Leerdoelen At the end of the course, the student is able to:
1.Conceptualize, design and analyse new products, or reverse-engineer and optimize existing ones through group work
2.Use CAD to design individual components and assemblies (Design for Assembly, DFA)
3.Use FEM to analyse product behaviour and validate results through stress-strain analysis, and failure theories;
4.Build a prototype via RP
5.Select and apply CAM tools and methodologies
Omschrijving CAD/CAM is meant to serve as a bridge between the fundamentals learned in previous courses (e.g. “Materials Science and Engineering,” “Mechanics for TBK,” “Production Techniques”), and the comprehensive approach necessary for production management. Knowledge gained in this course will be further enhanced and applied in subsequent courses, including “Design and Construction for TBK” and the “BSc Integration Project.”

An overview of fundamental principles from materials science, mechanics, stresses, machine element design, failure theories, as well as conceptual design and visualization techniques, will be given during lectures, comprising primarily team work in computer laboratories to complete various projects: CAD, FEM, CAE and RP. In addition, the students will learn the principles behind CAM and attend CNC demonstration sessions. Students will work in teams to design, analyse and produce the parts necessary to create a prototype assembly as a final project, or reverse-engineer and reproduce an existing assembly.

Lectures will be interspersed throughout the laboratory sessions to introduce the concepts necessary for the computer projects, including technical drawing and the finite element method. Emphasis will be placed on the validation of FEM results with analytical theory. SolidWorks will be used for all computer laboratory sessions.

Entreevoorwaarden The course unit assumes prior knowledge acquired from preceding courses such as “Materials Science and Engineering,” “Mechanics for TBK” and “Production Techniques,” which are mandatory in the Production Technology and Logistics (PTL) track of Industrial Engineering and Management (IEM) Bachelor. However, the course unit content is structured so that all relevant concepts from earlier courses are re-introduced where necessary, including a series of lectures to review solid mechanics and materials fundamentals.

The course unit serves as a bridge between the prerequisite courses mentioned above and subsequent courses such as “Design and Construction for TBK,” while it also prepares students interested in conducting their Bachelor’s dissertation research on mechanical design and engineering-related topics.
Opmerkingen The student assessment for this course unit is performed on:
-Report (30%).
-Presentation for the final project (5%).
-Practical (60%).
-In-class assignment (5%).
-Students must receive a final grade of at least 5.6 to pass the course with an assigned grade of 6.0.
-No repairs/resits possible in the course
-Individual grades will be adjusted from those of the team based on Self & Peer evaluation
