An introduction to solid modeling, the engineering design process, and machine shop operations. Students will use SolidWorks software to design parts and assemblies and then fabricate them using mills, lathes, and a 3D printer. Parametric modeling techniques that preserve design intent with dimensioning, geometric relations, external references, equations, and design tables will be emphasized. A design-build project will require students to build a working prototype to the instructor's specifications and then implement a redesign of it. Students will document their design process in both written and oral reports. Three class hours, three laboratory hours.
