Computer Aided Design and Engineering: CAD, CAM

Dear students, the application process is over.

Applications submitted by June 5, 2022, will be reviewed.

Thank you for your engagement!

Course Description
CAD (Computer Aided Design) is the use of computer software to design and document a product's design process. Engineering drawing entails the use of graphical symbols such as points, lines, curves, planes and shapes. Used by engineers, architects, and construction managers, CAD has replaced manual drafting. It helps users creating designs in either 2D or 3D so that they can visualize the construction. CAD enables the development, modification, and optimization of the design process.

Computer Aided Manufacturing (CAM) is a process of using a software to operate and control machine tools and facilitate the manufacturing of workpieces and products.


What will you learn?
You will go through 2 Modules, taught by 2 instructors.

Module 1 (Instructor: Ivaylo Marzev)

In this Module you will learn about Fundamental Processes that covers the essential NX task-based processes that new users will utilize when creating and editing parts. Student will be able to develop solid and assembly models and their drawings. These concepts can be applied in the real world of product development and collaboration. Topics, that will be covered:
  • Introduction. Sketcher
  • Feature Modeling
  • Assembly Modeling / Synchronous Modeling
  • Drafting

Module 2 (Instructor: Ivan Matanov)

In this Module you will learn about NX Manufacturing Fundamentals that provides NC programmer with the ability to gain a detailed insight into the powerful 2 and 3-axis milling and drilling modules in NX. Besides the basics this training teaches the Cavity Mil, Rest Milling, Z-level Profile and Contour Area. These modules enable the programmers to create drilling and milling programs in a structured way. Furthermore, the emphasis will be on creating an NC file and generating documents for the workplace. Topics, that will be covered:
  • General functions
  • 3-axis milling
  • 3-axis and 2-axis milling
  • 2-axis milling and Drilling

Who is this course for?
The course is suitable for individuals with mechanical, manufacturing, engineering, and industrial design education, who need to manage and use advanced CAD/CAM solutions:
  • Mechanical Engineers
  • Manufacturing Engineers
  • Industrial CAD Designers
  • Individuals, who have knowledge in design, drafting, NC coding and Milling Machines experience.

Prerequisites:
To attend this course, you'll need to have:
  • some experience with 3-axis milling machine.
  • knowledge about CNC ISO 6983 codes.
  • some experience with CNC program writing.
  • engineering education.
