MIT Museumís new nautical skills course! This class in traditional hands-on design practice will help you better understand the coding of CAD applications. Skilled instructors will teach you how 3-D models are used in the design process. The instructors will guide the class in the drafting procedures traditional builders use when working from a model to develop lines plans and/or a full-scale lofting in preparation to building a boat. Small teams will produce their own lines plans from a model and learn ways to develop other useful design data.
