Computer Aided Design
Personal development, work, and learning.
The Computer Aided Design and Drawing unit will provide students with the opportunity to design produce and evaluate sophisticated 3D solutions with industry standard CAD software.
Explore a range of product development using the CAD system.
Apply international drawing standards and systems used in professional work such as architecture, interior design, engineering and construction
Design, test and produce 3D prototypes using 3D printers and laser cutters
Learn how to use the CAD system to transfer data for 3D printing and CNC machining of final products
Present in their folio sophisticated rendered images to communicate product development and assembly
Autodesk Inventor is an industry standard 3D modelling and prototyping package which will allow students to create 3D prototypes, drawings and presentations. Student versions of the software will be available for home use to provide opportunity for skill development.
