Parametric, three-dimensional solid modeling is the premiere design tool used around the world to create innovative product designs. This course develops the techniques necessary to model complex parts, surfaces, and assemblies with emphasis on using design tables and parametric databases to develop part and feature libraries. It pays special attention to creating models and assemblies that can be easily modified and changed and introduces kinematic, dynamic, and finite element analysis techniques as well as Geometric Dimensioning and Tolerancing (GD&T). The skills and techniques taught in this course are transferable to any parametric, three-dimensional design software.
