Computer-aided drafting - ccadcoc this program prepares the student for an entry-level position as a design detailer using solidworks software students who complete the required course of study in cad are prepared for employment as a computer-aided drafting/ designer or mechanical detailer. She has taught computer-aided drafting (cad), engineering graphics, and manufacturing technology for more than 20 years prior to working as a cad facilitator, dr scribner worked in the public sector as a lead drafter and was the owner and operator of her own cad company for 22 years.
Fig 1, for instance, shows a drawing generated from the solid model shown in fig 2with its dimensions generated by automatic dimensioning function of one of current advanced computer-aided drafting system it can be seen that some dimensions are not in correct positions, and some cannot satisfy the requirements from datum feature and. Mechanical engineers (asme) drafting and design standards will be taught and reinforced as students prepare drawings in both 2-d and 3-d using autocad, keycreator, and mastercam applications software. Design and fabrication 2202 introduces students to some of the more advanced design and manufacturing tools used today including 2d and 3d computer aided drafting and design (cadd) software, 3d computer aided manufacturing (cam) software, and computer numerical control (cnc) machining.
Remember it is the subject and correct use of computer-aided design (cad), sometimes referred to as 3d cad, that allows the creation of good, reusable engineering design models and drawings. Laboratory assignments include producing piece part technical drawings utilizing industry standards students will also be briefly introduced to a cad program to experiment with computer-aided drafting at the end of the course. The 2d basics will include menus, tabs, toolbars, drop-down lists, the command line, drawing space, layers, line types, and hatching as well as creating, saving and opening files students will draw multiple views, isometrics, sections and auxiliary views of objects, including dimensions.
