In the first half of the course students are introduced to a variety of design tools, including cloud-based, freeform CAD for modeling and design collaboration, 3D printing, 3D scanning and scan data processing, simulation for design engineers, and rendering and animation. Working in teams, students then use these digital prototyping tools to design and prototype a medical product or device.

1. Expand upon existing CAD skills using parametric and direct solid modeling.
2. Use T-Splines to develop sculpted, watertight geometry.
3. Understand the various capabilities and weaknesses of parametric solid, direct solid, NURBS, and T-Splines modeling.
4. Gain hands-on experience using 3D printing and 3D scanning.
5. Gain experience using digital prototyping tools used for visualization and simulation.
6. Promote multidisciplinary collaboration between engineering and industrial design.
7. Use cloud-based 3D CAD for collaboration.
