Teaching of Parametric Modeling Methodologies for Undergraduate Engineering Students
WSEAS Transactions on Advances in Engineering Education
In this paper, the experiences of incorporating parametric modeling methodologies in a computer aided design course are introduced. This course aims at sophomore and junior mechanical engineering students. Students are expected to understand the fundamentals of solid modeling, incorporate design intents in modeling processes effectively, and master basic skills of using commercial software for solid modeling. The overview of course design is given, encountered challenges are discussed, and solutions to these challenges are provided. Tentative results from two-year teaching are reported, and some suggestions for further improvement have been identified.
