Course Content

  • Module 01: Introduction to CAD Design                      

What is a Computer-Aided Design? Learn about the history of CAD, the importance and impacts of CAD, and the most used CAD software.

  • Module 02: CAD Designer Career in the United Kingdom                   

A CAD Designer or Technician uses CAD software to create technical drawings and plans for products and parts used in the engineering, construction, and manufacturing industries. They will work with architects and design engineers to understand the requirements of their initial designs and turn them into accurate and detailed technical drawings in 2D and 3D models.

  • Module 03: Basics for CAD Design – Part 1                    

Study the terms and laws of solid mechanics, fluid mechanics and engineering mechanics.

  • Module 04: Basics for CAD Design – Part 2                    

Learn about product design using CAD, cost estimation and considerations in CAD design, and environmental considerations in product design.

  • Module 05: 2D Shape in CAD         

A CAD Designer must be introduced to some of the basic elements used in two-dimensional shape definition to work in CAD software. First, the shapes and dimensions, later grids, and rulers.

  • Module 06: 3D Shape in CAD         

3D is all about the third Z coordinate. In 2D, we only care for the X- and Y-axes but never used the Z-axis. And most of the time, we do not even use coordinates, just the top-twenty CAD commands, the Ortho tool, and so on. But in 3D, the correct use of coordinates can substantially accelerate our work.

  • Module 07: Geometry and Modelling                      

As a general strategy in modelling, the topology and geometry are handled separately. Geometry is handled in terms of the general entities: point, curve, surface, and it is up to the geometric package to sort out the geometric types. This means that the geometry is handled via a functional interface consisting of some general geometry handling functions.

  • Module 08: Assemblies in CAD Design                      

Most products consist of a set of linked objects organised in a structure called, at least sometimes, an ‘‘assembly’’. The classical assembly structure defined in the BUILD system, perhaps even earlier, has a structure consisting of an assembly, containing a list of instances each referring to a single object or an assembly.

  • Module 09: Extrusion and Rotations          

Extrusion operation creates solids by sweeping the shape-defining element – the extrusion contour.  Rotation operation creates solids by the rotational sweeping of the shape-defining element – the rotation contour about an axis in space.

  • Module 10: Blending Operations in CAD                      

The edge blending operation makes the transition between two or more adjoining surfaces belonging to one solid body. Blending can be performed on both solid and sheet bodies.

  • Module 11: Grids and Regular Polygons                      

Grids are a perfect example of geometric systems based on discrete elements since they are characterised by elements, such as points, separated by regular relations of distance. This lesson will deal with connected grids-that is, grids defined by the connections of the points and grids consisting of discrete points.

  • Module 12: Parameters in Civil Drawings                      

Learn about the parameters in civil drawings from floors to walls and doors, windows, columns, roofs, beams, arches, stairs, and ramps.

  • Module 13: Introduction to AutoCAD                      

AutoCAD allows the designer to use and manage it on multiple machines using network licensing. Being an easily available program, AutoCAD is used globally by students, teachers, architects, freelancers, engineers, and fashion designers.

  • Module 14: Introduction to T-Flex CAD                      

Implementation and full-scale use of the T-FLEX complex allows to reduce significantly terms of development and cost value of a new product, to increase the quality of production and overall effectiveness of the use of technical, commercial and organizational resources of the enterprises.

  • Module 15: Introduction to SolidWorks                      

SolidWorks is the automation system of project works (ASPW) in three dimensions. It is developed by SolidWorks Corporation company as an alternative to a two-dimensional CAD.

  • Module 16: Introduction to FreeCAD

The mouse model of FreeCAD is very flexible and intuitive, and with a few hints, you can use it after only a minute of practice. Objects can be selected by a click with the left mouse button either by clicking on the object in the 3D-view or by selecting it in the tree view.

I can't express how fantastic the courses Visio Learning provides. The £7.99/month subscription charge is insignificant when compared to the training quality. I've taken a lot of courses from them, and they've all been great!
