Learn about CAD and how to use popular CAD software such as Inventor, Fusion 360, Blender and AutoCAD. Learn the fundamental skills required to model, render, simulate and animate. This course is for beginners and requires no prior knowledge about 3D design.
Students learn about the basics of CAD including universal tools and boolean operations. This introductory course also delves into more advanced topics including surface and freeform modelling as well as creating technical graphics. At the beginning of the course, we discuss the impact and need for CAD in our modern society, reinforcing the importance of these digital skills in industry.
Students also take time to create a CAD environment in order to produce realistic images of the models they have created. This introduces the use of common CAD file formats.
Projects are designed to challenge and engage students, allowing them to both develop and demonstrate their skills. Independent tasks allow you to gain confidence when using 3D tools. The course is completed with an assignment to assess your knowledge of CAD modelling.
For anyone interested in engineering, 3D design, game development or technology, this is an ideal first course for you.
Your instructor is a student studying a masters design and technology education and has a specialism in 3D computer modelling.
