MEC 1011 - Design Communication I
Assignment 9
Electronic Notebooks

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.

Procedure:

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 list of notebooks 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.

And

·         Contain links to assignment and project pages (in chronological order) like this.

Or

·         Contain headings over links to assignment content files like this.

Or

·         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.

·         AutoCAD models - open AutoCAD file (.dwg) with eDrawings and save as an 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:

Autodesk’s DWF Viewer may be needed to view the drawings and 3D models: http://www3.autodesk.com/adsk/images/4634727_dwfviewer_license_plate_Oct2004.gif

Rules of Thumb:

Avoid spaces in file and folder names

Advice:

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.
