Design-centric curriculum (DCC) is an alternative learning pathway that was established 2 years ago at the National University of Singapore (NUS) in response to the increasing demand from the industry for engineering graduates who are able to think creatively, define problems, and work across disciplines in a multidisciplinary team. Design-thinking as a technique to develop innovative solutions to a set of problems defined by the students forms the backbone of the curriculum. This alternative curriculum consists of students working in a team on a multi-year, multidisciplinary project that is the main learning vehicle in DCC and is aimed at developing certain desired traits in our students. We will cover the types of formative and summative assessment that were developed by the DCC team to assess the achievement of our students, and we will share with the audience our philosophy, methodology, and experience in the development of the assessment method that was adopted.

In this class, you will learn how you can use the power of the cloud to work with virtually any design data to create stunning visual 2D and 3D interactive documentation. Publish your 3D documentation in compelling ways, including to the Apple® iPad® and Android™ mobile devices as well as to HTML using WebGL. Turn product documentation into a competitive advantage for your company.
The iLogic component in Autodesk Inventor software is very powerful in helping users automate segments of their design process. This class will show students five ways they can use iLogic that are not specific to any one design. We will start with an introduction to iLogic. Then, we will address five scenarios that the students could be facing and the iLogic rules that could be used to resolve the issues. We will discuss topics such as sheet metal extents, plot stamps, iProperties, saving as PDF, and exporting bills of materials.
This intermediate-to-advanced virtual class offers AutoCAD 3D veterans a chance to explore 2D model documentation of 3D models from AutoCAD 2013 and Autodesk Inventor software inside of AutoCAD 2013. Create base views and projected views from 3D models. Use the new Viewbase command to generate a base 2D view and the Viewproj command to create projected orthographic views. We will edit the 3D models and update the derived drawing views. We will add dimensions to the drawing views and modify the 3D model to update the dimensions. We will explore the creation of undocumented auxiliary views. If you used AutoCAD 3D in the past, attend this class and get ready to be surprised!
This class will focus on how students age 10 to 20 are taught to use Autodesk® digital design technologies to design and make creative products and working prototypes that address a variety of needs. We will demonstrate methods for a creative design process and explain how metacognitive thinking skills have been applied in the classroom. We will also discuss our methods and the results of action research carried out on a range of mixed-ability students across the age range.
In many cases, the bill of materials is the most important part of your drawings when it comes to communicating within and outside your corporation. This class will examine the power of the bill of materials (BOM) produced by Autodesk Inventor software. We will explore the interface and examine how the BOM is built and maintained. We will explain the 2 BOM types as well as how the BOM structure impacts what you see in both the assembly BOM and the drawing parts list. We will show you how to use quantity and part number merging to build cut lists and other types of parts lists. Finally, we will explore how the bill of materials can be exported to a neutral format and used in other systems and see how the Inventor bill of materials compares to an item master created using Autodesk® Vault Professional software.
Transformation of engineering education has been a recent concern in the education and industry communities, with a call to integrate "science" and "application" through design. With health topping today’s issues, design of medical devices has become a major candidate for design applications to be taught to engineering undergraduates. This class describes the preparation and the delivery of an education module where rigorous subjects such as kinematics and strength of materials are taught in the context of designing medical devices. Autodesk® ForceEffect™ and Autodesk® ForceEffect™ Motion software are used to introduce concepts such as force and moment, and Autodesk® Inventor® Professional software is used to develop, simulate, and manufacture the devices designed by the students. This class covers a general design concept, followed by a case study that details design of a tissue microarrayer. This approach, due to its contextual nature, is also applicable to industry training centers.
Do you reuse most or all of your previous designs for every new customer order? Do you want your salespeople and/or your customers to be able to easily configure design orders and be confident that the configurations are valid? If so, join us in this class as we discuss how Autodesk Inventor Engineer-to-Order (ETO) software delivers easy-to-use web and mobile interfaces for configuring products. You will also learn how Inventor ETO enables easy reuse and management of CAD data in the back-end database.
In this class, you will learn how you can use SAP software to manage complex design information for AutoCAD software. Specifically, you will discover how AutoCAD has been integrated with SAP to provide a comfortable working environment and stable engineering platform. You will also learn how design information can be used in SAP for downstream planning and production activities, thereby encapsulating the entire product lifecycle process. A general knowledge of SAP and AutoCAD is recommended.
