Introduces mechanisms that translate motion and force, including cams, gears, belts/pulleys, and chains/sprockets. Introduces components such as pawls ratchets, linkages, and levers. Covers the creation of drawings for stock (shelf) items and custom designs. Prerequisites: CADD 160 and CADD 175. Audit available.
Intended Outcomes for the course
Upon completion of the course students should be able to:
- Create technical mechanical drawings using kinematics principles.
- Apply ANSI-ASME industry standards in the preparation of technical mechanical drawings.
- Research and apply online resources to identify parts and incorporate them in the preparation of technical mechanical drawings.
- Utilize the Machinery’s Handbook to determine the correct size tolerance for detail parts on technical mechanical drawings.
Outcome Assessment Strategies
- Individual assignments from the required textbook, or additional appropriate sources
- Group projects working together to solve problems.
- Midterm and final exam
