Learn the fundamental methods of 3D computer aided design (CAD) and the primary reasons why 3D CAD is such a valuable tool for the object maker. SketchUp is a popular, free, and easy to use 3D CAD platform that has great basic attributes by itself that also cross over to other more powerful CAD packages. Through simple assigned exercises, students will learn to draw and design in scaled 3D, experience the simplicity of making design changes, and visualize the designed object before committing to permanent materials. Designing in CAD also helps flush out material needs and processes so shop time is spent making.
