This curriculum will open your eyes to a new world of amazing patterns, shapes & artistic designs. In effect this introduction to STEM is a collision of art, engineering & math. The format is open ended, creative & challenging; a practical, easy to follow cookbook approach to developing spatial thinking. You are free to work at your own pace, improving your skills independently of classroom pressures. To create 3D printed parts you need to be able to create 3D parts. To create 3D parts you need to know how to create 2D sketches. This class teaches you how to create 2D sketches from an artistic angle. The Siemens Solid Edge software download is free to all students and is similar to Solidworks, Blender and Autodesk Inventor.
To get started you will need the (free) Siemens Solid Edge Academic Software loaded on your computer. To download go to the following link: https://www.plm.automation.siemens.com/en_us/academic/resources/solid-edge/student-download.cfm Download the class files: 01ClassFiles.zip

John Devitry is a Research Fellow at the Center of Space Engineering - Utah State University. 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. Education: 1986 – 1990 Brigham Young University Provo, UT. Bachelor of Science Degree in Engineering
