MAE377 Product Design in a CAD Environment Test 01

Introduction:

 

First, we have to model a mug in Pro/Engineer following a certain set of guidelines.  We then must save the files appropriately and take multiple pictures of the mug.  Next, we submit Test 01 through UBLearns, and upload it to our Google website.  Attached at the bottom of the website are all the zipped files used in this project: PRT, ePRT, HTM, JPG, WORD, PDF.

Results:

Steps to Create Mug:

 

1.       I sketched half of the side profile of the mug in the front plane.  I did this with 3 straight lines, and an arc for the bottom of the cup.  The arc is perpendicular at the centerline.

2.       I then revolved this closed section about the middle edge of the mug.  This created a 3D solid of the mug. 

3.       Next, I used the shell feature to create a uniform thickness throughout the mug.

4.       I then created rounds of the same value on the outside bottom edge, and the inside bottom edge.

5.       I created the handle to the mug in this step.  This involved inserting a sweep that was a protrusion.  I sketched the trajectory as an arc, and the cross section as an ellipse.

6.       I then added rounds to where the handle attaches to the mug, and the outer and inner edges of the lip of the mug (all the same value).

7.       I then created a datum plane that is offset from the front plane by a distance of the radius of the mug.

8.       I used the datum plane 1 as a sketching plane for inserting my name as text.

9.       I extruded my name symmetric about the vertical axis into the mug by removing material.

10.   I took various “pictures” of the mug at different angles.  Some sketches were made to remove material via extrusion to show what the mug looks like cut in half, and what the inside of the handle looks like.
