CADD-130 Parametric Modeling Fundamentals

Credits 3 / 4 Contact Hours
Pre-requisite: Placement into ACRD 080 ; Minimum 2.0 in CADD 120  
A lecture/laboratory course which introduces fundamental concepts of Parametric Modeling applications as it relates to design topics. The course is designed to develop sound fundamentals in creating 3D parametric models using a CADD based design environment. The course will include sketching geometric and dimensional constraining techniques and applications with regard to product design intent and use.

Course Outcomes
