The aim of this subject is to provide the students with an introduction to computer aided design (CAD) and computer aided machining (CAM). They will use Fusion 360 to generate three dimensional models that will be printed on a 3D printer. Students will follow a design process to develop ideas into final products.
The student will be learning to draw on computers using Fusion 360 CAD drawing program. The students will develop skills in these programs to:
– Generate basic objects
– Generate complex objects
– Create and print orthogonal views of designs
– Develop the skills and knowledge required to prepare a CAD drawing for printing on a 3D printer
– Develop ideas, designs and drawings into physical objects that can be used
– Students will investigate 3D printing and its place in the world today
