Modeling, Prototyping, and Manufacturing
This course provides theory and hands-on application of the design process, 3D modeling, prototyping, and manufacturing to students with prior modeling experience or coursework. Building upon drafting fundamentals, students develop skill in computer-aided solid modeling, additive manufacturing, and conventional machining processes. Students develop and refine modeling skills, produce prototypes, enhance presentation models, and use simulation and 3D printing tools to solve design problems individually and in teams. Additional topics include problem identification, concept generation, project management, risk reduction, file translation, virtual/augmented reality (VR/AR), quality control, and Computer Numerical Control (CNC).
