The videos below are for instructional purposes and are not to be distributed to others. The videos run better if you save them to your computer first. Right click on each link and choose "Save Target As". During this course the videos will be updated periodically, especially if a mistake is pointed out to me, so it is best to download only a few at a time.

Assignments

Assignments due this weeks!!!

1. Visualization B (Due Monday)
2. Practice Test 1 (Due Tuesday)
3. Oil Pump Handle, 3 Pins and Connecting Rod (These 5 parts are all Due Friday)


Visualization B
Due Monday, Sept 19 - The Visualization B consist of four targets (Left, Front, Back and Right). On the right side of each is a rectangular cut out portion. On the top is a counterbore hole. The position of the hole will identify the answer. If the counterbore hole is shifted to the Left side, then the answer would be L, etc. The hole does go all the way through, but on the bottom, you will only see one ellipse for the hole. In your mind, you have to rotate them to determine where the top and right side surface is and to which side the counterbore hole is shifted.. In the blue cells of the spreadsheet, enter the answers, L, F, B, R..
Once you have finished, please send it to me. Have fun!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Practice Test 1
Due Tuesday, Sept 20 - This is another practice test. There is no video associated with this assignment. I want to see how well you can do on your own and to prepare you for a future test.The link will provide you a picture of a part that you are to design. It will require two extrusion features, a hole feature and a chamfer feature. You can start from the top or the front view. I will let you choose that. However, when you go to the home view, I want it oriented exactly like the picture with the tall vertical back positioned to the upper left. I also want the hole to be positioned at the origin. The two arms on the lower right clearly show symmetry. Therefore, I will be looking for use of the symmetry constraint in one of the sketches. The hole can be created in one of the two extrusions, but I want you to use the hole feature. Therefore do not include it in an extrusion. The chamfer is the 45 degree angled surface on the vertical back. If you click on the drop down arrow by the fillet, you will find the chamfer tool. Just set the distance and select the edge and the chamfer feature will be done.
