Computer-Aided Design And Manufacturing

This course covers the principles of the computer-aided tools: CAD and CAM, which are widely used in modern design and manufacturing industry. By introducing the mathematical background of CAD/CAM, this course provides the basics for students to understand the techniques and their industrial applications. The topics are: CAD: geometric modelling methods for curves, surfaces, and solids; CAM: part fabrication by CNC machining based on given geometric model; Basics of CNC machining; Tool path generation in CAD/CAM; Verification of fabricated part by CNC measurement based on given geometric model. The module is targeted at students specialising in manufacturing engineering.
