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 due this weeks!!!

1. Constraints Test (Due Tuesday)
Note: Wednesday is the end of the first mid term grading period!
2. Visualization E (Due Wednesday)
3. Oil Pump Assembly (Please Include all 9 parts plus the assembly file) (Due Friday)

Constraints Test
Due Monday, Sept 26- This is the first test. The link will provide you a zipped folder with 10 files and a word document. Use the files to answer the questions on the word document. When you finish, email me the word document by Tuesday!!!!!

Visualization E
Due Wednesday, September 28 - The Visualization E is designed to be a fun and challenging visualization problem. Download the Excel file and open it. You will see a picture with 4 views. The isometric view is to the upper right with letters. The top view is to the upper left. The front view is to the lower left and the right side view is to the lower right. The top, front and right side orthographic views all have numbers on the sufaces. If the arrow points to a line, then that is an edge view of the surface. If the black dot is a circle, then it refers to a surface that is hidden behind other surfaces, like #17 in the right side view. The surfaces of the isometric view is labeled with letters. You are to match the letters with the appropriate number. So since surface 1 in the top view cooresponds with surface A in the isometric view, you would enter "A" in the blue cell 5B.
Once you have finished, please send it to me. Have fun!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Oil Pump Assembly
Due Friday, September 30 - We are now going to put everything together into an assembly. You will need to create a drive constraint to animate the model. If you have corrected any parts or have not turned them in, you must send me those parts as well. If I do not have all the parts, then I will not be able to open the assembly.
