Assignments

All lab assignments are due at the beginning of section; no late assignments accepted.

Late attendance to section will result in a 50% reduction in attendance grade.



Lab 1

Required Reading

  • Student Guide (also handed out during the first day of lectures)
  • The Mechanical Design Process by Ulllman; Course Reader p 1-10.
  • Clock Project parts 1 & 2 (Escapement wheel and pendulum)

Assignments Due in Section

Only for section on the first lecture day, (Thursday) both Lab HW1 and Lab HW2 assignments can be handed in together during their second lab meeting.
Spatial Visualization Pre-Test

Due Sunday Midnight at the End of Week 1 

Physics Review

In MAE3 key concepts from Physics 2A (Statics) will be used.

Students who feel that they need a refresher are highly encouraged to attend a physics review run by the class TAs.

Location and Time TBD

DFM Extra Credit

Design For Manufacturability (DFM) Extra Credit.

Find an object in everyday life where the design includes aspects relating to DFM. Typically these relate to cost reduction while still providing for high performance parts. A common approach is  low tolerance design that still allow for easy assembly.  Examples presented in class include:
  • Large clearance holes
  • Slots
  • Texture on plastics parts to hide imperfections, so that a lower cost molds can be used.
Write up a 1-2 page summary including a photo of the part and a description of what features of DFM were used. First use your intuition to identify DFM features, but you can look up aspects on the internet for verification.
