Course detail

CAD System II

FSI-9SC2Acad. year: 2020/2021

Course continued practical and theoretical skills from course CAD systems I. Students will meet methods of surface and 3D modeling with using CAD systems.

Learning outcomes of the course unit

Students will have an overview of CAD system properties used in the design and construction processes.


Students are expected to have basic knowledge of designing machine parts and machine nodes, as well as computer knowledge.
