Three-Dimensional Solid Model Design I

Three-Dimensional Solid Model Design I is a one-credit course intended to introduce students to three-dimensional modeling utilizing three-dimensional capabilities of CAD software.  Emphasis is placed on working planes, profile creation, protrusions, extrusions, and rendering techniques. Students create two-dimensional part drawings relative to three-dimensional models.  Leadership activities, cocurricular opportunities and employable skills concepts are provided through participation in appropriate career and technical education organization affiliations.  The prerequisite for this course is Intermediate Drafting Design.



Solid Model Commands


Students will:


  1. Identify three-dimensional modeling commands necessary to complete a three-dimensional solid model design.

    Examples:  protrude command, revolved protrusion command



    Three-Dimensional Planes


  2. Identify three-dimensional working planes for part sketching and profile creation.
    • Demonstrating how to attach additional working planes

      Examples:  parallel, inclined, perpendicular



      Part Creation


  3. Construct a three-dimensional model by selecting working planes, creating profiles for protrusion and extrusion, and utilizing rendering commands.



    Part Features


  4. Utilize commands to add features to three-dimensional models.

    Examples:  constructing holes, adding fillets and rounds, applying cutouts, chamfering edges



    File Transitions


  5. Demonstrate operations needed for converting a three-dimensional model to a two-dimensional parts drawing, including all dimension notes and other relative information.
  • Creating drawings that may incorporate primary views, sections views, and auxiliary views



Two-Dimensional Part Drawing


  1. Arrange primary views, including all dimensions, notes, and other relative information needed to complete a two-dimensional drawing for production.

Examples:  specifying sheet size, editing drawing information, revising drawing
