typically constructed much like you would the physical object. 3-D Modelers, such as SolidWorks , create 3-D computer-based models of 3-D objects. Integrating computers into the design process (3-D CAD; available since early 1980s). Solid Model of snow ski binding

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
