Sixth Week Overview
Assignments due from previous weeks!!!
1. Constraints Test (Due Tuesday)
2. Visualization E (Due Wednesday)
3. Oil Pump Assembly (Please Include all 9 parts plus the assembly file) (Due Friday)
I have entered all grades into Renweb. You should be able to login and
see your grades. The averaging is close but not completely correct yet. Missing
assignments will be calculated as a "0', but right now, it is not including them
in the calculations, which is inflating the grades.
Assignments due this weeks!!!
1. Oil Pump Studio with 2 pictures(Due Tuesday)
2. Oil Pump Presentation (Due Thursday)
3. Oil Pump Drawings - (Due by the following Wednesday)
Oil Pump Studio
Due Tuesday, October 4 - This assignment will focus on the marketing aspects of this project.
We are going to go into Inventor Studio to create some quality pictures that could be used for marketing. The Studio also
has the ability to create interesting animations and movies that can be used for marketing, but we will address thosse features
later. This video is from an earlier version of Inventor, so there may be some minor differences. I do want to emphasis
that the video for this assignment is designed to provide guidelines to the process, but you are free to use your
imagination to create the most interesting pictures you can. I will be looking for at least 3 pictures,
but you can always provide more. You will only need to turn in the pictures.
Oil Pump Presentation
Due Friday, October 7 - I know everyone has purchased items that require assembly. Usually, the
directions are in the form of printed material. In this assignment, we will create a video to show how the model
would be assembled. The video will provide some guidelines, but you are free to use your imagination to create the
most interesting presentation you can. Provided you have not made any changes to the assembly and parts, it is only necessary
to turn in the presentation file that has a prefix of .ipn
Oil Pump Drawings Views
Oil Pump Drawings Annotations
Due the following Wednesday, October 12 - In the past, virtually all drawings were in the form of 2D orthographic, section
and detailed views. But with the technology today, it is more practical to create the 3D models and generate the views from
the models. In this way, any change to the model will immediately be reflected in the drawing. This assignment will consist of
creating 5 sheets. Sheet one will be a colored picture of the assembly. Sheet will be a colored picture of the exploded view
generated by the presentation model. The next three sheets will be of the base, frame and crossbeam. It is not necessary to
create drawings for the other parts, as the file starts to get very large, making it difficult to submit. Providing you have
not made any changes to the parts, assembly or presentation, you only need to submit the drawing file that has a prefix of .idw.
