Product Design Customization
PROD DESIGN
CLASS CODE: ENGRT 238 CREDITS:  3
DIVISION: PHYSICAL SCIENCE & ENGINEERING
DEPARTMENT: MECHANICAL ENGINEERING & TECHNOLOGY
GENERAL EDUCATION: This course does not fulfill a General Education requirement.

DESCRIPTION: A study of product design customization using advanced CAD and CAM applications. Topics include advanced solids modeling, menu customization, customized software programming, and rapid prototyping. Students will be working as team members in the resolution of engineering design problems.
TAUGHT: Winter
CONTENT AND TOPICS: Topics include engineering design process, teaming, advanced solids modeling, drawing layout, menu and toolbar creation, AutoLisp programming, advanced animation and creation of special effects, and rapid prototype development.
GOALS AND OBJECTIVES: The student will:
1. Apply computer programming techniques to computer-aided design software to develop customized product designs.
2. Apply inverse kinematic animation techniques to composite 3D parametric models.
3. Understand andapply engineering design processes for the conceptual and final designs of any given product.
4. Develop and document any given design project.
5. Function on an engineering design team.
6. Use parametric modeling concepts and software.
REQUIREMENTS: 1. Evaulation methods will include weekly laboratory assignments (40%), exams/quizzes (40%), and a final project (20%).

2. Passing grades of A, B, C, and D will be earned by minimum averages of 90%, 80%, 70%, and 60%, respectively.

3. All work is expected to be handed in on time. Late work will be penalized as follows: 1 week - 10%, over 1 week - NO CREDIT.

4. Regular attendance and punctuality will influence the final grade and the level of achievement. Missing lectures significantly lowers comprehension of course material, thus performance is decreased. In questions of a close grade, students with unexcused absences will not be given extra consideration. In addition, students with unexcused absences who miss quizzes will not be allowed make-up quizzes.

5. Consult with the instructor or your advisor about your school work BEFORE you become overly discouraged and downhearted. A few minutes spent at the right time will save hours of frustration and unproductive work. There is no such thing as a "dumb question." If a concept is unclear to you, it is probably unclear to others as well. Do not hesitate to ask questions: either in or out of class. We are here to master this material and to succeed, not fail. Take pride in your work. Be professional. Let your work represent your best efforts.

6. One of the major goals at BYU-Idaho is that of providing quality educational opportunities in a rich spiritual environment. To obtain this desired level of spiritual influence, students are asked to observe all points of the Code of Honor, including the dress and groom standards.

I'd like to take this opportunity to remind you of the commitment you made to live the Code of Honor when you signed your application form to BYU-Idaho. You are expected to observe the Code of Honor: specifically be honest, refrain from any form of cheating, obey all university rules and regulations, compoly with the university dress and grooming standards, and help others live the Code of Honor.

The dress and gromming standard is fully defined in the BYU-Idaho catalog. I would encourage all students to be modest in their attire, and neat and clean in their personal appearance. Conscientious attention to appropriate dress and grooming will enhance your performance in class and contribute to the spiritual environment of BYU-Idaho.
