Introduction to CAD, 2D & 3D
This course is designed to give an overview into Computer Aided Design (CAD) using both 3D & 2D design methods. The skills learned are generic and easily transferable to any modern parametric CAD system.
Part Funded £300
Who should attend?
The course is aimed at Technical personnel, Engineers and Managers who wish to gain a deeper understanding and improve their fundamental knowledge of Computer Aided Design (CAD), including the relationships between 3D Modelling & 2D Engineering Drawing.
This course provides an introduction to Computer Aided Design, where delegates will acquire increased knowledge of 3D & 2D design including strategies such as "Resilient Modelling", which is applicable to all modern parametric CAD systems.
Learning outcomesAfter completing this module course delegates will be able to demonstrate both improved knowledge and increased understanding of the principles of Computer Aided Design and will be capable of applying this new understanding to critically evaluate engineering CAD design issues in both 3D & 2D on return to their home site.
