EM 172 – Manufacturing Processes and Modeling

Course lecturer :

Dr. Mona M. Salem

Course assistant :

Eng. Esraa Ahmed Eng. Nagham Ahmed Eng. Hager Nagy

Course objectives :

– Craft three dimensional scale models that are used in a variety of situations. – Use information and preliminary designs or blueprints to bring an idea into reality. – Create 3D models based on the architectural initial design or blueprint.

Course description :

Students will learn to prepare a massing model of many projects. A series of practical workshops during which the different modeling techniques will be practiced is offered. Students\’ design and make three-dimensional (3D) scale models, usually working in one of the following areas: • Prototype models of new products prior to sale. • Scale models such as construction developments (architectural model making). • Visual special effects for exhibitions, museums, film, TV and theatre. Depending on their area of specialism, they use a variety of techniques including laser cut, wood machining, metal working and sculpting with clay, finishing processes such as hand coloring and spray painting.
