Not too easy. Not too difficult.
CAD 1 is a great course to learn basic engineering drawing skills. This course also allows you to experiment with online CAD programs like Inventor to create 3D designs on a virtual screen that can be 3D printed! This class was self paced while still maintains structure and in depth lessons.
The highlight of the CAD 1 class was being able to create a figure skate keychain and 3D print it. Our final project was to create an item of our choice to 3D print. I created a figure skate keychain with my name engraved in it. I learned how to use the fillet and loft tools and how a 3 D printer works.
