Solid Modelling and Technical Drawing, 7.5 Credits

In this course students are introduced to the principals of parametric Solid Modeling Design, also referred to as 3D CAD (Computer Aided Design). Focus is on practical modeling skills and to be able to apply and understand product definition elements in the field of mechanical engineering and product design.
The following topics are covered:

  • Modeling with basic geometric operations
  • Using auxiliary geometry such as reference planes, points, axes and coordinate systems
  • Applying design intent
  • CAD-model quality
  • Parametric design
  • Building assemblies from part models
  • Simple analysis such as volume, center of gravity and area calculations
  • Preparation of detailed drawings from modeled geometry
  • General technical drawing techniques such as views, cuts, dimensioning etc
  • The international tolerance system
  • Orientation on Geometric dimensioning and tolerancing (GD&T) and Model-based definition (MBD)
  • Examination and troubleshooting of solid models and drawings
  • Basic measurement technology
