AUTOCAD CIVIL 3D

Prerequisite: A working knowledge of AutoCAD

For professionals already experienced in AutoCAD, a healthy knowledge of AutoCAD Civil 3D is a real resume booster and ups your appeal to prospective employers. For current engineering students, this is a great addition as you seek internship opportunities. Also great for current industry professionals who need to update their knowledge but cannot take time away from work, or anyone else that may be looking to learn or to just “brush up” their skillset. Useful for civil engineering design, analysis, surveying, and mapping. Topics covered: AutoCAD Civil 3D user interface, create points, point styles and label styles, work with point groups, create, edit, view and analyze surfaces, create data shortcuts, create and edit alignments, create profiles and profile views, assemblies, corridors and intersections, cross-sections and grading solutions.  CAD 112

SOLID MODELING CAD

SOLIDWORKS 1: INTRODUCTION

SolidWorks is a parametric computer-aided design and engineering (CAD/CAE) solid modeling package. Using SolidWorks, users can generate three kinds of interconnected files: parts, assemblies and drawings. Through the SolidWorks user interface, students will learn about 2D sketching, basic 3D functions (extrude, revolve, etc.), and intermediate 3D functions (sweep, loft, etc.). Lear fundamental operations in SolidWorks necessary for anuy designer, drafter, or engineer.

Each topic will have an associated exercise for a hands-on understanding of the material, and each exercise will build upon previous exercises. At the end of the course, students will have a physical data package (models and drawings) that will show proficiency with the software. This data package may also be used for job interviews as evidence of proficiency. CAD-116

Time: 6-8:30 p.m., Thurs, Feb 6-March 5

Location: Sheffield Hall, SH 162

Cost: $399

SOLIDWORKS 2: ADVANCED

Prerequisite: SolidWorks 1 or prior SolidWorks experience.

SolidWorks 2 is intended for intermediate level users and will cover sketching techniques including 3D sketches and splines. Topics include advanced modeling techniques such as multi-body parts and assemblies, sheet metal parts, mold cavities from parts, animation, display states, renderings and finite element analysis (FEA). SolidWorks has excellent surface modeling tools, and students will use them to create complex, free-form shapes. Like in SolidWorks 1, students will be able to save models made in class as proof of advanced solid modeling proficiency.  CAD-117

INVENTOR – SOLID MODELING CAD

Inventor is intended for the prospective designer, inventor, prototyper, draftsperson, test fixture designer, advanced manufacturing technician, operator or engineer.  This ten-hour course on harnesses the power of the Inventor software tool to realize the 3D and 2D modeling of physical components as well as to introduce Inventor’s capabilities in assisting in the design and analysis of assemblies.

According to Autodesk, ‘With Inventor software, engineers can integrate 2D AutoCAD drawings and 3D data into a single digital model, creating a virtual representation of the final product that enables them to validate the form, fit, and function of the product before it is ever built.’

Each topic will have an associated exercise for a hands-on understanding of the material, and each exercise will build upon previous exercises. At the end of the course, students will have a physical data package (models and drawings) that will show proficiency with the software. This data package may also be used for job interviews as evidence of proficiency.  CAD 114
