This course is an introduction to parametric design. The course will cover parametric modeling fundamentals, solid geometry concepts, parametric constraints fundamentals and geometric construction tools. Basic software commands will also be covered to give the student ability to demonstrate parametric modeling knowledge. 2 hrs. lecture/wk.
Associated Costs: These are additional (out-of-pocket) expense considerations that students should expect in addition to the course tuition, fees, and textbooks. $10.
Prerequisite or corequisite: DRAF 123 or Department approval
Refer to the instructor's course syllabus for details about any supplies that may be required.
Upon successful completion of this course, the student should be able to:
- Describe and utilize parametric modeling fundamentals.
- Identify solid geometry concepts.
- Apply basic parametric constraints to a model.
