Robots use mechanisms to perform a rich variety of tasks and while building a robot in high school can be a lot of fun and a great learning experience, this alone will not prepare you for the introductory class in Mechanical Engineering at the University level.  To move to the next level students need to understand mechanism, 3D CAD and motion.  This is the foundation of Robotics design and countless other areas concerning machine design.  Understanding mechanisms and how they work is a critical part of Mechanical Engineering and Design. This class takes a look at various types of mechanism used to build machines and robots.

Generative Modeling – Designer Based Structural Optimization

Topology Optimization - Creating Optimal Next Generation Designs with 3D CAD - Solid Edge - Solidworks - Blender - FEA

Generative Design is a radical departure from conventional
design practices and is by definition the creation of shapes decided by a set of
rules, or in other words, software algorithms.

In essence the 3D CAD designer is no longer the primary creator,
taking the position of a “problem framer” specifying up front design goals such
as design space, constraints and keep out areas.  The computer software then decides where
material should be removed.  Constraints
define, then decide the structural results by generating an optimized part that
look eerily similar to creations found in nature.  The potential benefits are striking.  This class will teach you how to get started with Topology Optimization.
