Design of 3D CAD solid models for
manufacture of mechanical parts and
products, with simulation and analysis of
assembly processes. Overview of digital
manufacturing systems, including
manufacturing simulation applications,
product lifecycle management, and use of
resource planning / database systems.
Create sketches and 3D solid models of
various manufactured objects using CATIA.
Learn how to build models from reference
elements and to create geometry features.
Create 2D drawings from solid models.
Understand the advantages of parametric
and solid modeling and its characteristics.
Gain an understanding of digital
manufacturing applications and how they are
being utilized by modern companies and
businesses. These applications include 3D
CAD, collaborative Product Lifecycle
Management (PLM), manufacturing
simulation, Virtual Reality (VR) modeling and
animation, and 3D viewers for
communication and production work
