Designers and manufacturers in virtually every industry use computer‐aided design systems to create engineering design solutions. In this one‐semester course, students will master the basics of CAD software: creating points, lines, other geometric forms, isometric drawings, and 3D models. Students will learn how to translate initial concepts into functional designs and 3D walkthroughs. Students will explore career options for engineers and CAD designers in this hands‐on introductory‐level course.
This course includes instruction on how to create standardized drawings using basic CAD tools; interpreting 3D and 2D views of objects; producing orthographic, auxiliary, and section drawings; and creating a set of working drawings meant to be viewed by clients.
This course is aligned to the Washington State CTE Drafting and Design Technology framework and the Texas State TEKS Computer‐Aided Drafting framework. This course is partially aligned to the Washington State CTE Engineering Design I framework and Project Lead the Way’s Introduction to Engineering Design framework.
