What is it like to study this course and how will I be assessed?
This course is for students who have completed Level 1 Parametric Modelling and would like to continue skill building in depth.
The majority of the course is hands on and you will work at your own pace using a series of prepared workbook style methods: these will include all of the necessary elements required to successfully achieve each task. Your tutor is there at all times to guide and support your learning.
You will have your own computer in a well-equipped modern CAD room within Exeter College’ Technology Centre.
During the build up activities you will be assessed by continual task completion which will be marked with written feedback.
You will then be given two timed practical assignments which will test competence against the scheme criteria.
When all drawing is completed and assessed, you will then be required to complete a short written question and answer paper based test which covers the knowledge requirements as mentioned in the previous section.
On completion of this course you will:
- Be able to use parametric modelling workstation safely
- Be able to create sketches
- Be able to create work features and use features
- Be able to create table driven parts and assemblies
- Understand motion and driven assembly constraints
- Be able to create a drawing layout to aid the interpretation of design intent
- Be able to create presentation quality displays of parts and assemblies
