'Recognizing the need is the primary condition for design.'

Charles Eames

'To design is to communicate clearly by whatever means you can control or master.'
Milton Glaser

Unit 10 - Computer aided design

During this unit you will learn how to and produce evidence of:

A) Development of 3D models in a 3D CAD package

B) Develop 2D Orthographic production drawings in a 2D CAD package

C) Development of photorealistic rendered images of 3D models

Assembiles, what they are and why they are used: 2X examples of CAD assemblies below

Below are a couple of examples of small assemblies done in 3D CAD there are also some Solidworks files for you to use to practise making a V-Block assembly.
