This course is an introduction to 3D modeling and printing techniques using Solid works and a 3D Printer. The student will print 3D ABS plastic models from 3D parametric solid parts created from sketches and applied features. Laboratory required. (A special fee will be assessed.

CADD 220 - RENDERING AND ANIMATION 3(5)
This is an advanced course for students interested in computer rendering and animation. Students learn the techniques used in rendering and animation of CAD models for use in mechanical design, architectural presentation, game development and other types of presentation. Students develop 3D virtual scenes and create renderings and dynamic animations for virtual walk-throughs, fly-bys, game development, or presentation graphics. (A special fee will be assessed.)

Prerequisite: CADD 111

CADD 235 - DETAILING AND DIMENSIONING 3(5)
Building on the concepts learned in Introduction to Computer Aided Drafting, this course covers an introduction to 3D modeling, orthographic projection, isometric and oblique projections, sectional views, auxiliary views, dimensioning and toleranceing, and threads and fasteners as they relate to two dimensional detail and assembly drawings. Laboratory required. (A special fee will be assessed.)
