This class is called CAD and its thought by Mr. Roach. In this class we learn multiple things from wiring to programming. I think most of this is valuable for our future because we get thought things that you will need to know for jobs that will never die out for example being a certain type of engineer. In this project we had to manufacture a solar box and we had to do this by making a design in solidworks than making the walls and end in master cam and putting the rabbits. When this was all constructed we had to put something in the solar box and then put it in the sun and measure how much did the heat change and if it was effective.
In this assignment we had to construct a solar box with a partner starting from designing all sides and then actually building it. In this assignment we had to work with a partner to make a solar box and one of the main things we had to do was communicate and do research to see what type of solar box would work best for us and figure out how we were going to make it. We first started off by going to solidworks and make a prototype that will show how the final product would look. After this was doen we had to go into master came and make all the walls and ends of the boxes with all the measurements correct. After that was done we had to put our work in a usb and then put it in a machine that would cut the wood howwe manufactured it in master cam. After that we assembled it and put the solar panels on it and tested it. I had to learn how to use master came because before this project I never used this program so I had to learn this skill. After that was done we started making our project. This tells me about myself if a practice at doing something I will master it eventually.
Two of the most important things I have learned in this class was how to communicate with my partner to get the project done so we can do it right and not do double work. ANother thing I learned was how to program its important because most good paying jobs are based on this or something similar so this is good to know. These skills will help me in the future because most jobs that pay good and won't die out are based on this or something similar to this so these skills are good to know for later on
During the class of computer aided design, the learning objectives are to manufacture different things and make things on different computer aided design programs. This is valuable to my future because all the things we do in the class are futuristic since it's all on computers and mostly everything includes technology. By me knowing this it's giving me an advantage for the future. The project that I am submitting as an artifact for computer aided design had the following learning objectives to partner up and construct a car and wheels on a program called solidworks. Once we were done doing this we printed our tractor out and saw how much weight it can pull. These link back to the course learning objectives by working in a partnership and communicating to get the job done.
The assignment or project was about making a tractor and wheels from scratch in a computer program and test how much weight it can pull. And required me to talk to my partner of how we were going to make it adn off of that we manufacture our tractor and wheels. The Process I went through to do this project and meet the learning objectives first started with me discussing with my partner on how we were going to make the tractor and the wheels. Then from there we made the tractor in solidworks and the wheels. Once we got all the right measurements we printed it out. After this we got all the necessary wires and motor and we started wiring. After this was done we attached the motor to it and saw how much weight our tractor can pull. Throughout this process listed above I have realized I have learned or grown in the following ways on how I communicate with my peers and how working together works and how we can make anything work. These link back to the course goals and project goals with the following evidence of our success of our tractor and how efficient it worked. This tells me the following about myself and how I learn if I focus on something and dedicate to it I can make it to the best of my ability and come out good and in a good amount of time.
The Two School Wide Learning Outcomes I demonstrated with this Artifact are Self Directed learner who communicates effectively and Thinking critically and creatively. I have demonstrated Self Directed learner who communicates effectively in the artifact by talking to my partner and telling eachother ideas on how we could make our model better and using our time effectively .This is important because if we weren’t capable enough of doing so we would be lost and would of had a lot of disagreements. The Second SLO I demonstrated was Thinking critically and creatively by making wheels to our tractor since I was the one in charge of this. If I didn’t have creativity I don't know how I would of made them. It's important because to make something better you need creativity. I could have improved the following SLO Mastering skills needed in career and college better by practicing more on my solidworks skills.
Overall the the most important things I have learned in this class this year are how to use different CAD programs to manufacture things. These skills I have learned in this class will help me in the future by being more experienced in technology.
