Advanced CAD 6 credits
Course ContentsThe course teaches elaborate handling of CAD-system for the creation of production specifications on an advanced level. Products specifications include injection molding or other production methods. The specifications encompass all aspects of production such as tapers and parting lines. The parts should be specified in engineering drawings complying with applicable industrial standards.
In the course, the prediction of which parameters that are governing for a design will be identified. Thus, a purposeful structure of parameters may be created in the CAD-models maximizing their value in the product realization process.
The course covers the following topics:
- Advanced CAD functions such as variable sweeps.
- Surface modelling in CAD
- Theoretical background to the CAD-systems
- Advanced engineering drawings
- Identification of governing parameters in designs
- Structure of parameters in CAD-models
