Engineering Design I
Grade : 9 - 12
The Engineering Design I course teaches the basics of introductory computer aided design including the creation of geometric forms, interpreting 2D and 3D drawings of objects, and editing isometric and perspective drawings in a 3D CAD environment. Students create a diverse portfolio of projects while learning to translate abstract concepts into functional designs. Projects include orthographic projections of 3D objects, isometric drawings, and 3D walkthroughs. Students produce drawings to meet design specifications, create oblique and perspective CAD drawings, and edit drawings in a 3D CAD environment.
In addition to the minimum technical specifications found at http://www.edgenuity.com/Support/System-Requirements, this course requires a Windows-based computer. Additional software used in the program is CAD Standard Lite® which is provided upon course enrollment.
