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 class hours and three laboratory hours per week. Instructional Support Fee applies. NOTE: Utilizes Windows based software only. 3 credits Fall, Spring
