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. Learn about 2D sketching, basic and intermediate 3D functions. Learn fundamental operations in SolidWorks necessary for any designer, drafter or engineer. Students will need to save their work to their local computer or a flash drive. Limit 10 students. CAD-116

Instructor: Jeff Stearns, BS

88347.  5 Sessions: 12.5 hours, CEU 1.25
Location: CCM Advanced Manufacturing and Engineering Center, AME 134

Time: 6-8:30 p.m., Tues, Sept 29-Oct 27

Cost: $399

SOLIDWORKS 2: ADVANCED

Prerequisite: SolidWorks 1 or prior SolidWorks experience.

Learn sketching techniques including 3D sketches and splines, 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. Students will need to save their work to their local computer or a flash drive. Limit 10 students. CAD-117

Instructor: Jeff Stearns, BS

88348.  5 Sessions: 12.5 hours, CEU 1.25
Location: CCM Advanced Manufacturing and Engineering Center, AME 134
Time: 6-8:30 p.m., Tues, Nov 10-Dec 8
Cost: $399

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

Instructor: Jefferson Cartano, MS

5 sessions: 10 hours, CEU 1.0

Next offered Spring 2021

Cost: $399

INTRODUCTION TO 3D PRINTING

This course is an introduction in to 3D printing. Students will use the CAD program SolidWorks to create 3D models that can be used in the 3D printing process. Upon completion of this course, students will have a better understanding of the 3D printing technologies and materials along with how CAD programs work with the 3D printing process. Students will get hands-on experience with 3D printers by designing their own model and printing it out on a 3D printer.  WDT-173.
