I. COURSE DESCRIPTION
Focuses on teaching students the design of parts by parametric solid modeling. Topics covered will include, but not be limited to, sketch profiles, geometric and dimensional constraints, 3-D features, model generation by extrusion, revolution and sweep, and the creation of 2-D drawing views that include sections, details and auxiliary. Students will also be introduced to 3D printing.
II. STUDENT PERFORMANCE OBJECTIVES:
Upon completion of this course, the student should be able to demonstrate an understanding of the following drafting topics:
