Course Description:

Introduction to industry standards for graphical representation of objects and simulation of processes utilizing 2D presentations and 3D modeling using SOLIDWORKS.
The course will cover the following:
  • Identify basic dimensioning and tolerancing terminology and requirements.
  • Create common pictorial representations of objects used in industry such as orthographic views, section views, and auxiliary views.
  • Create 2-dimensional and 3-dimensional drawings of mechanical objects.
  • Perform elementary simulations of mechanical or thermal processes.
Topics Overview:
  • Engineering drafting, dimension and tolerancing
  • 3-dimensional drawing
  • 3D simulation
  • CAD design for manufacturing
NOTE: Please make sure to have SOLIDWORKS installed before you arrive. You will also need the add-in for Motion Analysis. If at all possible, please bring a Windows laptop instead of a Mac, as it is more complicated to get SolidWorks to work properly on a Mac, and technical support for Mac will not be available. It is also highly recommended that you bring a three-button mouse that has a middle scroll wheel, as it will make your drawing process much more efficient than using the touchpad of your laptop.
