What is it like to study this course and how will I be assessed?

This course is for students who have a good appreciation for computer aided design/drafting and would like to transition into ‘Parametric Modelling’ techniques. Completion of prior CAD qualifications is not mandatory, but the need to have a good working knowledge of CAD software and designing generally is required.

What topics will I study?

  • Apply appropriate commands to set the 3D modelling environment
  • Create and use working planes at any required position within 3D space
  • Define and use co-ordinate points at any position within 3D space
  • Apply appropriate commands to construct the whole or part of a 3D model using the best available method – surface or solid modelling
  • Apply appropriate commands to modify 3D solid objects
  • Apply appropriate commands to perform 3D operations on existing objects
  • Apply appropriate commands to manipulate a 3D model
  • Apply appropriate commands to view 3D models in a variety of display formats
  • Print/plot/export 3D models.

What are the entry requirements?

Completion of prior CAD qualifications is not mandatory, but the need to have a good working knowledge of CAD software and designing generally is required.

What facilities are there?

A new £8.3 million Technology Centre at Monkerton opened in September 2012. The centre combines the training and teaching of aerospace, engineering and automotive students with access to state of the art equipment within world class facilities. The CAD/CAM Suite includes 25 computers running the latest versions of AutoCAD, Inventor, Solid Works, EdgeCAMand SIEMENS 828d/840d control. You will also have access to a learning resource centre.

 

What can the course lead on to?
