MFG225G - Solid Modeling
Building on the introduction to Computer Aided Design (CAD) students received in ACM120G, this course will give students the opportunity to create and modify more complicated computer models of parts and assemblies. They will then use these models to produce blueprints of parts and assemblies and run simulations to test the parts in a digital model of their intended working environment. The course will also introduce students to Computer Aided Manufacturing (CAM). Finally students will use CAM software to define milling operations, tooling and toolpaths that will instruct a CNC machine to cut a part from a block of material.
