DDGT240 - Digital Design Graphics Technology 3 Fall 2020

The third of a four course series in the Digital Design Graphics Technology A.S. Degree program. This course enables the student to learn and apply mechanical computer-aided design (CAD) drafting skills and techniques to working drawings including Geometric Dimensioning and Tolerancing (GD+T) and weldment symbology. Additional topics include external references and reverse engineering of assemblies. A study of 3D Printing. Students will print to the 3D Printer and retain the printed model. A study of 3ds Max for design visualization including: modeling, materials, lighting, rigging, animation, and rendering. A study of Adobe Premiere as a non-linear video editor. A combined study of 3ds Max and Adobe Premiere to create technically animated presentational videos for their professional portfolios as displayed on the department website.
