Introduction to Parametric Modeling Using SolidWorks (CAD240)
3.0 Semester Hours
Using SolidWorks software, this course focuses on 3D solid parametric modeling in an engineering design environment. Hands-on learning in basic sketch profiles with constraint based 2D shape control is studied. Part design, Boolean operations, placed features, parametric features, dimensions and constraints, design modification of solid part, analyzing and documentation of the part or parts are also covered. Bi-directional control of 3D model to 2D part drawing is studied. The use of rapid prototyping techniques for model creation and design, analysis and redesign are incorporated. Repeatable to a maximum of 12 semester hours; 3 semester hours may apply to a degree or certificate.
