Course detail

Advanced 3D Modelling

FEKT-MPA-POMAcad. year: 2023/2024

To handle the work using the electronic definition method of the product on the SolidWorks system. This method represent complex solution, which unite individual islands in one logic whole from the sketch form- design up to self-connection to the production in opposite of the classic method of TPV, when on the development of the complex product cooperate several working groups and its necessary very precision activity coordination. The simulating of the technology process of the production, the analysis with the simulating program input to the process of TPV, kinematic simulation, finite element method, finite volume method, 3D print, movies making using the PhotoView sudio module.

70 count - test in last semester
The content and forms of instruction in the evaluated course are specified by a regulation issued by the lecturer responsible for the course and updated for every academic year.


The goal is to apprise the students with the new trend in technical preparation of the production, when the development is taking complexly by deployment of the system from the development to the production. The students deepen knowledge in making more complex 3D volume models. They obtain the overview of the possibility of kinematic analysis, the movie making in the 3D studo environment PhotoView, output on CAM and 3D print.
- The student will be apprised with the EPD - Electronic Product Definition - electronic product definition.
- The student will be able to create more complex shapes in the SolidWorks system, including the production of sheet metal parts of the cabinet type.
- Student will be able to master animation * .avi format including creation in 3D Photo View.
- The student will have an overview of the PDM, PLM, ERP systems as a CAD system upgrade.
- The student will be familiar with the CAM system and with the possibilities of creating the NC code.
- The student will have an overview of 3D printing options.
- Student will have an overview of the possibilities of CAE Computer Aided Engineering - output of 3D volume modeling as a basis for mathematical and physical analysis.
