3D modelling accurately and efficiently in Mechanical Engineering CAD is key to successful draughting and design work. This technical masterclass is designed to develop your 3D modelling technique and speed, by guiding you through the process of using a variety of tools to create a selection of components.
You will start by learning about the 7-steps to developing excellence in your area of study, as well how you can improve your productivity, work organisation and management in the Engineering sector.
Once you have completed these stages, watch an 11-part video demonstration on creating models in the simplest way that are easy to change and update if needed. The masterclass then guides you to perform the tasks shown in the videos and offers a set of downloadable resources to assist you.
Suitable for Level 3 (level 6 in Scotland) learners, this masterclass takes around 3 hours to complete. You are required to successfully answer a series of multiple choice questions at the end of your learning before being awarded a downloadable WorldSkills UK certificate.
In this technical masterclass, you will learn to:
create accurate 2D sketches and 3D models
utilise tools and techniques to increase productivity
model a range of components
create fully constrained parts
utilise modification tools to improve productivity
identify the most suitable modelling process for a range of components
explore hotkeys and the marking menu to improve productivity
