I am looking for some real world projects for my Engineering Drafting & Design students. Does anyone have any projects that will include research, computations, analysis and modeling? These can be projects that you released several years ago, are not going to work on, or you just find them cool.
Also I am working on a semester long project like a go-kart, alternative fuel vehicle, robot, etc… that will cover the many different tools of SolidWorks as well as get them working together in teams to get the project done.
Anyhow, all of these project my students are responsible for presenting the project specifications (Customer Market, size, weight, movement…) to the rest of the class and ask the audience for ideas (Brainstorming). Then they will begin their designs with periodic update presentations. Their final presentation will include their designs, testing results and hopefully if I can get some help from area manufacturers, prototypes.
