Lab HW5

This Week in Section:

This week students will meet in the computer lab (rm 239). Students will cover several Inventor tutorials and learn about 3D printing.
  • Inventor Robot Assembly Tutorial
  • 3D print tutorial
  • CAD of robot
    • CAD your concept hand sketch (completed as homework)
    • Use this time wisely! Collaborate with your teammates, ask questions to your tutor, etc..
    • Print out screenshot at the end of section.
  • Risk Reduction Review with Tutor
  • Individual Energy Analysis Proposal Review with Lead TA
  • While waiting for Tutor and TA to get to your group, teams will create CAD of their robot.
Required Reading:

Section Preparation:

Assignments Due in Section:

  • Complete SolidProfessor Assemblies
    • Complete the "SolidProfessor Assy Quiz" ON TRITONED. These questions are based off the SolidProfessor videos for this week.
    • Print out a screen shot of the "Rotating Slider Mechanism" and the "Rotary Piston Assembly".
  • Concept Hand Sketch Assignment
    • Hand Sketch a critical component to be CADed in section
      • Must included at least 3 different components (motor, spring, etc..)
      • Dimension several key dimensions
      • Sketch the three views: front, side, top
    • Examples: Drivetrain, claw mechanism, conveyor belt, lift mechanism, etc....
    • Team should coordinate so each student draws a different part, but these parts can be assembled together.
  • Risk Reduction Proposal (review actual Risk Reduction Demo, which is during Lab HW6)
  • Team Force-Torque-Power-Energy Analysis - team works together and submits 1 form
    • Hints: some motors spin slow enough to measure speed by eye and others spin too fast and you must use the measurement setup.
    • Additional information found here
  • Individual Energy Analysis PROPOSAL
