TITLES NOW AVAILBLE AT BARNES & NOBLE
Aurora CAD Training and Development has just completed a deal that will allow customers to order ACADTD's CAD books through their book stores. This arangement allows the purchase of Catia and NX course material at the b&ncollege website.
ACADTD SUPPLIES TO OHIO STATE UNIVERISTY
Aurora CAD Training and Development is proud to be providing its CAD training material to OHIO STATE University for their spring classes. They are using the newly released Generative Shape Design and Basic Methods material that has been developed by ACADTD.
GENERATIVE SHAPE DESIGN IS AVAILABLE
Aurora CAD Training and Development is proud to announce that the new book titled Fundamentals of Generative Shape Design is now available. Generative Shape design is the main surfacing tool available in CATIA V5. This workbench contains the basic tools to create contour shapes used to define sheet metal and stamped designs. Using a variety of surface creation functions, the examples in this book stress best-practice methods to design parts for change. Parts are designed ranging from simple shapes of volume control knobs to complex automobile support brackets and exhaust routings are presented using sweep, multi-section, and advanced filleting techniques. Attention is placed on Specification Tree development and organization for stable modeling.
All example exercises are put through a series of modifications to test the stability of the method and functionality used. Many assignments are also included for the student to practice as proof of lessons learned.
NEW CATIA SAMPLE BOOK
Aurora CAD Training and Development has just released this sample PDF of the 3 Major Catia titles that it publishes. This gives the user a look inside of the most complete training books for Catia that are available today. Select on the image for the download. PDF DOWNLOAD
"I strongly recommend the instructional materials for Siemens NX7.5 produced by Aurora CAD. I developed a short course held during an educational conference last summer to introduce NX7.5 to a group of national and international faculty and students. I worked with the Aurora CAD staff to rapidly produce instructional materials specifically matched to the course. I was very pleased with the positive response I received from university faculty and students regarding the NX instructional materials from Aurora CAD for the course. Many faculty at the conference that were unable to attend the short course at the conference asked to have a copy of the Aurora CAD NX short course materials shipped to them because they had heard exceptional reviews from their colleagues. I am introducing these materials to faculty at my university as a replacement for standard college texts in Engineering Graphics and NX CAD Modeling. Aurora CAD produces superior materials in an efficient and timely manner. I will definitely work with Aurora CAD again to develop additional NX and CATIA material." Dr. Paul H. Zang-Kettering University
NEW CATIA ASSEMBLY BOOK RELEASED
Aurora CAD Training and Development is proud to announce the release of the new Catia assembly book. The user will build a laptop, guitar, and other parts. They will learn how to use "real world techniques" to build assemblies.
ACADTD supplies to Class A Surfacing Academy
Aurora CAD Training and Development is proud to be providing its CAD training material to Class A Surfacing Academy for their classes.

ACADTD and Wayne State University on EcoCAR
Aurora CAD Training and Development is providing the Wayne State University team with the training material for the Siemens Unigraphics NX7 software. ACADTD the largest developer of NX material is providing the online material and its expertise to the designers and engineers at Wayne State.
NX7 BASIC METHODS AND APPLICATIONS
Click and Pick training has been the standard for years and proven to be ineffective. This book approaches the basics of Siemens NX7-7.5 with industry proven methods and techniques to design parts for change and manufacturing. It is believed that new users should learn tools using function and application training that emphasizes good design habits from the start. The methodology presented in this manual is intended to provide direction and guidance for creating robust, parametrically driven parts.
This course provides exercises and assignments enabling the beginning student to experience the interaction of commonly used basic design tools available in NX7-7.5. Students are guided through seven step-by-step exercises focusing on Part Design, Sketcher, Drafting, and Assembly Design modules. Students are also provided with six part drawings for 3D model creation using methods, techniques, and functionality required in the exercises. Completed Product and NX Parts are available as verification of lessons learned. This book is good for all versions of NX7.

ACADTD presents at SAE SHOW at Cobo Hall
ACADTD the largest supplier of CAD training material on the web presented to SAE International the Aurora Method™ at the SAE Congress held a Cobo Hall in Detroit MI on April 14th. Doug Hall the CEO presented this method of creating training material and delivering it was developed to make it easier for students and adults to learn CAD. This method takes into consideration everyone learns different. This method can also be applied to other training programs.
ACADTD Signs Assessment Agreement with SAE
"We are pleased to partner with Aurora CAD Training and Development to host their online learning assessments. Providing the mechanism to assess mastery of learning for online training represents an exciting new service for SAE International Professional Development and one we trust our members and customers will find highly valuable," says Kevin Perry, Manager, Professional Development, SAE International.
Aurora CAD Training and Development
"If you want total control of your CAD training budget then we have the product for you". ACADTD uses an upgraded approach, versus its competitors in this industry, in HOW we teach the user how to use the NX software. Aurora’s training process focuses on teaching the user how & why the various “operators” work the way they do. Once the specific operator is understood, the user can apply the use of that operator to any design scenario. Other developers teach in a “recipe style” or “step-by-step” approach that has proven to not be as effective as our “Operator” approach. Aurora focuses on how the operator actually works. Once understood, the user will be able to learn and then apply those skills in their work place or design environment.
