Course Objectives To draw and manipulate 3D parametric modeling by using CAD software, to have ability to design and model multi-part and mechanical products based on solid modeling technical information.
Learning Outcomes The students who succeeded in this course;
  • Student will be able to create 3D solid models with using parametric design software.
  • Student will be understand and apply mechanical working principles during design processes and use backward interventions and revisions if it is necessary without re-modeling the product.
  • Student will be able to establish product assembles with using multiple components and drawing parts with or without referenced with linked parts.
  • Student will be able to analyze completed products and their parts with mechanical qualifications.
  • Student will be able to use solid and surface modelling features together to achieve best result.
  • Student will be able to create models for 3D prototyping and understand major features and technical necessities.
Course Description This course is for teaching students how to design multi-part and mechanical products with using solid parametric modelling software. Achieved skills and software features during the course will help them to solve mechanical and technical problems during the design processes with the help of parametric software features, backward interventions and revisions.
