Learning outcome

The students should: - Have a basic understanding of the design process from idea to 3D-model - Know the commonly used methods for 3D-modeling and variant design - Be able to prepare documentation and 2D machine drawings according to ISO Standard - Be able to evaluate design and material selection with regard to sustainability Skills: - Be able to carry out "Feature-based", parametric modeling - Be able to realize a product as a 3D-model with drawings and documentation - Be able to do simple simulations of the model - Be able to design creative solutions and visualize them - Be able to print a 3D-model with additive manufacturing General competence: - Be able to present and justify choices in the form of reports.

Learning methods and activities

Lectures|Compulsory assignments|Exercises|Guidance Further information: For Flexible engineering education: - The course will mainly be carried out as an online course. - There will be up to 3 seminar days according to plan distributed at the beginning of the semester. Attendance at the seminar days is recommended. - An online course means that all communication between tutor and student is organised through a digital learning platform. For all: - The course requires that the software SolidWorks is used for exercises and assignments (free student version available). For Campus students: - NTNU has limited availability on PCs, so use of own laptop is required (the machine must be suitable for CAD). Compulsory Requirements: - For Campus students there will be up to 3 compulsory seminar days according to plan distributed at the beginning of the semester (provided that large enough rooms are available). - 2 major assignments must be delivered according to plan and approved in order to take the final assignment.

Compulsory assignments
