Due Wednesday, October 12 - This is the last of the Oil Pump Project. Hopefully, you have gotten the picture of the design process. Starting with the design of the parts, followed by putting everything together in an assembly. Followed by rendered pictures that can be used for marketing, a presentation that will provide assembly instructions to the consumer and finally 2D drawing files that will be used in the manufacturing process. I will say that 2D drawing are becoming more obsolete as technology progresses. There is software now that will send the digital information to a computer controlled machine that will write the code to cut the part on a lathe or milling machine. This is called Computer Aided Manufacturing (CAM)

Practice Test B
Due Friday, October 14 - Click on the link and you will find another rather simple picture of a model I want you to construct. It will need to consist of 2 Extrusion features and 2 Hole features. There is obvious symmetry in this model as well, so I expect to see the first extrusion going in both directions. Be careful which plane you start to sketch on. If you choose the wrong plane and surface, it will require 3 Extrusions, which is one too many. Also, when you click the home view on the cube, I want to see the model positioned the same as the picture. There is a 2" diameter hole. I expect you to use the hole feature without a sketch and choose concentricity to locate the position. The top has two holes. You will have to create a sketch for this to include both holes in one hole feature. There is obvious symmetry, so I expect to see no more than 2 dimension in this sketch.
