This module further explores the techniques for modelling 3D representations of artefacts using industry standard software and the appreciation of machine codes to manufacture products and/or prototypes using computer numerically controlled machinery (CNC).
The module is designed to enable students to create their own concept designs using industrial standard Computer Aided Design (CAD) software. These computer representations will be required to explore digital design for small and large batch components and products. The protocols, created for the CNC machine code, will be tested using computer simulations to identify and modify errors. Students will be able to explore and select various CNC machinery, according to the design and manufacturing requirements of the design.
A student passing this module should be able to:
A course map contains a list of the individual study units, called modules, that you study to complete your course. Some modules are compulsory, but you can sometimes choose modules outside your core area of study which interest you.
A module is a self-contained, individual unit of study. The module descriptor provides various details about the module including who the module tutor is, what you will be studying, how you will be assessed and what you will have learned once you have completed the module.
