About Mechanical Engineering CAD

Computer aided design (CAD) uses specialist software to create two and three dimensional images and animations of projects both in manufacturing and for use in advertising and technical manuals. CAD can convey many types of information, including dimensions, types of material, and tolerances and is essential in offering solutions to both engineering and manufacturing problems. By producing photorealistic animations and videos, it can simulate how a design will actually function in the real world .

The Challenge

Competitors are required to:
  • Create 3D models of components considering features of the various appropriate fabrication processes. Produce 2D detail drawings communicating the requirements of the type of material, material treatment, surface finishing and appropriate tolerances, etc.
  • Prepare assembly drawings and detailed part drawings of mechanical assemblies and components for manufacturing based on drafts, notes, or physical models.
  • Prepare drawings, schematics, graphical representations and charts required to fully articulate the motion study of parts in a mechanical assembly.
  • Implement engineering change orders by modifying existing components and assemblies, and adapt new parts and fixtures to existing parts and assemblies.
