EG T 205 Transition From 2-D CAD to Solid Modeling (1)

This is a one credit course in parametric solid modeling. Students will learn how to do basic geometry creation as well as how to create and use reference geometry such as points and planes. Duplicating features though the use of patterns and mirroring will be covered. More advanced geometry creation such as sweeps and blends are introduced, as well as the use of top-down as well as bottom-up modeling techniques. Assembly modeling and detailing topics are covered. Evaluation is done through both weekly homework assignments and a final, comprehensive project. This course is designed to bring students (especially transfer students who already have taken EG T 201) up to a base level of proficiency on the specific CAD package used in MET 306.
