Modeling and Design for Mechanical Engineers

There are many considerations that play a part in engineering a new product. Regardless of what that product is, there are fundamentals such as form, fit, and function when it comes to digital modeling. In this course, we lay the foundation to create any design and dive deep into topics about the control of the design. From assembly joints and joint limits to complex shapes using forms, rest assured that your design will be rock solid.

After completing this course you'll be able to: 

  • Create and drive a mechanical gear assembly.
  • Create and modify a form-based design.
  • Use design tools for molded parts.
  • Demonstrate proficiency in the setup and creation of a design.
