The final project consists of a project task and a theoretical task.

C


The project task:

CAD, including surface modelling (supervisor: Georg Christensen)

A project task within CAD should be related to one or more of the presented topics within Engineering Design and CAD. The list contains: Sheet metal, Product families, Mechanism design, Top down design, Surface design, Mold design or Cad-data exchange. Each team is encouraged to present relevant modeling projects. Emphasis is on product structuring, product modeling, product design or product analysis. Be aware that for some of the areas DTU may have only limited experience with the actual software module - Nonetheless you should consider this as a challenge. In all areas however, Creo litterature for any of the topics is available.

CAM (supervisor: Tomas Benzon)

A project task in CAM includes the CAD modeling of an object, the process planning including the setting up of the manufacturing model (create operations/sequences) and the machining of the object in the workshop. You may choose any object you like (as long as your supervisor agrees. Remember to fill out the Indication of wishes slip and please include your phone number ). Previous objects can be viewed here. Some of them are also exhibited in Building 427 in the aisle.

Three sizes of workpieces are available: 50x120x100 or 100x120x100 or 50x120x200. Together with your supervisor, you will decide a proper size for the project.

The YCM machine allows you to use 8 different milling tools. They are shown here.

You will have a full day in the workshop (from 8 - 16) to do the actual milling. Your time consumption for each sequence can be estimated this way, allowing you to calculate your total time use.

You will be informed by either mail or through Campusnet on which day you will be assigned. You should beforehand stay well prepared and have simulations running smoothly in the CAM module. If trouble arises, don't hesitate to contact your supervisor early, so you don't end up spending the hours in the tool shop fighting the software instead of doing the milling.

The theoretical task

The theoretical task is chosen by lot at the end of the course. You are expected to write 5-10 pages on the subject. You should produce your own examples for applicable illustrations. One of 10 tasks will be relevant for each team: (see the list available at Campusnet).

Deliveries for Course 41816 & 41817: A report in A4 format, containing:

A description of the outcome of the project work both as an argued text, proper figures and as an appendix containing Creo models and drawing(s) (according to ISO/DIN/Danish Standard)
The theoretical task described in a separate chapter (avoid Internet copying!).
The sheet documenting the acceptance of all 10 mandatory exercises. Together with the report a printed out photo of
Your Own Part and a CD must be delivered containing both the report and the models developed by the group. Make sure the report and CD is orderly organized and that the contribution of each author can be identified.
