Job a Day, Friday, CAD Engineering


Today is the last day of our job a day week. It has been a lot of fun and given my son a look at several different professions.  I think that today was his absolute favorite day by far though. Today his older brother Matthew taught him about being a CAD Engineer.  Matthew is a Certified CAD Engineer and truly loves Engineering.   First thing we did again today was fill out an application.

Then Matthew began teaching him how to draft. He used a 3D block and graph paper.  He taught him how to read a ruler, measurement, fractions and how to dimension a 2D drawing.  He taught him the difference between a freehand drawing and a mechanical drawing.

He taught him about 3D drafting on an app for an android called 3D Creationis

He had 3D blocks then had to create it on the app.
