CADD (Computer Aided Design & Drafting) Laboratory

The Mechanical Engineering / Mechanical Engineering Technology CADD lab provides a modern facility for instruction in a variety of computer software packages.  A small sampling of software presently supported includes: 
  • Pro-Engineer, Solidworks, and AutoCAD for computer aided design and drafting; 
  • Ansys, Pro-Mechanica and Cosmos for finite element analysis, 
  • Rhinoceros for 3-D modeling and CAM interfacing; 
  • Mathcad, Matlab, Excel, and Maple for mathematical analysis; 
  • Working Model for kinematic analysis, 
  • LabVIEW for Instrumentation, Measurement and Control
  • the Microsoft Office Suite for Word Processing, Graphing, Database Management, etc,
  • various other applications

The CADD lab houses 36 networked computers running Windows software. Standard and large-format laser printers support the laboratory. This heavily used instructional laboratory supplements the adjacent Design Lab which shares nearly all software applications.
