3D modeling software is used worldwide in professional settings like engineering, animation, product design, architecture, and more. Designing parts in 3D modeling environments allows you to develop an idea in full before you cut any material, and then either make parts automatically on computer-enabled tools (such as the CNC mills, routers, plasma cutters, and 3D printers available at Artisan’s Asylum) or develop a set of drawings that allow you or other people to create your parts from plans.
In this class, students will learn 2D sketching techniques, 3D modeling techniques for parts and assemblies, and 2D display of 3D models in drawings, using SolidWorks 2019. Students will have opportunities to model and recreate real parts and assemblies, create drawings that can be used in computer-controlled manufacturing equipment, and prepare files for 3D printing.
This is a good opportunity to learn how to use the software in our computer lab, then join as a member or day user to continue using the software and the machines needed to prototype your part.
