Overview of Assessment

Assessment is on-going throughout the course. Assessment will incorporate a range of methods to assess performance and the application of knowledge and skills and will include:

 

Assessment 1 consist of an assignment and quiz

Assignment - project & Quiz

The purpose of this assessment is to learn to produce 3D models within required tolerances and technical documentation.

You are to take measurements of the provided compass and model it as an assembly in CAD (Solidworks) – make sure that you do this as accurately and efficiently as possible. You are also to produce tech drawings for the final assembly and all of the individual parts – the drawings are to include isometric views, the assembly drawings are to include an exploded view and a bill of materials.

 

Assessment 2

The purpose of this assessment is to learn to produce 3D models within required tolerances and technical documentation.

You are to select an existing product with a minimum of 4 unique parts, you are to take measurements of the chosen object and model it as an assembly in CAD (Solidworks) – make sure that you do this as accurately and efficiently as possible. You are also to produce tech drawings for the final assembly and all of the individual parts – the drawings are to include isometric views, the assembly drawings are to include an exploded view and a bill of materials.

You are to aim for a tolerance of ±0.2mm
