CD4161 Computer Aided Design Laboratory Syllabus – Anna University PG Syllabus Regulation 2021


 To impart knowledge on how to prepare drawings for various mechanical components using any
commercially available 3D modeling software’s

 CAD Introduction.
 Sketcher
 Solid modeling – Extrude, Revolve, Sweep and variational sweep, Loft
 Surface modeling – Extrude, Sweep, Trim and Mesh of curves, Freeform.
 Feature manipulation – Copy, Edit, Pattern, Suppress, History operations etc.
 Assembly – Constraints, Exploded Views, Interference check
 Drafting – Layouts, Standard & Sectional Views, Detailing & Plotting.
Exercises in modeling and drafting of mechanical components-assembly using parametric and featurebased packages like PRO-E/SOLIDWORKS /CATIA/NX


On completion of the course the student will be able to
 Use the modern engineering tools necessary for engineering practice
 Draw 2D part drawings, sectional views, and assembly drawings as per standards.
 Create 3D Model on any CAD software.
 Convert 3D solid models into 2D drawings and prepare different views, sections, and
dimensioning of part models.
 Examine interference to ensure that parts will not interfere.
