This course introduces students to the principles of pattern making, grading, including manual techniques of chart and stack grading. The course uses Reach CAD, computerized digitizing, grading, and marker-making system. This course also introduces students about the large scale production using Computer aided Manufacturing (CAM) and various process documentation.
