Parametric CAD

MUO-E5047 Parametric CAD, 3 ECTS

During the course the student is introduced to the basics of parametric 3D CAD modeling.

Parametric (associative, feature-based, solid) CAD modelers are used in design, engineering and manufacturing. Using the same software throughout the product development process brings a lot of benefits.

A parametric, feature-based model can be easily edited at any time. The models are also associative, which means that changes in a single part can be automatically updated to an assembly containing even thousands of parts, thus saving time.

Parametric CAD software packages often have a broad set of tools and features ranging from basic part modeling to technical drawings and from sheet metal design to simulations.

After the course the student can:

Use the basic drawing & modeling tools
Model simple parts
Create assemblies & drawings
Design utilizing the basics of parametrization, relations & links
