LESSON IDEA 11: SIMPLE MECHANISMS
Curriculum Idea: Students will research and model simple mechanisms or mechanical movements
Topic area: Mechanisms, Mechanical Linkages
Description: Assign students to research mechanisms that change motion from one type to another or are used to transmit power. They can research the application of these mechanisms and what devices they are used in. Then students can model a mechanism in Onshape. These models can be 3D printed to be kept as a display or for students to keep.
Learning Objectives: After completing this project, students should be able to:
Use Mates such as Revolute, and Slider in Onshape
See how the mechanisms can be changed to affect desired output
Develop designs for manufacturing (3D printing)
