Assignment Semester 2 Design Report (Portfolio) Mechanical Design 4MA018

The assignment is to create a design report, testing your CAD skills, understanding of tolerances limits, and fits. Review and research the traditional manual mechanical whisk shown below. Analyze the design and create a new (manual) design improving the design, specifically the ergonomics. Ensure your design has a mechanical movement.

Note:     you do not need to model the existing design only your improved design.

The Design Report should include:

  1. Design report should include description of each part and research to include:
  • use,
  • material properties,
  • using knowledge from Engineering Practice and your research, your thoughts on possible manufacturing and assembly methods.
  • Discussion on the part features,

All parts, assemblies and drawings must be created on Solidworks Student edition 2017

Submission of this assignment is via a Canvas Assessment UPLOAD
