The programme will introduce students to the various digital design process used in product and machine design. Students will use 3D based CAD systems to design and simulate products and machine parts operations. Then using this data, they will prototype components using such processes as 3D printing and CNC machining.
Following a design methodology student will design products and components and gain an understanding of the stages of the product development life-cycle, from project planning, concept developments, market requirements, design, analysis, prototyping and testing. The student will gain an understanding of creative design methods, material selection and manufacturing processes used for rapid prototyping.
This programme is being run in partnership with DkIT, Creative Spark and Dundalk Chamber Skillnet
On completion of the training programme, participants will:
Learn Industry based CAD / CAM Software
Learn modern manufacturing Technologies such as 3d printing / CNC machining
Take a design idea from concept through to manufacture
This course is best suited to people with an interest in CAD, machine design, product design, manufacturing, CNC machining or 3D printing.
