Course Description

The basic operations of 3D-CAD (Computer Aided Designing) with CATIA V5 and the imaging of a solid shape from the drawing are taught.

Course Objectives

The basic operations of 3D-CAD required for mechanical engineers are studied. And the example of problems in 3D-modeling based on the models in the real machinery industry are solved for the improvement of efficiency at the machine element design stage.

Grading Policy

Final grade will be calculated according to drawing assignments (100%). To pass, students must earn at least 60 points out of 100.
