CAD 111 : Mechanical Design with Solidworks
This course utilizes the latest PC-based associative, parametric solid modeling software (SolidWorks) to produce three-dimensional models of mechanical objects and assemblies. Topics include sketching a part feature, providing dimensions and constraints to tie the features together, converting a sketch into a solid object, and creating and editing full assemblies. Working drawings are created from the part design, including a variety of views and dimension styles. The course continually emphasizes mechanical design principles using the CAD system. In addition, students learn the integration of Computer-Aided Manufacturing (CAM) with CAD to enhance the understanding of the design to manufacturing process. Prerequisite: CAD 101 is recommended. Two lecture hours and three laboratory hours per week. Instructional Support Fee applies. NOTE: Utilizes Windows based software only.
- Utilize Solidworks parametric solid modeling software to demonstrate various parametric modeling functions and assembly mating features.
- Create detail drawings following current engineering standards ANSI Y14.1 utilizing standard, detail and sectional views.
- Construct various student templates with standard view, completed title and revision blocks for various paper sizes.
