For all interested (students, faculty, and staff), I want to offer the first annual CAD-Hack. After talking with alums, they stated that they hire based on skills and want to see examples of those skills — CAD being one of the major ones. So I thought I would “offer” a 2 day CAD course — Jan 14 / 15 from 10-3 in Blake-Perlman. The goal will be to produce an animated robot arm with load estimates on all the joints when it picks up a 15 N weight. Unlike regular courses, this will be a bunch of us working together to figure out how to do this — using online tutorials and wild guessing (as I am hardly a CAD expert). You will choose your CAD software and I will invite a few students who are good at CAD to come by periodically to help. At 2:30 each day we will stop and share what we have accomplished and plan out what to do for the next day. Extra credit will go to the team that can get their robot to lay a bead of glue around the windshield of a virtual car of their choice (mine will glue in the windshield of a Tesla S, of course). Part of my goal here is to get better at CAD myself — because I am not very adept at it.

If you are interested, please sign up- so I know how many people we have. The department will provide pizza lunch for all of those who can show impressive CAD drawings.
