CAD 180 - Solid Modeling II


Course Description:  

This course is designed to introduce complex solid geometry using sweeps, curves, planes and several other available options. Bottom Up and Top Down Assembly features will be used for applicable design projects. Hardware assembly for fasteners will be introduced. Sheet Metal Layout, Mold Designs and Finite Element Analysis are some areas to be introduced. Assembly animations and simulations will be used to enhance project evaluations and function. Students will be tasked with projects to imitate a real-world work environment and develop critical thinking skills. Students will create working prototypes of their projects. (2 hours lecture/2 hours lab)
Prerequisite(s): Completion of CAD 169
Note(s): N/A

Course Student Learning Outcomes:
  • Construct solid models, assemblies, and detail drawings using a feature-based parametric design CAD program, such as SolidWorks, while capturing design intent in the models.
  • Create families of parts and assemblies building multiple configurations.
  • Solve design problems in parts and assemblies at the intermediate level.
