Lew Barton – Computer Aided Design and Drafting

Back to Instructor Webpages


Winter Term 2020

Welcome to EG 4.416 CAD for Factory Automation!   I look forward to meeting you! 

This class is designed for and is a requirement for students in the Mechatronics Program.  

 The class meets in 2 sections: I will be teaching the one that meets on Tuesdays & Thursdays from 10AM to 1PM in room IB112.   Ric Costin will be teaching the other one.    The class uses AutoCad.  You will first learn to draw lines, etc. then move on to simple mechanical drawings, learning to dimension parts.  Then we will move on to drawing schematics, P&ID drawings, etc.  I also plan to give an introduction to solid modeling using AutoDesk Inventor.   

 You will need a 1Gb or larger thumb drive on the first day of class.

  The class moves quickly--Classes are information packed.  Each class builds on previous classes.  It is imperative the you attend every class session.


 Please be in class promptly and ready to go (logged on, etc.) 

We will work in AutoCad and Inventor. I will tell you how to get the free student versions of both so you can work at home.  Having software at home will help you become familiar with it, as well as giving you more time to complete your homework.

 This year we will NOT be using a text.


 I don't have an office on campus, but I can be reached at 541-760-1262.  Please feel free to call me with any questions.  You can also Email me


 See you in class!
