Modeling Education for Improving CAD Model Applicability for Product Development Process

The quality of CAD models affects the efficiency of the product development process. However, it seems that CAD modeling education in colleges simply focuses on the creation of CAD models without considering the quality or the applicability of the models. In this paper, we propose educational modeling approaches to help improve the quality and applicability of CAD models. These methods teach students to create models that include a rich set of information, facilitate downstream applications, and are precisely made with the fewest operations. A survey was carried out with students to validate these approaches.
