Requirements
  • Before starting this course you will need to download the free academic version of the Siemens Solid Edge software. See the instructions under Section 01 for directions. You will need a decent PC to run the software - a modern graphics card and a minimum of 4GB of RAM recommended.
Description

  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.

Who is the target audience?
  • This class is a 2D introduction to 3D mechanical CAD and geared towards students interested in artistic patterns and creative thinking.
