    In this class we'll cover the basics of designing a part using 3D CAD software. We'll cover 2D sketches, how to turn those sketches into 3D shapes, and parametric modeling. The goal of the class is to cover enough detail in each topic to give participants the knowledge to design basic 3D parts from scratch.
    During the class there will be scheduled breaks for participants to practice what we just learned, ask questions, and get individual help.
    We will be using Onshape for this class, but the concepts covered are applicable to many CAD programs.
