Solid Modeling Design

Create a solid model for one of the following case studies listed below (all subsystems/subassemblies are indicative):
Use Solid Works CAD software.

A- Car internal combustion Engine

- Engine head, sparkplug and valve subassembly
- Piston, connecting rod and crankshaft subassembly
- Engine block subassembly


B- Vertical axis wind turbine

- Rotor hub and blades
- Mechanical transmission system
- Mechanical brake and controls
- Electrical generator


C- Industrial Robot

- Manipulation System
- Sensory Devices
- Control System (hydraulic)
- Power Unit

The Solid Modeling Design:

For the modeling exercise, a full assembly model of one of the systems described above is required. It should include traditionally constructed components subdivided into at least three sub-assemblies; other subassemblies and/or components should be included as thought necessary depending on the complexity of the model. The model should represent a real and recognized system.Overall completeness is not expected, on the contrary it is suggested that you aim for a relatively simplistic system but to a high level of detail. All components can be assumed to be machined from solid. Modeling licence to maintain model simplicity is permitted, as far as an appropriate balance between number of parts and part complexity is achieved. This right balance, together with the demonstration of the use of SolidWorks functionality is the significant part of the assessment of the model. As an example, from the subassemblies) are expected to be dimensionally accurate and show an advanced level of detail. In particular it is important that you make use of, at least in these parts, a wide range of modelling techniques from SolidWorks to create the model. Dimensional accuracy should be backed up by the submission of all source/core data used fully and properly referenced.
