As part of the taster module for DCG, students will focus on the SolidWorks and Product Design Sketching. This keeps all students on equal footing as some students have not acquired technical drawing skills associate with the subject at junior certificate.

SolidWorks is CAD (Computer Aided Design) software used in industry to assist in the design and creation of products. It is used in the DCG Assignment for Leaving Cert also.

In this module you will get the opportunity to experience using SolidWorks software while drawing some simple objects.

Sketching allows product designers to generate ideas quickly, without committing resources to any single idea. Once a final design has been decided upon, designers then refine their sketches by adding detail and rendering.

In this module you will receive hands-on demonstrations of concepts such as sketching basic shapes as well as more complex forms.
