Architectural Revit

This hands-on class covers the essentials of Revit Architecture from schematic design through construction documentation. It introduces the concepts of building information modeling (BIM) and the tools for parametric building design. You will learn how to add floors, walls and roofs to a model, as well as add and locate doors, windows and stairs.

AutoCAD

Jump-start your engineering career with basic drawing commands and editing concepts. Then move on to more complex processes such as polar tracking; layers, colors, lineweights and linetypes; object snap modes; crosshatching; dimensioning commands and styles; and prototype drawings. Go to the next level in topics such as productivity tools, including effective use of grips; enhanced tools for better layer management; object selection and grouping; and more.

CATIA

Learn to create, constrain and add intelligent dimensions to sketches. From sketches, features such as pads, fillets, chamfers and holes are created to form a 3-D part. Generative drafting is also covered which allows you to generate 2-D drawing views from a 3-D part. Dimensions are added to the views as a means of documenting the drafting. Other advanced topics cover drafting fundamentals, surfacing, assembly design, wireframe fundamentals, surfacing operations, simulation training and much more. Students are able to take home laptops with the simulator for a few weeks after course instruction.


We offer classroom instruction for CATIA and CATIA Advanced as well as continuing online education for the following courses:

CATIA V5 Assembly Design Advanced
XEGT-602
CATIA V5 Drafting Fundamentals
XEGT-603
CATIA V5 Simulation Training Online
XEGT-601
CATIA V5 Surfacing Introduction
XEGT-604
CATIA V5 Surfacing Operations
XEGT-605
CATIA V5 Wireframe Fundamentals
XEGT-606

Inventor

This course introduces parametric 3-D modeling using Inventor by Autodesk. Learn part modeling techniques, working with sketches, creating features, using work features and adding placed features to parts. Also covered are creating loft, sweep and split features, creating part drawings and assembly models, working with adaptive drawings, and managing model data. Prerequisite: While prior knowledge of working with 3-D is helpful, it is not required.
