Description

Many new technologies are being utilised such as 3-D printing and additive manufacturing in a wide range of industries to produce functional products for consumer use. These technologies require the ability to take a design and create a 3-D computer based model. Such models can then be used via the 3-D printing machines to produce a prototype and/or real functional components.

Additional Information

These tasks are graded pass, merit or distinction and will be assessed by your assessor watching how you carry out the tasks and checking your final pieces of work.

Course Content

This course provides learners with the essential skills in how to use Computer Aided Design software. You will learn how an object is designed 3D and how objects could be manufactured thereafter.

Optional Modules

N/A

Assessment Method

You are taught in a classroom environment through college based learning. At specific stages, you will complete practical assignments (3-D modelling class tests) and a GOLA test analysing computer and 3-D knowledge competence.

Progression Opportunities

Level 1 Parametric modelling is a suitable entry route onto other design courses (i.e. Level 2 & 3 Parametric modelling etc.) and could also be used to obtain employment in a suitable area requiring 3-D design modelling capability (depending on your knowledge and prior industry experience).

Entry Requirements

This entry CAD course typically using SolidWorks 3-D design software is suitable for new learners with little or no prior CAD experience and will build up the 3-D modelling aptitude.
