This 66 page booklet (pdf) follows on from part A and covers the rest of the learning aim A syllabus including material properties, power transmission, and manufacturing processes. There are lots of pages that repeat in format so that students can draw, research and learn about;

Sand, die and investment casting.
Machining including turning, milling and drilling.
Injection, extrusion, blow and rotational moulding.
Slip, tape and press forming ceramics.
Press forming, stamping, drop forging metals and backward/forward impact extrusion.
3D printing.
Compression moulding (metals and thermosets).
Laying up.
Soldering, brazing.
MIG, TIG, Oxy welding.

This is a "build your own" textbook, its just activities. My students complete notes in lesson time and then type them up in study periods... Some haven't started yet but they'll have too soon. I'm hoping they will re-visit their notes are part of the controlled assessment "research". I've also started to get them to complete the research tasks before lessons so that they have examples of products before we go through the processes. This booklet is to help me as much as them because I would hate to forget to include teaching a process to find the design brief included something I hadn't covered with them!

I'm going to look into the other learning aims this term.... Hopefully!

Sorry it's a pdf but I've paid for license for the images in some of the activities!
