CAD 169 - Solid Modeling I


Course Description: This course is designed to provide students with the basic skills required to develop three-dimensional CAD solid models. Using feature-based parametric design principles, students will become familiar with the process used to develop and edit 3D solid models and to generate 2D drawings from the model. The creation of parts and assemblies will be explored. Students will employ state-of-the-art computer-aided design software packages such as SolidWorks and Inventor to generate the solid models.  Students will be tasked with projects to imitate a real-world work environment and develop critical thinking skills. Students will be introduced into the basics of prototyping processes. 2 hours lecture/2 hours lab.
Prerequisite(s): Completion of EGR 101 or current enrollment in CAD 110
Note(s): N/A

Course Student Learning Outcomes:
  • Apply principles of technical drawings to create different 3D models.
  • Utilize SolidWorks surfacing features and methods to create complex solid geometry.
  • Apply ANSI drafting standards to different type of projects.
  • Demonstrate problem-solving skills to master the creation of drawings and assemblies.
