4 Engineering Design with SolidWorks Project 4 Project Objective Design a FLASHLIGHT assembly according to the customer s requirements. The FLASHLIGHT assembly will be cost effective, serviceable and flexible for future manufacturing revisions. Design intent is the process in which the model is developed to accept future changes. Build design intent into the FLASHLIGHT sketches, features, parts and assemblies. Create a custom Part Template. The Part Template is the foundation for the FLASHLIGHT parts. Create the following parts: BATTERY. BATTERYPLATE. LENS. BULB. The other parts for the FLASHLIGHT assembly will be addressed in Project 5. On completion of this project, you will be able to: Apply design intent to sketches, features and parts. Choose the best profile for sketching. Choose the proper sketch plane. Create a Template: English and Metric units. Set Document Properties. Customize Toolbars. Insert/Edit Dimensions. Insert/Edit Relations. PAGE 4-3

5 Engineering Design with SolidWorks Use the following SolidWorks features: o Extruded-Boss/Base. o Extruded-Cut. o Edge Fillets. o Face Fillets. o Revolved Base. o Revolved Boss. o Boss Revolve Thin. o Cut Revolve Thin. o Dome. o Shell. o Circular Pattern. Design Intent The SolidWorks definition of design intent is the process in which the model is developed to accept future changes. Models behavior differently when design changes occur. Design for change. Utilize geometry for symmetry, reuse common features and reuse common parts. Build change into the following areas: 1. Sketch. 2. Feature. 3. Part. 4. Assembly. 5. Drawing. PAGE 4-4

6 Engineering Design with SolidWorks 1. Design Intent in the Sketch. Build the design intent in the sketch as the profile is created. A profile is determined from the sketch tools, Example: rectangle, circle and arc. Build symmetry into the profile through a sketch centerline, mirror entity and position about the reference planes and Origin. Build design intent as you sketch with automatic relationships. A rectangle contains horizontal, vertical and perpendicular automatic relations. Build design intent using added geometric relations. Example: horizontal, vertical, coincident, midpoint, intersection, tangent and perpendicular. Example A: Develop a square profile. Build the design intend to create a square profile. Sketch a rectangle. Insert a centerline. Add a midpoint relation. Add an equal relation between the two perpendicular lines. Insert a dimension to define the width of the square. PAGE 4-5

7 Engineering Design with SolidWorks Example B: Develop a rectangular profile. The bottom horizontal midpoint of the rectangular profile is located at the Origin. Sketch a rectangle. Add a midpoint relation between the horizontal edge of the rectangle and the Origin. Insert two dimensions to define the width and height of the rectangle. 2. Design Intent in the Feature. Build design intent into a feature by addressing symmetry, feature selection and the order of feature creations. Example A: Extruded feature remains symmetric about a plane. Utilize the Mid Plane Depth option. Change the depth and the feature symmetric about the Front Plane. Example B: Part manufactured utilizing an injection-molded process. Plastic parts require draft to remove the part from the mold. Utilize the Draft feature. Change the draft angle determined by the manufacturer. Example C: Six holes for a bolt circle. Do you create six separate Extruded Cuts? No. Create one hole with the Hole Wizard. Insert a Circular Pattern. Change the number of holes from five to eight. The holes remain centered on the bolt circle. PAGE 4-6

8 Engineering Design with SolidWorks 3. Design Intent in the Part. Utilize symmetry, feature order and reusing common features to build design intent into the part. Example A: Feature Order. Is the entire part symmetric? Feature order affects the part. Apply the Shell feature before the Fillet feature and the inside corners remain perpendicular. 4. Design Intent in the Assembly. Utilize symmetry, reusing common parts and using the Mate relationship between parts for the design intent of an Assembly. Example A: Reuse Geometry in the PLATE-TUBE assembly. The PLATE part contains a Circular Pattern of six Holes. Insert one TUBE into the first Hole. Utilize Component Pattern to copy the TUBE to the other five holes. PAGE 4-7

9 Engineering Design with SolidWorks 5. Design Intent in the Drawing. Utilize dimensions, tolerance and notes in parts and assemblies for the design intent of the Drawing. Example A: Tolerance and material in the drawing. Insert a outside diameter tolerance +.000/-.002 into the TUBE part. The tolerance propagates to the drawing. Define the Custom Property MATERIAL in the Part. The MATERIAL Custom Property propagates to the drawing. Additional information on the design process and design intent is available in Online Help, Introducing SolidWorks. PAGE 4-8

10 Engineering Design with SolidWorks Project Situation You work for a company that specializes in providing promotional tradeshow products. The company is expecting a sales order for 100,000 flashlights with a potential for 500,000 units next year. Prototype drawings of the flashlight are required in three weeks. You are the design engineer responsible for the project. You contact the customer to discuss design options and product specifications. The customer informs you that the flashlights will be used in an international marketing promotional campaign. Key customer requirements: Inexpensive reliable flashlight. Available advertising space of 10 square inches, 64.5 square centimeters. Light weight semi indestructible body. Self standing with a handle. Your company s standard product line does not address the above key customer requirements. The customer made it clear that there is no room for negotiation on the key product requirements. You contact the salesperson and obtain additional information on the customer and product. This is a very valuable customer with a long history of last minute product changes. The job has high visibility with great future potential. In a design review meeting, you present a conceptional sketch. Your colleagues review the sketch. The team s consensus is to proceed with the conceptual design. The first key design decision is the battery. The battery type directly affects the flashlight body size, bulb intensity, case structure integrity, weight, manufacturing complexity and cost. Review two potential battery options: A single 6-volt lantern battery. Four 1.5-volt D cell batteries. PAGE 4-9

11 Engineering Design with SolidWorks The two options affect the product design and specification. Think about it. A single 6-volt lantern battery is approximately 25% higher in cost and 35% more in weight. The 6-volt lantern battery does provide higher current capabilities and longer battery life. A special battery holder is required to incorporate the four 1.5 volt D cell configuration. This would directly add to the cost and design time of the FLASHLIGHT assembly. Time is critical. For the prototype, you decide to use a standard 6-volt lantern battery. This eliminates the requirement to design and procure a special battery holder. However, you envision the 4-D cell battery model for the next product revision. Design the FLASHLIGHT assembly to accommodate both battery design options. PAGE 4-10

12 Engineering Design with SolidWorks Battery dimensional information is required for the design. Where do you go? Potential sources: product catalogs, company web sites, professional standards organizations, design handbooks and colleagues. The team decides to purchase the following parts: 6-volt BATTERY, LENS ASSEMBLY, SWITCH and an O-RING. Model the following purchased parts: BATTERY, LENS assembly, SWITCH and the O-RING. The LENS assembly consists of the LENS and the BULB. Your company will design, model and manufacture the following parts: BATTERYPLATE, LENSCAP and HOUSING. Purchased Parts: BATTERY LENS assembly *SWITCH *O-RING Designed Parts: BATTERYPLATE *LENSCAP *HOUSING *Parts addressed in Project 5. Project Overview Create four parts for the FLASHLIGHT assembly in this section: BATTERY. BATTERYPLATE. LENS. BULB. Extruded Base feature BATTERY PLATE BATTERY Revolve Base feature LENS BULB PAGE 4-11

13 Engineering Design with SolidWorks Two major Base features are addressed in this project: Extrude BATTERY and BATTERYPLATE. Revolve LENS and BULB. Note: Dimensions and features are used to illustrate the SolidWorks functionality. Wall thickness and thread size are increased for improved picture illustration. Parts have been simplified. Four additional parts are created in Project 5 for the final FLASHLIGHT assembly. O-RING. LENSCAP. SWITCH. HOUSING. BATTERY The BATTERY is a simplified representation of an OEM part. The BATTERY consists of the following features: Extruded Base. Extruded Cut. Edge\Face Fillets. Extruded Boss with Draft Angle option. The battery terminals are represented as cylindrical extrusions. The battery dimension is obtained from the ANSI standard 908D. A 6-volt lantern battery weighs approximately 1.38 pounds, (0.62kg). Locate the center of gravity closest to the center of the battery.

31 Engineering Design with SolidWorks Injection Molded Process Lee Plastics of Sterling, MA is a precision injection molding company. Through the World Wide Web ( review the injection molded manufacturing process. The injection molding process is as follows: An operator pours the plastic resin in the form of small dry pellets, into a hopper. The hopper feeds a large augur screw. The screw pushes the pellets forward into a heated chamber. The resin melts and accumulates into the front of the screw. At high pressure, the screw pushes the molten plastic through a nozzle, to the gate and into a closed mold, (Plates A & B). Plates A and B are the machined plates that you will design in this project. The plastic fills the part cavities through a narrow channel called a gate. The plastic cools and forms a solid in the mold cavity. The mold opens, (along the parting line) and an ejection pin pushes the plastic part out of the mold into a slide.
