Main purpose

The purpose of the course is to give students basic digital skills in engineering and forms the basis for DIG2
The course contains two parts that introduce
• 3D CAD and digital twins
• Microcontrollers and automation

Knowledge

The student will acquire knowledge of the following:
• The user interface and understanding of the structure in a 3D CAD-system
• Use sketching, constraints and dimensions as basis for 3D features
• Create geometrical features
• Create assemblies
• Create and edit 2D drawings for parts and assemblies
• Use of CAD in Maker Space
• Recognize and identify datatypes
• Data acquisition with different sensors
• Use of actuators in automatic processes
• Basic knowledge about I/O as well as ADC and DAC
 

Skills

The student will acquire skills in:
• Create 3D parts and assemblies in a 3D CAD-system
• Assemble and document parts on a 2D drawing
• Use digital twins in connection with 3D printers og CNC machines
• Recognise and identify datatypes
• Write, test and document simple scripts for controlling a microcontroller
• Data acquisition
• Use of sensors and actuators
 

Competences

After completing the course the student will be able to:
• Use a 3D CAD program
• Account for data flow and relate it to microcontroller systems
• Design and implement simple circuits with microcontrollers, sensors and actuators.
