3D Design & Modeling is a one-week course in which students will be exposed to 3D modeling software and learn the fundamentals in creating their own 3D computer models. This course is designed to cover the fundamentals, as well as more advanced applications, of Geometric Tolerancing. The student will learn the principles of Geometric Dimensioning and Tolerancing (GD&T) as applied to engineering design, manufacturing, and quality control. The course includes geometric concepts and standards used to communicate engineering design intent and provide a basis for design and productions.
