Mechanical Engineering: Problem Solving, Modeling, and Prototyping

Problem solving, modeling and prototyping walks engineering students through various ways to find and design around potential design challenges. We'll explore how to use Fusion 360 to help find things like load paths on a structural design. We also learn modeling techniques and design strategies to further design the components of the mechanical drive system on a bicycle. Last, we'll have opportunity to discuss and explore options for their designs such as gear driven vs belt vs chain. 

After completing this course, you'll be able to:

  • Understand the parametric CAD workflow.
  • Articulate the difference between a Body and a Component.
  • Use Shape Generation to identify load paths.
  • Detail components for production techniques.
  • Create a detailed drawing.

@John Kennedy - Please verify that all steps within each lesson are marked green. This needs to be truth in all lessons, including next steps and getting started, in order to complete the course. The next steps and getting started steps are the mostly likely to be marked as incomplete.
IVE COMPLETED THE COURSE ALL THE WAY THROUGH AND IT STILL SAY 85% WHAT SHOULD I DO
Loved the course
