SOLIDWORKS (DFTG 2340)
A computer-aided modeling course. Development of three-dimensional drawings and models from engineering sketches and orthographic drawings and utilization of three dimensional models in design work.
- Learning the basic SolidWorks Design process.
- Understanding SolidWorks concepts.
- Learning how to use SolidWorks interface.
- Schetching and editing items.
- Creating datum plans and datum axies.
- Creating sweeps and blends.
- Creating holes shells and drafts.
- Creating rounds and chamfers.
- Grouping, mirroring and copinng items.
- Creating patterns.
- Measuring and inspecting models.
- Assembling with constraints.
- Assembling with connections.
- Explodind assembles.
- Creating drawing annotations.
