Product Manufacturing and Cost Estimating using CAD/CAE
This is the second part of a four part series that covers discussion of computer design tools throughout the design process. Through this book, the reader will.
-.understand basic design principles and all digital design paradigms.
-.understand CAD/CAE/CAM tools available for various design related tasks.
-.understand how to put an integrated system together to conduct All Digital Design (ADD).
-.understand industrial practices in employing ADD and tools for product development.
- Provides a comprehensive and thorough coverage of essential elements for product manufacturing and cost estimating using the computer aided engineering paradigm
- Covers CAD/CAE in virtual manufacturing, tool path generation, rapid prototyping, and cost estimating; each chapter includes both analytical methods and computer-aided design methods, reflecting the use of modern computational tools in engineering design and practice
- A case study and tutorial example at the end of each chapter provides hands-on practice in implementing off-the-shelf computer design tools
- Provides two projects at the end of the book showing the use of Pro/ENGINEER® and SolidWorks® to implement concepts discussed in the book
