MEC 1011 - Design Communication I
Assignment 2

  1. Create a new folder using your full_name and located in V:\MEC\1011\Fall_10\Assignment2/Tx (where Tx is T2 or T3).
  2. Create a part or parts that demonstrate the following features:

Note: Name your files to reflect the skills demonstrated: (i.e. Revolve_Shell.SLDPRT), and save all files in the folder you made in step 1.

Features that require sketches:

·         Extrude Boss/Base

·         Extrude Cut

·         Revolve Boss/Base

·         Revolve Cut

·         Sweep

·         Loft

·         Rib

Features that do not require sketches

·         Hole – Use Hole Wizard Only (makes its own sketches)

·         Fillet/Round

·         Chamfer (hiding under fillet)

·         Circular Pattern

·         Draft

·         Shell

·         Mirror

Reference Geometry:

·         Plane

  1. Fully Define all sketches (add dimensions and relations to make the geometry black and get the ‘Fully Defined’ message lower right).
  2. Key in ‘clean numbers’ for all dimensions.\




I didn’t know SolidWorks very well at this point, and I had trouble trying to figure out how to use the different features required.  I ended up being able to figure out how to make this box, then put three holes in it.  One extruded cut, one hole using the wizard, and on rather poorly done swept cut.
