ENGINEERING CAD 2
Engineering CAD II is for the experienced student who has already taken Engineering CAD I. In Engineering CAD II students build upon the engineering principals covered in CAD I. Students also transition from 2D CAD drawings (using AutoCAD 2017) to 3D CAD models using a new software program Inventor 2017. Students will use this 3D modeling software to design then 3D prototype their ideas using 3D printers.
In Engineering CAD 2 there are 4 quarterly projects Virtual Prototyping, Sumo Cars, Manufacturing (3D Printing), and C02 Dragsters. Developing skills in Inventor to aid design in the quarterly projects is mixed with other smaller activities between larger projects.
