Manufacturing w/Solid Modeling-2D
This course offers instruction on individual computer workstations in a computer lab. This computer-aided drafting (CAD) instruction uses Solid Modeling software that is capable of creating 3D models and manufacturing drawings. In this course you will spend half of the time creating 3D models using 2 and 2.5D features while exploring the concepts of working in 3D space. Once the solid models are created students will import the solid models into CAM (Computer-aided manufacturing) software and utilize machining concepts to produce manufactured part using 2.5D programming methods such as pocketing, contouring & drilling for milling machines as well as turning, facing, grooving and threading for turning centers.
