Many graduates from engineering programs find employment in design areas where solid modelling software is used for design purposes and to produce working drawings. It is therefore appropriate for students to be instructed not only in the use of solid modelling software but also those modelling techniques that best facilitate design and preparation of subsequent working drawings.
This course will provide opportunities for students to develop skills in the use of feature based, parametric solid modelling. The course also develops the student's skills and confidence in those techniques and principles deemed to be essential for solid modelling. Furthermore, it aims to develop their awareness of the importance of modelling as a design, drafting, communications and manufacturing tool.
Course learning outcomes
The course objectives define the student learning outcomes for a course. On completion of this course, students should be able to:
- construct any given geometrical shape, conic section and develop any surface;
- understand general solid modelling techniques employed in design and manufacture;
- demonstrate proficiency in developing a solid model for an engineering product or device using a 'feature based' CAD system;
- produce engineering assembly drawings and working detail drawings for an engineered product or device from a CAD solid model;
- propose a solution to a given engineering problem which requires the production of a solid model and subsequent working drawings.

Student workload expectations
To do well in this subject, students are expected to commit approximately 10 hours per week including class contact hours, independent study, and all assessment tasks. If you are undertaking additional activities, which may include placements and residential schools, the weekly workload hours may vary.
