Timeline Detail: Vehicle CAD Model
Shortly after the initial meeting at Broughal, Lehigh students begin the project in earnest during "Project Week 1" of the ME 240 lab.
During this week, the teams start creating a virtual model of the car using SolidWorks computer aided design (CAD) software. The Broughal students once again join their Lehigh teammates in the CAD lab located in Packard Lab.
During the course of the afternoon, the team works to produce vehicle geometry that best represents the initial concept. During the process, the Lehigh students can get direct feedback from their middle school customers while the Broughal students gain an appreciation for the effort and skill that goes into creating a solid model.
