Contact hours total
Introduces solid modeling software (computer aided drafting) used in design and manufacturing. Includes using the software to capture design intent through part development and creating assemblies with these parts. Adheres to engineering and manufacturing standards and formats.
1. Apply engineering and manufacturing standards in the preparation of technical mechanical drawings.
2. Demonstrate basic geometrical relationships: parallelism, perpendicularity, angularity, co-linearity and concentricity using standard measurement units used in industry, inches and millimeters, and expression of fractional and decimal values.
3. Model solid objects using standard computer aided design software proceeding from basic sketching techniques to the creation of solid features through the use of extrusions, cuts, rotations, patterns and sweeps.
4. Demonstrate a methodical and progressive use of computer aided design functions to capture the design intent of the solid model and to utilize parametric modeling in the creation of a solid model that can evolve with the design process.
5. Organize and manage part, sub-assembly, and assembly properties and relationships within a solid model drawing.
6. Create exploded configurations and animations of solid models with sub-assemblies.
