AutoCAD Level 1: Basic 2-D Drawing
This course is an introduction for new AutoCAD software users who require comprehensive training. It incorporates the features, commands, and techniques for creating, editing, annotating and printing 2D drawings with AutoCAD. The primary objective of this course is to give the new AutoCAD user a comprehensive foundation that they can build upon. Students will get hands-on experience working with real world drawing examples and exercises in a supervised CAD lab. CAD-111.
AutoCAD Level 2: Beyond Basic
This course continues to build on the concepts introduced in the Basic 2D Drawing class. It is designed for the AutoCAD user looking to advance their knowledge of AutoCAD. To comprehend and utilize features, commands, and techniques for becoming more productive and efficient when creating, editing, annotating, and printing drawings with AutoCAD. Advanced AutoCAD applications to be covered: Dynamic Blocks, Attributes, Fields, External References, Advanced Layer Management tools, Object Linking and Embedding (OLE), Raster Images and PDFs, with an introduction to customization and 3D. Students will get hands-on experience working with real world drawing examples and exercises in a supervised CAD lab. CAD-120.
AutoCAD Level 3: Advanced
For the seasoned AutoCAD user looking to master the more advanced features and tools in AutoCAD, the course will focus on Parametrics, creating and editing Dynamic Blocks, Advanced Layer Management tools with External References and working with the Sheet Set Manager. Configuring CAD Standards and Program Customization, Menus, Macros, Lisp routines and Tool Palettes will be covered. Also, included is an introduction to 3D modeling. CAD-115.
AutoCAD Civil 3D
For professionals already experienced in AutoCAD, a healthy knowledge of AutoCAD Civil 3D is a real resume booster and ups your appeal to prospective employers. For current engineering students, especially seniors, this is a great addition as you seek internship opportunities. For current industry professionals who need to update their knowledge, but cannot take time away from the work schedule, or anyone else that may be looking to learn or to just "brush up" their skillset, this course is designed with you in mind." Topics Covered: - Learn the AutoCAD Civil 3D user interface., - Create points, point styles and label styles, work with point groups, - Create, edit, view, and analyze surfaces, - Create data shortcuts, - Create and edit alignments, - Create profiles, and profile views, - Create assemblies, corridors, and intersections, - Create cross-sections, - Create grading solutions CAD-112.
SolidWorks is a parametric computer-aided design and engineering (CAD/CAE) solid modeling package. Learn about 2D sketching, basic and intermediate 3D functions. Learn fundamental operations in SolidWorks necessary for any designer, drafter or engineer. Students will need to save their work to their local computer or a flash drive. CAD-116.
Solidworks 2: Advanced
PREREQUISITE: SolidWorks 1 or prior SolidWorks experience.
Learn sketching techniques including 3D sketches and splines, advanced modeling techniques such as multi-body parts and assemblies, sheet metal parts, mold cavities from parts, animation, display states, renderings and finite element analysis (FEA). SolidWorks has excellent surface modeling tools, and students will use them to create complex, free-form shapes. Students will need to save their work to their local computer or a flash drive. CAD-117.
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.
