AutoCAD,ProE,ANSYS,MATLAB are most versatile and most ubiquitous commercial Design, Modeling and simulation software tool developed and marketed by AutoDesk, PTC, ANSYS and MathWork. It is an essential tool for Mechanical, Automobile Engineers, and Researchers.
Skill Development Program was arranged by Prof. Jaykumar Joshi with co-operation of CADD centre, Gondal road, Rajkot and faculty members of
Mechanical Engineering Department. The venues of the Skill Development Program were PDC Auditorium, CAD-CAM Laboratory and it was arranged for 4th, 6th and 8th Semester students of Mechanical Engineering Department. All the 4th, 6th and 8th Semester students of Mechanical Engineering Department have successfully participated in this skill development program.
The session was started by Mr. Ronak Dhrangdharia, owner of CADD Centre with introduction and activities of AutoCad and CADD centre. He has also highlighted applications of CAD-CAM-CAE in various industries. Then he conducted a session with introduction and various drawing commands in AutoCad software.
Skill Development Program was split in three days and at the end of each day followed by practice in software with the example of Mechanical Components. Mr. Ronak has explained each modules of AutoCAD software to 4th Semester students with some examples, While Mechanical Engineering Department faculties explains ProE, ANSYS and MATLAB to 6th and 8th Semester student Participants. Participants have also done practice of each module with different examples and learnt basic steps to create design in AutoCAD,ProE,ANSYS,MATLAB softwares.
Team members of CADD centre were there to help participants during practice session. They have collected feedbacks from each participants about their experience of Skill Development Program and demanded if there any suggestions at the end of program.
