Having successfully completed the course, the student will have achieved the following:
1. Draw views, two-dimensional sketches, in CAD environment (particularly in AutoCAD and Autodesk Inventor)
2. Import 2D AutoCAD file into Inventor environment and create the solid model of the object.
3. Create solid models of objects; objects in basic shapes, composite bodies, custom-built machine parts, building modules etc., particularly in AutoCAD and Autodesk Inventor environments. Import/export the files from/to other common solid model environments (Such as CATIA, Solid Works, SAT, Pro Engineer, Parasolid, etc.)
4. Draw the orthographic views of an object in CAD environment (particularly in Autodesk AutoCAD environment).
5. Create principle orthographic views of an object from the solid model (particularly in Autodesk Inventor and 3D AutoCAD environments).
6. Dimension the views, show some annotations, provide the size tolerance of functional features, and general tolerances for non-functional features.
7. Explain and interpret the dimensions and the associated tolerances, and some annotations.
8. Create auxiliary views,
9. Create sectional views.
10. Read orthographic views; i.e. visualize the 3- Dimensional model of the object shown to its orthographic views and create the solid model.
In short, having successfully completed this course, the student will be able to write and read the language of the industry, “Engineering Drawing” and to create the solid- model of a single part and its engineering drawings
