Application procedureYou apply via OSIRIS Student
Registration using OSIRISYes
After passing the course, the student can:
  1. Describe development processes and development phases in an interrelated manner
  2. Describe and apply different methods and techniques (curves, surfaces and solids) that are used in CAD/CAM systems. 
  3. Describe possible ways to exchange data between different software tools (CAD, analysis, manufacturing) and select appropriate methods.
  4. Describe and apply rendering techniques
  5. Describe and apply modern methods and techniques in technical product modelling
  6. Apply feature based modelling techniques and employ them to make doubly curved surfaces.
  7. Build large assemblies in such a way that they can easily be adapted (e.g. in case of re-design)
This is a part of Module 6, ID M6 Consumer Products  of the Bachelor Industrial Design Engineering. See here for the complete description of this module

Nowadays, computer tools are essential during the product development process (design and production processes). They integrate different processes in the product development process so that products are developed more effectively. This course pays attention to a number of aspects of the technical product development process. Also different advanced 3D modelling techniques are an important part of this course.
The student becomes acquainted with methods and techniques which play an important role in CAD and CAM in mechanical engineering and industrial design engineering.
The course aims on the role of CAD in the product development process by looking at amongst others:
  • design processes and types of design models;
  • modelling of geometry like curves, surfaces or solids;
  • storage, management and use of design data;
  • exchange of product data;
  • finite element analysis;
  • design efficiency and the possibilities of different technologies.
The assignment focusses on modelling of complex assemblies, with a special focus on modular and flexible modelling so that assemblies can be redesigned quickly and easily. Also renderings, animations and simulations (strength/stiffness) are part of the assignment.
