SolidWorks Solid Modeling CAD

SolidWorks is a widely used computer-aided design and engineering (CAD/CAE) package. Solid modeling topics include: sketching, basic 3D functions (extrude, revolve, etc.), advanced 3D functions (sweep, loft, etc.), assembly creation and an introduction to finite element analysis (FEA). Translate 3D solid models into 2D technical data packages for manufacturing. Learn fundamental and advanced functions in SolidWorks necessary for any designer, drafter, or engineer. Each topic will have an associated exercise for a hands-on understanding of the material, and each exercise will build upon previous exercises. At the end of the course, students will have a physical data package (models and drawings) that will show proficiency with the software. This data package may also be used for job interviews as evidence of proficiency. CAD-113.


Course usage information

Inventor Solid Modeling CAD

Inventor is intended for the prospective designer, inventor, prototyper, draftsperson, test fixture designer, advanced manufacturing technician, operator or engineer. This ten-hour course harnesses the power of the Inventor software tool to realize the 3D and 2D modeling of physical components as well as to introduce Inventor's capabilities in assisting in the design and analysis of assemblies. Each topic will have an associated exercise for a hands-on understanding of the material, and each exercise will build upon previous exercises. At the end of the course, students will have a physical data package (models and drawings) that will show proficiency with the software. This data package may also be used for job interviews as evidence of proficiency. CAD-114.
