Important Information with regard the DCG Leaving Cert Project

This project is completed in two parts:

1) Investigation of an existing artefact and completed SolidWorks model of existing artefact.

2) Redesign or new concept design of similar above artefact with completed SolidWorks model.

The overall project is completed in 9 outputs. I have given initial deadlines for each output to your son/daughter so that I can give feedback so each output can be improved to achieve best possible results.

These deadlines are listed below:

  • Output 1 22/09/2017
  • Output 2 06/10/2017
  • Output 3 13/10/2017
  • Output 4 17/11/2017
  • Output 5 17/11/2017
  • Output 6 17/11/2017
  • Output 7 01/12/2017
  • Output 8 15/12/2017
  • Output 9 15/12/2017

At this stage Output’s 1 to 3 should be completed and your son/daughter should be beginning to model his/her project on SolidWorks. All SolidWorks modelling can only be completed in school, so any investigation corrections or redesign will need to be completed at home from now on to allow for best use of time in relation to SolidWorks modelling.

Yours Sincerely,

Mr. Dan McSweeney, DCG Teacher.
