  • Purpose and learning objectives

    Case 3 with the sub title SolidWorks is an assignment covering the core area Technical Documentation (TD) from the PRT curriculum.

    You are hired in as an external consultant to help a company create a set of 3D drawings for technical documentation of an existing product.

    Your main task is to disassemble and measure the various parts, and hereafter re-draw them in the CAD program


    The student will gain knowledge about the practice of the profession and the subject area as well as key applied theory and methods, including:

    structure and coherence in building a 3D model


    The student will get the skills to:

    apply the key methodologies and tools of the subject area as well as the skills associated with employment in the industry, including:

    o the use of 3D CAD (Computer-Aided Design) software in the construction of a 3D CAD model at part as well as assembly level.

    communicate practice-orientated issues and solutions to partners and users, including:

    o conversion of sketches, concept descriptions and design calculations to a 3D CAD model.

  • Type of instruction
    Finally, the student will be required to submit a set of the individual parts and an assembly drawing for the bench (all in 3D) in WISEflow. It is expected that everyone will hand in, because the above mentioned forms the basis for passing the 2nd semester.
  • Exam

    The learning outcomes of the exam are identical with the learning outcomes of the subject(s)/modul(es)

    Exam in one or more subjects
    Subject/module is tested with the following modules
    Type of exam
    Written examination
    Part-exam A in the first semester consists of a number of written portfolio assignments which together form the basis for the assessment of the part-exam. KEA will set a deadline by when all portfolio assignments must be submitted. It is a requirement that all portfolio assignments must be passed individually with a grade of 02 as a minimum.

    The individual portfolio assignments are weighted in the overall assessment according to the number of ECTS points of the course. This course is weighted 2/30.

    The grade for the individual portfolio assignments and the resulting grade for part-exam A are communicated to the student. Only the overall grade for the first-year exam will appear on the diploma.

    If portfolio assignments are submitted immediately after completion of the course, the student(s) will receive feedback on the assignment. There will be no feedback on portfolio assignments submitted later than the first deadline for submission. Deadlines for submission with feedback will appear on KEA's learning platform at the beginning of the semester.
    Formal requirements
    The student will be required to individually submit a set of parts and an assembly drawing of an industrial product - all in 3D - in WISEflow.
