Using SolidWorks software, this course focuses on 3-D solid parametric modeling in an engineering design environment. Hands-on learning in basic sketch profiles with constraint based 2-D 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 3-D model to 2-D 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.
Prereq: CAD102 or EGR101.
