Course DescriptionProvides information on the Pro/Engineer Interface, command structure and solid modeling. Develops knowledge and skills in the creation and detailing of solid models.
Intended Outcomes for the courseThe student will be able to:
- Sketch two-dimensional profiles to generate three-dimensional solid models.
- Create features such as holes, cuts, extrusions, fillets, and chamfers.
- Demonstrate competency with various menus and modification commands.
- Create three-dimensional datum planes using Pro/Engineer software.
- Generate revolved parts, swept features, and blends.
- Develop assemblies of multiple solid models.
- Develop engineering drawings that include assemblies
Outcome Assessment StrategiesIndividual and full class discussion; lab drawing assignments; exams; and final project deliverables may be used to assess outcomes.
