Description

This course enables students to develop basic spatial skill through the use of a solid modelling system. Students develop skills in interpreting and visualising 3D objects in 2D format. They create and assemble solid model representation of machine components and create 2D engineering drawings from solid models. Students develop advanced technical sketching skills to aid communication in engineering design. They are exposed to basic workshop practice techniques and application of the basic skills to undertake a project.

Content

  • Basic spatial skill through the use of a solid modelling system.
  • Interpreting and visualizing 3D objects in 2D format are developed.
  • Solid model representation of machine components.
  • Creating 2D engineering drawings from solid models.
  • Advanced technical sketching skills to aid communication in engineering design.
  • Basic workshop practice techniques and application of the basic skills to undertake a project.

To comply with Occupational Health and Safety regulations, students are required to have basic person protection equipment (PPE) from week 1 which will cost a minimum of $60. Specific requirements are contained in the course outline available through the MECH1110 Blackboard site which students can access after they have enrolled.

Compulsory Requirements

In order to pass this course, each student must complete ALL of the following compulsory requirements:

General Course Requirements:

  • Workshop: Induction Requirement - Students must attend and pass the induction requirements before attending these sessions. - Workshop Induction: Induction to the workshop is compulsory in Week 1. Failure to attend the induction session will block entry to the workshop and therefore prevent completion of MECH1110. As a result of this, enrolments into MECH1110 cannot be accepted once the opportunity to complete the induction sessions in Week 1 has passed. Students must participate in one workshop session per week to complete MECH1110. When an absence is unavoidable and substantiated, students must liaise with the workshop coordinator to swap their session attendance for that week.
