Computer-aided design (CAD) deals with a variety of topics, including creating simple drawings to 3D visualization of engineering design. This course covers the basic elements of CAD, types and application of software used in design, versatility of CAD for making quick design changes, and comparing alternative designs. Students will apply their newfound skills to explore several design and fabrication techniques, and prototype their design using basic shop tools, laser cutters and 3D printers. Students must be present for the mandatory safety training taught on the first day to continue in the course.
