CAD 2843 - Parametric Solid Modeling


Credits: 3
3L
This course will introduce the student to AutoDesk Inventor software with an emphasis on the principles of feature-based solid modeling within constraint parameters. Parametric means that geometric definitions of the design such as dimensions can be varied or edited at any time in the design process, automatically updating the design. Students will learn to isolate and “sketch” concept ideas, adding dimensions to constrain the feature to design requirements. Students will learn to extrude, revolve, and sweep the 2D sketch to create the base solid, and “place” features such as fillets and holes to identify and define feature relationships to complete the design. Additionally, students will learn to conduct analysis of designs to meet strength, volume, range of motion, and other design requirements. Pre/Co-requisites CIS 1103  or permission of the instructor.
