Abstract

Computer Aided Design (CAD) is a mandatory course for first-year mechanical engineering students at TU Darmstadt. Siemens NX and Teamcenter are used to teach the students the principles of 3D computer aided design, product data management, and collaborative engineering. The course is partitioned in three parts: part modelling, assembly modeling, and technical drawings. Each part has its distinct set of deliverables. For the second part, assembly modelling, a new 3D CAD model embodying a Formula Student racecar is used. The task and the underlying model will be introduced in this poster. During the coached exercises, project groups of 6 students work as a team to model parts of the racecar in NX using technical drawings, norms and information about space restrictions. Some parts are modeled by the students using different features of the CAD system. Other parts are supplied through Teamcenter. Part and assembly constraints need to be considered at every step of the process. To allow for simultaneous assembly, the 3D CAD model is built using independent sub-assemblies. The calculation of specified tolerances, fits, and bolts is also one deliverable in this part of the course. The calculated design and manufacturing information is applied to the model through corresponding NX features. The early integration of this racecar model in the second semester lays a foundation for its usage in further lectures, courses, projects and theses.

Computer Aided Design (CAD) ist eine Pflichtveranstaltung für Zweitsemester des Maschinenbaus an der TU Darmstadt. Siemens NX und Teamcenter werden verwendet, um den Studenten die Prinzipien des 3D-Computer-Aided Design, Produkt-Daten-Management und Collaborative Engineering zu zu vermitteln. Die Aufgabe des zweiten Prüfungsabschnitts und das zugrundeliegende Modell werden in diesem Poster vorgestellt. Während der begleiteten Übungen arbeiten Projektgruppen von 6 Studenten als Team, um Teile eines Rennwagens in NX mit technischen Zeichnungen, Normen und Informationen über Raumbeschränkungen zu modellieren. Der rennwagen verkörpert einen real existierenden Prototypen. Einige Bauteile, die unterschiedliche Features des CAD-Systems verwenden, werden von den Studenten modelliert. Andere bauteile werden über Teamcenter freigegeben. Teil- und Montagebeschränkungen müssen bei jedem Schritt des Prozesses berücksichtigt werden. Um eine gleichzeitige Montage zu ermöglichen, wird das 3D-CAD-Modell mit unabhängigen Baugruppen aufgebaut. Die frühe Integration dieses Rennwagenmodells im zweiten Semester legt eine Grundlage für den Einsatz in weiteren Vorlesungen, Kursen, Projekten und Dissertationen.German
