The first thing you do in EAD1 is research different engineering fields that interest you, so that you can focus your projects in this area. We cover the following standards: architectural & mechanical, sketching, board drafting, 2D&3D CAD, 3D modeling, safety and employability skills.
All projects in this class have a sketching, 2D & 3D CAD and a hands-on 3D model component to them. Examples of projects: Historical Building Model, Shed Design, Cabin Design, 3D Puzzle, etc…
Students will either construct 3D models by hand, use the 3D printer or the Laser Engraver.
