Course Description: This third course in Computer Aided Design (CAD) uses the latest release of AutoDesk software products in mechanical, architectural and civil engineering design. Students perform a number of hands-on projects using Inventor (parametric 3D-solid modeling), AutoCAD Architect (3D architectural design), and Civil 3D software.  These projects cover general 3D design and detailing problems related to the above-mentioned disciplines.

Course Goals: Upon successful completion of this course, students should be able to do the following:

  1. proficiently use AutoCAD, a general-purpose CAD system;
  2. utilize Inventor, a parametric 3D-solid modeling package, to design and detail mechanical parts and assembly;
  3. complete architectural design projects, including floor plans, profiles, sections, and detailing, using  AutoCAD Architect; and
  4. proficiently use Civil 3D software, a highly-specialized software for civil engineers and surveyors.
