EDD 221 - Parametric Modeling 2

Credits: 3
4 Skills Lab Hours

Prerequisites: EDD 135  

This is an advanced course in the development of 3-dimensional engineering design models using AutoDesk Inventor feature-based modeling software. Students will construct part models using advanced modeling tools. The creation of part models will be used to produce fully annotated detail drawings and assembly drawings, assembly models and animated presentation assemblies. The application of design variables to parametric features will be used to automate the design and revision process.

Learning Outcomes
Upon successful completion of the course, the student will:

  1. Construct assembly models from existing parts using assembly constraints.
  2. Place standard fasteners from the content library into an assembly model.
  3. Prepare fully annotated working drawings, including assembly drawings, detail drawings and parts lists.
  4. Create a parametric model using the sweep tool.
  5. Use the Inventor Studio to generate a rendered image of an assembly model.
  6. Create an animated exploded assembly model.
  7. Generate a part model using dimension variables linked to a spreadsheet to control parametric parameters.
  8. Apply decals to parts using the decal tool.
  9. Create embossed and engraved parts.
  10. Apply threads to a hole and a shaft using the thread tool.
  11. Apply tolerance dimensions to mating part models.
