DESIGN AND FABRICATION 2202

This two-term course reinforces and extends on the basics of engineering design, fabrication processes and shop safety covered in Design and Fabrication 1202. Design and Fabrication 2202 introduces students to some of the more advanced design and manufacturing tools used today including 2D and 3D Computer Aided Drafting and Design (CADD) software, 3D Computer Aided Manufacturing (CAM) software, and Computer Numerical Control (CNC) machining. Students first learn the basics of CAD/CAM/CNC through completion of a series of introductory lab/shop projects that allow them to actually experience the CAD/CAM process from the initial design concept to the finished CNC produced part. Students then apply the knowledge and skills developed through these activities in the completion of a major Design Project that must incorporate the CAD/CAM process.
