AkDA - Engineering Design 1

High School

Designers and manufacturers in virtually every industry use computer‐aided design systems to create engineering design solutions. In Part 1 of this one‐semester course, students will master the basics of CAD software: creating points, lines, geometric forms, isometric drawings, and 3D models. Students will learn how to translate initial concepts into functional designs and 3D walkthroughs. Students will explore career options for engineers and CAD designers. In Part 2 of this course, students will continue to develop the engineering and computer‐aided design skills gained in Part 1. Students will continue to explore the principles of 2D and 3D modeling and design using Creo™ Elements/Direct™ Modeling Personal Edition, and build on the math and reasoning skills essential to engineering. The hands‐on experience students will gain through completing design challenges, product analyses, and more will equip them with the tools engineers need to succeed. This course includes instructions on how to create standardized drawings using basic CAD tools; interpret 3D and 2D views of objects; produce orthographic, auxiliary, and section drawings; create a set of working drawings meant to be viewed by clients; manipulate both 2D and 3D objects in a 3D environment; perform in‐depth product analysis; and dimension objects. This course also covers an overview of the design process and the mathematical skills used in 2D and 3D geometry.
