DRFT 108 - 3-D Geometric Modeling/SolidWorks®
3 credits (2 lecture, 4 lab)
This course implements the latest version of SolidWorks® parametric 3D software into the design process of mechanical components. Students will generate design tables from Excel spreadsheets to drive the design. Students will learn advanced functionality of the software while exploring alternative design solutions to local industry case studies. Select parts will be chosen to create a complete set of documentation and a physical model using advanced stereo-lithography and 3D printing technology. Spring semester only.
Prerequisite(s): DRFT 120 or permission of instructor.
