Application of Unit
This unit is suitable for those working within a drafting work environment and may be applied across a range of engineering disciplines. This unit applies to the production of 3-D solid models using CAD modelling software. Operations at this level include, but are not limited to, the creation and manipulation of entities, such as arcs, lines and primitives, such as spheres, cones, cylinders and boxes. It includes the use of region and solid modelling techniques, section views, and pre-drawn library files. Work also includes extraction of properties and application of basic rendering techniques.
This unit includes applications in CAD, computer graphics and animation, rapid prototyping, medical testing and visualisation of scientific research.
Required Skills and Knowledge
Required skills include:
Required knowledge includes:
Assessment is a combination of multiple choice tests, written tests, and submitted reports (print/email).
- Lab Reports: Specification for lab reports. (Including error analysis where required)
- Project Reports: Specification for project reports.
tasks: Computer based learning and assessment using the
Procedures and rules. For most computer-based assessments, homework must be presented before Tester (exam mode) can be attempted. In some cases, certain programs (e.g. Excel) are excluded from running with Tester during an exam.
When you have completed this unit of competency you will have developed the knowledge and skills to determine the resultant and equilibrant of systems of forces, in one plane, then determine nominal sizes for a simple horizontal beam subject to a combination of uniform and point loadings.
