Course Objectives This course is an introduction to the rapidly growing fields of CAD/CAM systems and aims to develop an understanding of CAD/CAM related problems. The course has four main objectives:
1. Understand the fundamental and advanced concepts in computer graphics and computer-aided design
2. Know the functions of a geometric solid modeler and how to use any particular modeler for modeling an object and the different ways of manipulating it
3. Understand the basics of NC-machine tools, and manual and computerized part programming
4. Learn what is process planning and how to integrate CAD with CAM
Course Description Introduction to CAD, CAM and Computer Graphical Systems, Geometrical Modeling and Databases, Curves, Wire Frame Modeling, Surface and Solid Modeling, Group technology and process planning, Numerical Control Systems and machine tools, Manual part programming: ISO Language, Computerized part programming: APT language and CAM systems, CAD-CAM-CNC Systems Integration, Reverse Engineering, Rapid Prototyping.
Course Outcomes Students will demonstrate:
1. An understanding of computer graphics systems and geometric modeling
2. An understanding of curves and wire frame, surface and solid models
3. An understanding of NC machine tools, CAD-CAM-CNC Systems Integration, reverse engineering, rapid prototyping technologies
4. An ability to write part programs for 2.5 D Milling, drilling and turning cycles manually in the ISO Language system
5. An ability to use a commercial CAD/CAM package including the solid modeling and CAM modules effectively for simple industrial parts to be milled, drilled and turned.
