CAD 2200 Computer Aided Design I

This course is intended to prepare the student for the role of engineering design as it relates to Computer Aided Drafting/Design. This course will teach the student to implement the use of the 3D solid modeling CAD package SolidWorks. Students will learn the key skills and knowledge required to design models starting with 2D sketching, solid part modeling, assembly creation, and drawing production. Emphasis will be given to design intent. The student will use the design process to plan and develop a design for manufacture. The student will prepare models of this design to be prototyped by 3D printing. Production drawings of this design will be plotted and checked. Lecture, 2 hours; lab, 2 hours.
