Short Introduction | 짧은 소개

이 과정은 학생들에게 산업용 애플리케이션에 초점을 맞춘 2D 및 3D 컴퓨터 설계(CAD) 모델링에 대한 간략한 정보를 제공 합니다. 학생들은 기본 업계 표준 도면을 모델링 한 후 프로그램을 생성합니다. 업계를 선도하는 CAD 소프트웨어 프로그램 (코뿔소 기업 등)을 사용하는 방법을 배우게 될 것입니다.

As it's well-known, CAD is considered a fundamental skill for all engineers who plan to work in various industries. This course provides students with a introduction into a modern 2D and 3D Computer-Aided Design (CAD) and geometric modeling with a focus on industrial applications. Students will learn how to use industry-leading CAD software programs such as Rhinoceros 3D (an analogue of CATIA which is popular among mechanical engineers) to model industrial objects, and then create basic, industry-standard 3D models. Rhinoceros 3D is a widely used software for CAD, rapid prototyping, 3D printing, and reverse engineering in a variety of industries, including architecture, industrial design (e.g., automotive design), product design (e.g., jewelry design), multimedia, and graphic design. The goal of this course is to teach modern CAD trends, approaches and methods without focusing too much on conventional, frequently out-of-date methodologies.

Advantages of Rhinoceros 3D

  • More intuitive interface than most of analogues.

  • Short learning curve, i.e. much easier to learn than CATIA.

  • Tools are named in plain English.

  • Command line input: simply type the command.

  • Animated help file, demonstrates each tool. Heartfully written help files.

  • Tons of free plugins.

  • Awesome geometry teacher.

Frequency Dictionary | 빈도 사전

Assignments for Korean students will include a frequency dictionary. Prof. Ziatdinov believes that "studying a frequency dictionary for each forthcoming lecture will lead to a better understanding of the lecture content and improve learners' language skills."

Software: Rhinoceros 3D | 소프트웨어: 라이노세로스3D

"라이노세로스(Rhinoceros) 또는 라이노(Rhino), 라이노3D(Rhino3D)는 1980년에 설립된 사원주주회사 로버트 맥닐 앤드 어소시어츠(Robert McNeel & Associates)가 개발한 상용 3차원 컴퓨터 그래픽스 및 컴퓨터 지원 설계(CAD) 응용 소프트웨어이다.

라이노세로스 지오메트리는 NURBS 수학 모델에 기반을 두며, 컴퓨터 그래픽스에서 커브, 프리폼 서피스를 수학적으로 정교하게 표현하는 것에 초점을 두고 있다.

라이노세로스는 건축, 산업 디자인(예: 자동차 설계, 조선 설계), 제품 디자인(예: 보석류 디자인), 멀티미디어와 그래픽 디자인 분야에서 컴퓨터 지원 설계(CAD), 컴퓨터 지원 제조(CAM), 래피드 프로토타이핑, 3차원 인쇄, 리버스 엔지니어링 공정에 사용된다."

Students' Opinion | 학생 의견

"My name is Katharina Hofmann, I’m from Germany and my major is mechanical engineering. This is my 6th semester, but the first semester abroad. My home university is the University of Applied Sciences in Ingolstadt. I chose CAD course because I’m interested in design and wanted to have a look at design work with another program compared to the usual one we use at my home university. Furthermore, I have not much experience with designing components. Therefore, I’d like to increase my knowledge. In the future I’d like to work for a company and later in life I can imagine working as a freelancer. In my free time I enjoy doing sports and spending time with my friends and family."

"My name is Alyamani Edrees. I'm a Computer Engineering student from Saudi Arabia. I took CAD and Applications course because I wanted to be able to design for my Electronic Projects and 3D print it. Before taking this course, I had no Computer-aided design background. However this course helped me understand Computer-Aided Design, modeling and how to use CAD software programs like Rhinoceros 3D. I think this course grants students with a solid introduction to CAD. Also, the materials and projects provided was very helpful."
