This course introduces the concepts and methods of 3D modeling using AutoCAD software. While wireframe, surface and solid modeling are covered, the emphasis is on creating and editing solid models. Solid models can be used for the virtual prototyping of parts and assemblies as well as architectural massing studies. The expectation is that students have current training/experience equivalent to intermediate level AutoCAD. AICO 2000 - AutoCAD 2 is recommended.
- No prerequisites are required for this course.
