☑ At the end of my course students will have created all the parts used in the rowboat mechanism, created the assembly and added motion.
This course is for student interested in mechanisms, mechanical design and 3D Printing. You will create all the 3D parts that make up the rowboat and assemble these parts together into a working prototype. You will learn how to analyze and resolve issues that always come up during the design process such as motion and interference. Mechanism design is all about “give and take” and you will experiment with a variety of alternate design solution. We will use the Siemens Solid Edge 3D CAD software. This download is free to all students and is similar to Solidworks, Blender and Autodesk Inventor.
Introduction , Course Goals and Objective
Overview and Introduction
Getting Started with the Correct Approach
001 - Where to Start?
Creating the Individual 3D Parts for the Rowboat Mechanism
01 - FrameBase - Creating the 3D Model from the Drawing
02 - Connecting Rod - Create the following 3D Model
03 - Slider
04 - Crank
05 - Leg
06 - Thigh
Assembling the Mechanism Together - Open Solid Edge Assembly
01 - FrameBase - this is the first part to drag into your new assembly
02 - Crank - Mate and Align the Crank to the FrameBase
03 - Slider
04 - ConnectingRod
05 - Motion Check by Dragging the Crank
06 - Checking Interference
07 - Thigh - Add and Constrain to the Assembly
08 - Leg
09 - Motion - Add Motor and Test
10 - Add in te Second Thigh
11 - Add in the Second Leg
Creating the 3D CAD Model for the Body
Creating the Arms
13 - Adding in the Body
14 - Extended Slider
15 - Assembling the Body to the Mechanism
16 - Assembling the Arms to the Mechanism
17 - Checking the Motion to Insure Everything Moves Correctly
18 - Design Modifications - Shortening the Legs
19 - Fixing the Interference Problems
Fixing Interference and Improving the Leg Design
20 - Form - Fit - Function - ConnectingRod
21 - Improving the Crank Design
22 - Replacing the Legs
23 - Designing the Boat - Designing in the Context of an Assembly
Oars - Creating the 3D Model
24 - Adding the Oars
25 - Improving the Design - Assembling without Screws
3D Printing the Rowboat
3D Printing the Rowboat
It was very interesting experience. I did some things in Solid Edge earlier but it showed me a couple of smart tricks, so I can do better now.
the concepts are very clear and beneficial. but there are some issues with dimensions of different parts. please correct them so students do not confuse. thank you John Devitry
Autor w trakcie kursu wprowadzał zmiany w modelu, których nie objaśniał w kluczowej, końcowej fazie składania.
It was good but here the software that he used isn't mentioned and I felt like lecture has a chance to explain more about the mechanism and motion; then the alignment of making a boat
A simple course how to use solid edge. And thank to this cousre I understatnd the isue of the solidedge software, it is here to help us create 3D printed parts.
i don't know if i like spasm, (I now recognise that service Vs maintenance can be a discussion / there is a proper use for the adjective plus and the conjunction minus)
It is amazing how to see the workflow from the parts to the assembly and the improvements made after this.
Love this so far!! I really needed practice with assembly! Looking forward to learning how to directly 3d sketch in assembly. There are a few things that are not well explained in this tutorial. Using reference geometry for instance. Assembly symmetry of parts etc...Some of it I was able to figure out on my own but it felt a little ad-hoc to me so I still feel my understanding is not all that strong, but certainly stronger then it was before taking this class.
Everything was really good explained, but the video cuts might be a little bit abrupt. But great work! You doing an awesome job!
This project is part of the Solid Edge Engineering Students Study Guide which I believe has errors. This course clears up issues I had.
