"Students will illustrate various products with exploded views to demonstrate component interfaces with emphasis on visual communication skills. Problem solving and design objectives will be criteria for successful product creation. The process will entail the migration of 2-D concept hand sketches into section development for the output of 3D models. Course components will also include: product architecture, system categories, human factors, and functional aesthetics.Students will become familiar with developing section properties, exploded views and their relationship to craftsmanship and manufacturing applications. Concepts will be translated into digital models with awareness of assembly process, surface treatments, and component interfaces."
