Build ONE common part to be included in our parts library. Common parts include: Bolts (hexagonal, socket head, slotted, countersunk, other head types etc), nuts, washers (flat, spring etc), steel sections (I beam, channel, angle), tubes, bearings, plumber blocks, clevis joints, hinges, etc. These are to be built using parametric variables so that the sizes can be adjusted for use in different models. Check with teacher first to ensure your model is not duplicated by someone else.
Model a sheet metal part. Good examples are internal sheet-metal work from electronic equipment, like internal computer housings, power supply housings, automotive computer housings. The average toolbox is usually a bit too pathetic - look for something with interesting holes, bends, possibly louvres and dimples.
Build the component, then flat pattern. Make dimensioned drawing of flat pattern, make dxf for profile cutting.
Use SE piping facility to build a pipe profile. This is best included into your project.
Use engineering reference to solve beams, columns and shafts.
Use surfaces to construct a part. Best used in your project.
Show the use of a macro in building a part.
Build motion into an assembly with at least 3 linked moving parts. (e.g. piston/conrod/crankshaft)
An assembly of a real
machine that involves as many of the above as possible. No less than 10
parts, aim for about 20. (If some of the above are not relevant you
need to add a separate project in order to demonstrate that feature.)
