Manufacturing and Industrial Technology Capstone

MIT 240

Course Description

Prerequisites: Prerequisites: CAD 114, and CAD 226, and CNC 225 and instructor permission.

Demonstrates application based activities that tie previous manufacturing learning together. Incorporates skills learned in drafting, CAD CAM, and manual and CNC machining to complete a capstone project. Applies critical thinking skills in design, build and test of the product. Includes process planning, cost analysis and marketing as part of the capstone project. Requires a final presentation of product design and development. Must request approval from program coordinator to apply for capstone course one semester prior to enrollment. (0-45)

Outcomes and Objectives

Produce a 3D parametric model of a product and process for manufacturing.

Objectives:

  • Use navigantional tools such as Rotate, Pan, and Zoom in the modeling mode.
  • Modify the 3D solid using Cut, Fillet, Chamfer, and Shell features.
