Create a Rowboat Mechanism Using Siemens Solid Edge
- You will need to know Solid Edge 3D Design and Assembly. You can take my two other Udemy classes in preparation. You will also need to download the free academic version of the SIEMENS Solid Edge Software.
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.
Who this course is for:
- Students with an interest in Mechanical Design. Only students with a good understanding of Solid Edge should take this class. If you are new to 3D and Solid Edge take my introductory classes first.
John Devitry a Research Fellow at the Center of Space Engineering - Utah State University 2015 - 2019. From 2004 – 2015 John taught the introductory classes for Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering at USU while also working as the CAD Administrator at Space Dynamics Laboratory – the research arm of USU.
Over the years John has developed a unique and compelling approach to teaching mechanical engineering and 3D design, introducing the concept of Conceptual Design Blending as a way to facilitate creative thinking with engineering graphics students.
Earlier is his career John worked for 3D Systems, promoting rapid prototyping and rapid tooling technologies visiting hundreds of leading design and manufacturing companies around the world. He holds 3 patents developing the product from concept to market, selling the patent rights to independent investors. John enjoys writing and has published 3 articles in BYU Studies.
