WorldSkills International

Autodesk and WorldSkills International support the goal of helping students develop high standards of competence and workplace skills.

Competitors in Skill 05 must use Inventor to develop the parts, assemblies, animations, and drawings of the design as it would be done in a commercial engineering department. A broad knowledge of Inventor is required to be a successful competitor in this skill.

Level 1 - Regionals

4-Cylinder Boxer Engine
Model multiple components and then assemble the Boxer Engine using your modeled parts, as well as some given parts. You will then need to produce an assembly drawing, exploded drawing, and two animations.

Level 2 - Nationals

6-Legged Robot
First, you will need to redesign a single part to fix a mechanical clasp, and produce a technical drawing to show the change you have made. You will then be required to modify the cover of the robot. You will then produce numerous rendered images and animations to showcase these changes.

Level 3 - International

Cardboard Box Assembly Line
Parts will need to be modeled from the given drawings. These will need to include the use of the frame generator. You will then need to create drawings for exploded views, isometric views, including balloons and parts list, and a flat pattern fabrication drawing. There is a large emphasis here on using presentation files to create advanced assembly animations.

Digger Arm Actuation Design
You will need to assemble the digger arm and then use your engineering knowledge to determine which stroke cylinders will be required from the set. You will then need to use iParts and iAssemblies for the different stroke cylinders. An advanced animation is required to show the full physical simulation of the digger arm as required by the competition parameters.

Digger Arm Fabrication

There are multiple parts that will need to be modeled using sheet metal. You will create an assembly  showing the Digger Arm. A technical drawing, including flat pattern, also needs to be produced. In addition, you will need to produce a fabrication assembly drawing.

Reverse Engineering
You will be tasked with modeling a component from a physical piece. In this instance, the model is provided and you will be required to create rendered images and a technical drawing, including surface symbols, GDT, and dimensions in order to manufacture the part.
