On completion of this course, the student will be able to:
- create computer models of 3D mechanical objects with a variety of geometry types and model typical engineering assemblies.
- understand the significance of assembly models to the wider organisation.
- make photorealistic rendered images of 3D assemblies and parts.
- carry out stress/modal analyses and understand the major practical considerations in using integrated FE analysis techniques and how these relate to analytical methods.
- produce high quality documentation in the form of drawings, bills of materials, part lists and advanced 3D illustrations.
