Introduction to Parametric Modeling Using Inventor (CAD241)
3.0 Semester Hours
Using Inventor 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 parts, 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.
