Course handbook

Description

This course enables students to develop basic spatial skill through the use of a solid modelling system. Students develop skills in interpreting and visualising 3D objects in 2D format. They create and assemble solid model representation of machine components and create 2D engineering drawings from solid models. Students develop advanced technical sketching skills to aid communication in engineering design.
