What is the
difference between idea and the design? “Idea” as per the Oxford’s dictionary
means – plan/ thought. It can be to invent a new product, or a provide a
solution to the problem which is already existing. The idea however is of
virtual nature. To realize it, this idea must be placed on the piece of paper
or documented with feasibility analysis.
Since the coming
of computers and electronics, various digital tools have been developed to
enhance the design experience and process exponentially. When it comes to
product development in mechanical sector, as the prototyping is expensive and a
time-consuming process, it gets necessary to include the use of digital tools/
CAD software to make the process easy and more error free.
One of such software
is Solid works. The product of Dassault Systems, this software gained
popularity in last decade in India, because of increasing awareness among
engineering students. Unlike other software this software has a friendly user
interface and is flexible as per design needs and demands. Thus, it is also acting
as a very efficient tool in terms of design. Most of the MSME companies are
employing this software due to its user friendliness and the hybrid modelling
environment where, you can easily switch between the various tool environment –
surface, sheet metal, weldment, part, sketcher, etc.
In this course
you will get to learn about the basics of solid works. The course starts with getting
you familiar with the sketching module of the software, where you learn about the
basics of sketching and how to use basic geometry shapes and tools to create a
complicated shape and use relations to reduce time. Going to part modeler –
learn about the various 3D commands and tools required to generate a volumetric
shape/ design. Work with various designs at hand to understand how to
efficiently build a model. The assembly modeler will help you create assembly,
understand the concept of plane orientation when it comes to the assembly model
design and mates to use for motion and how to import parts from library. The weldment
is useful for students in creating the roll cage/ tubular space frame for the
vehicle. The drawings module will help you create a drawing and understand the
concept of orientation when it comes to releasing drawing for a product.
