Description

Advanced sketching for conceptual product design and communication. Advanced 3D computer-aided drawing and solid modelling, with finite element analysis for strength and durability. Preparation of models for rapid-prototyping (additive manufacture/3D printing).

Learning Outcomes

1. Students will be familiar with industry-standard computer-aided design packages and administrative procedures to plan for, and execute, detailed product design in an efficient, repeatable manner.
2. Students will become proficient at creating designs, manufacturing outputs, and/or programming for subtractive manufacturing techniques.
3. Students will become proficient at creating designs, manufacturing outputs, and/or programming for additive manufacturing techniques.
4. Students will be able to select from, and implement, a variety of advanced digital design tools to aid in the product design process.
5. Students will be able to use simulation tools to assess general structural viability and optimise their designs in response to predicted in-service loading.
6. Students will be able to select from a arrange of advanced design tools such as topology optimisation and generative design to construct and/or optimise high-performance geometries.
7. Students will gain awareness of the cost, scale and practical implications of the techniques employed and assess their viability in future design projects.

Assessment

Major Project Task:

•   Stage One, 20%; Students will work in small design teams (three) to design and prototype a
    functional multi-part structural design using digitally-controlled subtractive manufacturing and
    manual assembly methods. Due: End of week 5.

•   Stage Two, 30%; Students will work in small design teams (three) to design and digitally
    prototype (using Finite Element Analysis) before physically prototyping a functional single-part
    structural design using digitally-controlled additive manufacturing Due: End of week 8.

•   Stage Three, 20%; Students will work in small design teams (three) using advanced
   simulation methods to digitally-define a design (using Topology Optimisation and/or Generative
   design) before physically prototyping a functional single-part structural design using digitally-
   controlled additive manufacturing Due: End of week 12.

•   Final Exam - during exam period : 30%

For each submission, teams will produce a short, explanatory document explaining their design process and rationale, as well as an individual reflection and competency statement.
