AutoCAD Through the many AutoCAD classes that I have taken, I have learnedeverything from drawing that first line, to xrefs, to 3-D drawings. Here are just a few examples of what I have previously done.
AutoCadThis is a 3-D drawing I made of a bracket. You can also see the top and side view of the bracket.
AutoCadThis is a cutout of a shaft support that I drew up. From the left, you can see the cutout, the front view, and then the side view.
AutoCad On the right, using proper projection and auxiliary views, the true lengths of lines and sides, as well as true angles can be found of a given building, wall, etc. Below, given any two crossing beams in a view, the proper order can be determined, whether one be on top or bottom, in front or behind, etc.
SolidWorks This is a special bearing which includes almost every part of thebeginnings of solid modeling, including: material definition, cuts, and fillets just to name a few.
SolidWorks The table on the left was used using the “weldments” tool in Solidworks, which as you can see very clearly on the bottom feet of the table, the weld beads holding the feet to the table legs.
SolidWorksIn this top down assembly, I started with just the basic shapeof the level, then using the existing parameters,created the glass tube for the liquid,and the viewing plate, just byusing the top view of the level
SolidWorksThe halyard guide on the left was used by simply starting with the basic line of the outter and inner curves and drafting the surface then mirroring the other half of the part.
SolidWorksIn this 5C collet tray, I designed a simple, economic tray that you couldcarry around with you to hold 8 5C collets for the CNC machine. Iunderstand completely the need to keep them organized, since I havetaken a year of classes using these collets.
SolidWorksThe part assembly you see above is something Jay Braunecker and Idesigned for muscular dystrophy patients. Muscular dystrophy can effectany age of people, but we specifically chose the Becker’s form of MD sinceonly males can get it. Muscular dystrophy is a disease in which muscledeteriorates or gets weaker over time and slows down the movement inthat particular body part.Credits go to 80/20 Inc. for the caster wheels in our project.
SolidWorksThe figure on the left shows everything Ilearned in the first Solidworks class I took.This is an assembly of a shaft support.
SolidWorks This is a project presented by a local business in Bloomington, IN in which people take their ideas,give it to the company, and see what the companycan come up with. The idea came from a game of Spanish decent and is quite popular.
Manual Programming To start off programming, I started writing each program by hand. The diagram onthe left is what we would be given to write the program and the code on the right is what we would have to program. This is not the same program for the drawing.
CAD/CAM PROGRAMMING Through the many different programs that I have programmed, I havemade 2-D programs, which is what you see on the left, to 3-D programs,which is what you see on the right. We were taught how to do different finishes and functions to please the customer.
