Assessment: Continuous assessment during the line of the course consisting of hand-in exercises and guest lectures. At the end of the course there is a compulsory computer modelling test and an optional written examination. If a student doesn´t pass the computer modelling test a new opportunity is given directly after the first occasion.
Further information: The student needs a computer identity to be able to work with the computer software used for the compulsory assignments.

|COMPUTER AIDED DESIGN/COMPUTER AIDED MANUFACTURING||MMT160|
One aim of the course is to give the student a wide perspective of the potential of available computer tools/support for engineers working with product data documentation and process engineering. Another aim is to provde the student with necessary knowledge to become an advanced users of the solid modelling software Pro/ENGINEER.
Knowledge and understanding
For a passing grade the student must
- be able to identify the components that together build up a computer based engieering support.
- be able to understand the potential of a three dimensional solid model and to utilize this in different applications and for different purposes in an enterprise.
- be able to identify and discuss concepts and functions within the field of subject at such a depth that the student can formulate the criterias for development or investment in computer based engineering support.
- be able to orally describe and present an arbitrary sub-area within the field of subject.
Skills and abilities
For a passing grade the student must
- be able to create advanced solid models with the software Pro/ENGINEER.
- be able to use the assembly, manufacturing, sheet metal and mould modules in Pro/ENGINEER and also be able to use the animation and rendering functions.
- be able to execute a simple production planning where the solid geometry information is used to create NC tool paths and the machine set-up data is determined.
The theoretical part of the course deals with the different components and functions within the sub-areas computer aided design CAD, computer aided manufacturing CAM and computer aided engineering CAE. The content embodies equipment for CAD/CAM, basic CAD and CAM techniques, generating and manipulating assemblies, curves and surface description, solid modelling (different representation forms), transformations, projections, rendering, visualization, rapid prototyping, product data management (PDM) and product lifecycle management (PLM).
During the practical part of the course the student work independently with hand-in exercises that are solved with the commercial software Pro/ENGINEER. The practical work involves working with various modules in Pro/ENGINEER and include surface and solid modelling, assembling parts into a product, making drawings, simulation of movement and performing an animation, sheet metal forming, process planning for manufacturing and developing tools for moulding. The process planning work is emanating in NC code for a multi operations machine used to manufacture the modelled part.
