PLAN 2

   
   
Teacher:   Date/Period: June 13th - Periods 2&3 
Subject: Technology Class: Year 8 
Topic: CAD/CAM project Time:
Context: Design and manufacture through the utilisation of CAD/CAM
Learning Objectives: The pupils will develop an understanding of Boxford CAD software and the use of grids in the drawing of their designs

They will learn to plan and carefully layout design ideas.

The importance of accuracy will be emphasised.

Resources: Computer software and hardware - Boxford CAD

Drawing equipment

Scaled Grid paper

Computer projector

Fretsaws.

Activities: The pupils will be shown how to layout there chosen design idea using Boxford CAD. Basic techniques will be demonstrated.

The pupils will be shown a 3D example of a design produced with proDesktop.

They will also be shown how to produce the same outcome via a more traditional route - using drawing equipment.

They will start drawing their designs, adding colour to enhance the overall quality. Explanatory notes will be added.

They will begin to produce a simple 3D model of their design following a demonstration of the fretsaw.

Differentiation:

 

The pupils will be given the opportunity to produce a number of designs and also the opportunity to attend the dinnertime/evening sessions for the extended use of CAD. (Especially through the use of proDesktop.)
Contribution to Core Skills:

 

Use of ICTó - CAD

Literacy - annotation added to drawings.

Numeracy - measuring using scaled grid.

Notes on Class:

 

 
Homework:

 

The pupils will complete the classwork at home. An extension will be the production of one of their ideas through the use of proDesktop software.
