The First Year Cornerstone
Project (dissection and modelling)
Students are provided a project
framework as a recent hire of company XYZ Tools. Their first assignment
as a new employee was to evaluate and conceptualize a competitor’s
product. Teams are required to use SolidEdge CAE software for model design,
benchmark the product, and create a technical report with a complete set
of engineering drawings based upon their dissection of the product. Judging
is based on the teams acquired skills, using SolidEdge for the modelling,
assembly, and engineering drawings of the product.
Congratulations to 1st
Place team McMaster students, Matthew Balyk, Morgan Cunningham, and
Jaclyn Obemeyer for their great Spray Gun product design. Not only
did they win the first McMaster PACE Competition, their team went
on to the national team competition at the 2008 UGS Connection Americas
Conference in Orlando, Florida in June and took 3rd place for their design
- Great Job!
