ENGT 244 Mechanical Design With Inventor

4 credits
An introductory course using feature-based, parametric, software. Students will learn and apply parametric solid modeling techniques to create welded structures, cast metal and machined parts, sheet metal and plastic parts working from engineering sketches and/or prototypes.

Prerequisites: ENGT 131  or instructor permission.

Student Outcomes/Competencies:
Upon successful completion of this course students will be able to:

  • Demonstrate the use of sketch planes, sketches, dimensions, and basic feature creations in Inventor
  • Show proficiency in application of solid modeling commands to create three dimensional, parametric, and engineering models
  • Apply assembly mating techniques
  • Create 3D sheet metal parts, drawings, and flat patterns
  • Create 3D models of weldments, machined parts, and corresponding drawing package
  • Demonstrate ability to create drawings with multiple views including sections from solid models
  • Demonstrate ability to dimension machined parts, weldments, and sheet metal parts to ASME standards
  • Demonstrate ability to create assemblies to include sheet metal parts and weldments, combined with individual parts and parts from libraries
