MET-161 - Solid Modeling for Mechanical Design 1

3 credits

This course is a continuation of Engineering Graphics with SolidWorks. The beginning of the course includes orthographic projection, sectioning, and assembly drawings emphasizing the ASME Y14.3 standard. The course continues with learning the fundamentals of ASME Y14.5 including dimensioning, tolerancing of mating parts using standard ANSI fits, and geometric tolerances. Projects are assigned to present the concepts of mechanical design principles using the CAD system. Both inch and metric applications are used. Students are required to analyze design concepts and comment on their feasibility.

Prerequisite(s): MET-160 (C or better; must have completed within last two years or with permission of instructor).

Corequisite(s): MET 161L
