This is a second-level course which will build off of students’ previous knowledge from CAD1 and introduces them to the Autodesk Inventor program. Through the first half of the school year, students will become familiar with the Inventor program, the process of creating three dimensional drawings, and the many commands and procedures that can be used to do so. Students will work on creating drawings on nearly a daily basis and may have quizzes weekly or every other week. Quizzes may test vocabulary or command meanings but for the most part will concentrate on re-creating drawings. The second half of the school year will emphasize taking the students’ understanding of modelling 3D shapes and use that to design and print creations in a manufacturing and prototyping scenario. Towards the end of the course, they will work through the design process to create unique 3D printed items. This course is designed for students considering careers in an architectural or engineering field and hopes to encourage them to take additional, more advanced classes.
Students will do the majority of their work in the classroom. Because of the size of the Inventor program, it cannot be loaded on the students’ Chromebooks and the students must use the desktop PCs in the classroom. Therefore, there will be very little homework for this class with the exception of some non-Inventor related assignments.
Upon successful completion of this class, students will be able to:
