Hey all! I'm curious-- what types of CAD projects do your students typically enjoy working on in the classroom?

    I got good feedback for a recent large project. Students worked in teams of 5 to create a "real world" machine for which I gave them 2D dimensioned drawings for most parts and just basic design information for simple parts like spacers, pins, rest buttons, etc. There were 39 parts in the package with several assembly views and a BOM so they could create the completed assembly. The parts ranged in point values from 5 to 20 based on complexity and number of features. They enjoyed working with each other and fixing each other's problems when they occurred. In a survey I was told time and again that they like that it was a "real" machine and not just random parts.
