The students will explore communication technology through the use of 3D Computer Aided Drafting. We use SolidWorks software to produce 3D renderings of objects and 3-view orthographic drawings of those renderings. It is a never ending problem solving learning process.
This course takes Computer Aided Drafting a step further. The student can design a house, (Chief Architect) design a new product, (SolidWorks, use the CNC machine or a combination of any or all.
CAD I is an introductory course into the world of communication through drafting. The course involves the use of both 2D and 3D software. The students will learn how to manipulate the software while completing 2 dimensional and 3 dimensional drawings. DWG editor will be used on the 2D drawings and 3D drawings will be done with the use of SolidWorks.
