MEC 1011 - Design Communication I
Due at the end of our First meeting in Week 9
With a small twist on the usual, create a new folder for your work using your full_name (formally and with no spaces ex. Paul_Johnson) and located in V:\MEC\1011\Fall_10\Electronic_Notebooks/Tx (where Tx is T2 or T3).
It’s time to show off your work.
1. With Microsoft Word hit the Office Button and then Save As. In the dialog box under Save As Type, choose Web Page. Or, Consider adapting Assignments.htm found in V:/MEC/1011/Fall_10. Or, you could “steal” a start by saving a copy of someone else’s page (consider giving credit).
2. Make folders for each assignment and the Mid-term Project
3. Put any files that represent your work inside the appropriate electronic notebook folder
4. Make your links (see ‘Your electronic notebook should:’ below)
5. Check the and let me know if I need to fix the link to your file.
Your electronic notebook should:
· Link back to ENotebooks.htm in the Fall_10 folder. Make backward (upward) links absolute when they exit your electronic notebook.
· Contain links to assignment and project pages (in chronological order) like this.
· Contain headings over links to assignment content files like this.
· Use some combination of the two
Either way, you will be linking to all relevant material:
· Hand Drawings - scanned or digitally photographed (.jpg or similar)
· SolidWorks drawings, custom part models and assembly models – from SolidWorks use File/Publish eDrawings File.
· Also, for SolidWorks custom part models and assembly models and AutoCAD models - Use the Snipping Tool under the Start Button to save images (.jpg or .PNG). like this
Consider a Bill of Material table format like this:
Rules of Thumb:
Avoid spaces in file and folder names
1. Keep it simple!
2. Put useful shortcuts on the root of your M: or W: drive that will quickly take you down into your electronic notebook folder.
