(Created 2011-09-01.)
Credits: 7,5. Grading scale: TH. Cycle: G2 (First Cycle). Main field: Technology. Language of instruction: The course will be given in Swedish. Alternative for: M3. Optional for: I4, MD4. Course coordinator: Carin Andersson, and Jinming Zhou,, Productions and Materials Engineering. Recommended prerequisits: MMK010 Manual and Computer Aided Drafting in Mechanical Engineering, FMAA01/FMAA05 Calculus in one Variable. The number of participants is limited to 90 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. Home page:

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.

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.
