DDSN 135 - Solidworks

Credit(s): 3

This course presents the fundamental skills and concepts to build parametric model parts and assemblies and make simple drawings of those parts and assemblies. This course is designed as a process-based training approach emphasizing the processes and procedures necessary to complete a particular task. By utilizing case studies to illustrate these processes, the student learns the necessary commands, options, and menus in the context of completing a design task within SOLIDWORKS. An introduction to the transferability and compatibility of SOLIDWORKS, MASTERCAM, GIBSCAM, and Pro-Engineer software is provided.  The course also includes an introduction to 3D printing. (Fall and Spring Semesters)

Course Learning Outcomes: Upon completion of the course, students will be able to
  • Explain the fundamentals and interfaces of Solidworks.
  • Explain the design philosophy of Solidworks.
  • Create and modify parts in Solidworks.
  • Apply dimensions and relations Create datum features, apply feature duplication forms, and break down feature sequences.
  • Create drawings and generate cross sections.
  • Create assemblies.
  • Demonstrate an understanding of the transition and interface of related CAD/CAM programs including MASTERCAM, GIBSCAM, and PRO-ENGINEER Describe weldments basics.
  • Create a project for 3D output.
