On the Study of Non-Engineering Students Applied Open Source for Learning Graphic Design Skills of Dynamic 3D Motocross Suspension Mechanism
The rapid establishment of current technology is dependent on the effective integration of interdisciplinary science. Hence the R & D persons with multiple domain skills are strongly required for most industries. Although, the skills training for students of Vocational-Technical College and general University cannot stratify with the above need for industry. Based on the fact of drawing is the common language of industry, the designer, manufacturer, or quality control and inspection personnel use the language to communicate to each other for solving operational problems. Therefore, the purpose of this work is to train non-engineering students can learn simple mechanical drawing skills and recognize drawings. The training includes using multimedia and 3D graphic technique to write a python (open source language) program for establishing a 3D interactive graphics of a motocross suspension mechanism. As results, the students can transform visual information of the topological structure of a suspension mechanism to the dynamic digital interactive graphic. The results also show this practical technical education and training can improve the ability of non-engineering students to meet the industrial requirements.
