Teaching Methodologies and Assessment Criteria Presentation of the subject by the teacher. Presentation to students of video tutorials designed by the responsible teacher specifically for the subject to be taught in each class. At the individual workstation, each student watches the video tutorials at his own pace and repeats his presentation as many times as he wants. Then, the student replicates the object/assembly, whose modelling process is illustrated in the video. Once the 3D modelling of the video object is completed, exercises of a similar nature are provided. The evaluation of the subject by frequency or by final exam consists of carrying out a test in which the student has to model several objects and an assembly in 3D CAD.
Language Portuguese. Tutorial support is available in English.
