DNB313 Advanced Computer-Aided Design

This unit develops your knowledge and skill in Computer Aided Design (CAD). Its aim is to strengthen knowledge about the implementation of CAD in a design context as well as skills in generating CAD output in a form that accurately communicates design intent. In particular it will focus on building skills using Solidworks, a 3D parametric modeller. Designers need to be able to communicate their 3D design ideas in an accurate way to others in order to have them manufactured. CAD is the primary way that this is done. Therefore good CAD skills are an essential skill, sought after by employers and very useful for design communication in subsequent units, especially the capstone unit.
