Learn Sheet Metal Design
- 3D CAD Software Siemens Solid Edge (Free Download). Take the class "3D CAD Fundamentals with SIEMENS Solid Edge"
Sheet metal can be cut, bent and stretched into an amazing array of shapes. To meet unique sheet metal design challenges, like manufacturability, Solid Edge streamlines the entire sheet metal product development process, from CAD design through flat pattern and drawing development. Unlike general purpose CAD tools, Solid Edge includes sheet metal-specific features, like Emboss, Dimple, Drawn Cut, Bead, Contour Flange, Straight Brake and Etch. This class introduces the concepts and best practices for creating 3D sheet metal models with Siemens Solid Edge software. A core design capability of Solid Edge is the Sheet Metal environment, which provides an entire design-through-fabrication workflow, using streamlined synchronous modeling methods tailored to the unique needs of sheet metal design.

- Designers who are interested in Mechanical Engineering and Sheet Metal
John Devitry a Research Fellow at the Center of Space Engineering - Utah State University 2015 - 2019. From 2004 – 2015 John taught the introductory classes for Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering at USU while also working as the CAD Administrator at Space Dynamics Laboratory – the research arm of USU.
Over the years John has developed a unique and compelling approach to teaching mechanical engineering and 3D design, introducing the concept of Conceptual Design Blending as a way to facilitate creative thinking with engineering graphics students.
Earlier is his career John worked for 3D Systems, promoting rapid prototyping and rapid tooling technologies visiting hundreds of leading design and manufacturing companies around the world. He holds 3 patents developing the product from concept to market, selling the patent rights to independent investors. John enjoys writing and has published 3 articles in BYU Studies.
