CAD 233 - Intermediate Solidworks

Credits: 4
Application of advanced engineering skills to create complex detail drawings of machined and cast metal parts from engineering sketches with emphasis on ASME standards. Includes research and use of various reference materials and vendor resources and media selection. Some time will be given to introduce students to stress analysis routines within the program.

Enrollment Requirement: CAD 133  or instructor consent.

Course Outcomes:
Students who successfully complete this class will be able to:

  1. Create new complex parts based on current model assembly.
  2. Edit the value of a feature dimension to rebuild and reshape model accordingly; including global dimensions.
  3. Show model in motion to view for interferences between interactive parts.
  4. Create basic stress studies to review proper part design.
  5. Reach out to industry created parts and integrate them into current design practices.

Program Outcomes
  1. Apply computer and engineering office software for documentation, communication and approval within an engineering office environment.
  2. Apply current ASME Y14.5, machining and AWS symbology for industry production and documentation.
  3. Create accurate solid model computer files to output designs to 2-D documentation, 3-D printing, and CNC machines, using feature based solid modeling or Boolean based construction methods.

College-wide Outcomes
  • Critical Thinking -Critical thinking finds expression in all disciplines and everyday life. It is characterized by an ability to reflect upon thinking patterns, including the role of emotions on thoughts, and to rigorously assess the quality of thought through its work products. Critical thinkers routinely evaluate thinking processes and alter them, as necessary, to facilitate an improvement in their thinking and potentially foster certain dispositions or intellectual traits over time.
  • Responsibility - Responsibility encompasses those behaviors and dispositions necessary for students to be effective members of a community. This outcome is designed to help students recognize the value of a commitment to those responsibilities which will enable them to work successfully individually and with others.
  • Quantitative and Symbolic Reasoning - Quantitative Reasoning encompasses abilities necessary for a student to become literate in today’s technological world. Quantitative reasoning begins with basic skills and extends to problem solving.
