Advanced CAD

  • Advanced CAD

    An advanced level course designed to further the student’s experience in computer-aided drafting (CAD) and design and its related fields. Students will learn parametric modeling to create 3-D virtual models of mechanical parts and utilize those parts to generate the necessary drawings learned in CAD I. Students will also gain exposure to manufacturing through the use of a 3- D printer. This is a career-oriented course, therefore, students will be expected to exhibit good judgment and a professional attitude and work ethic at all times. This is an excellent course for students interested in visual communications and engineering careers.

    PREREQUISITE: Successful completion of CAD I/Architecture CAD with a 2.0.

    NOTE: This class is a senior year math credit.

    CAD students may choose to join MITES.

    Advanced CAD II

    Students will be able to extend their learning of parametric modeling and computer aided design through reverse-engineering an assembly and creating the virtual 3d model in the parametric modeling software. The model can be utilized to generate drawings, renderings, or animations of the assembly. This is a career-oriented course, therefore, students will be expected to exhibit good judgment and a professional attitude and work ethic at all times.
