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. Upon completion you have a strong understanding of this software with the ability to add floors, walls and roofs to a model, as well as add and locate doors, windows and stairs. Book included

AutoCAD

AutoCAD Level 1: Jump-start your engineering career with basic drawing commands and editing concepts. This course covers polar tracking; object properties; layers, colors, lineweights and linetypes; object snap modes; grip editing; crosshatching; the AutoCAD design center; dimensioning commands and styles; plotting; utility commands; and prototype drawings. Prerequisite: Good working knowledge of Windows required; Book not included

 

AutoCAD Level 2 – Production Environment: Take AutoCAD to the next level. This high energy course covers productivity tools including creating named views; effective use of grips; enhanced tools for better layer management; object selection and grouping; working across drawings; fields and tables; advanced features of blocks; creating attributes and dynamic blocks; advanced plotting techniques; managing sheet sets; and customization techniques that include creating custom user profiles, workspaces and tool palettes. Prerequisite: AutoCAD Level 1; Book not included

CATIA

CATIA Level 1 – Boot Camp: This hands-on, on-campus course introduces the fundamental concepts of CATIA for mechanical design. 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 also is 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 topics include the management of parts through the creation of an assembly model and how to assemble, move, constrain and analyze the assembly model. Bill-of-material list generation also is covered. No books required

 

CATIA Level 2 – Advanced Design: This course continues from where the assembly design fundamentals part of the online CATIA simulation course leaves off. Topics include managing the catalog browser; searching for and inserting parts from the catalog browser; learning how to use the assembly features toolbar; inserting existing products (subassemblies) into the product; learning how to use the constraint creation toolbar; creating stored scenes for the purpose of filtering off parts and assemblies; analyzing assemblies for interfaces, clearances and material properties; and properly saving new products, subassemblies and parts. No books required

Inventor

This course introduces parametric 3-D modeling using Inventor by Autodesk. Topics include getting acquainted with Inventor; 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. While prior knowledge of working with 3-D is helpful, it is not required. Prerequisite: AutoCAD Level 2 – Production Environment; Book included
