About this Course
This is an introductory course for people that have no experience in Computer Aided Drawing using AutoCAD software, and is of particular interest to Architects, Engineers, Contractors, Cabinet Makers, Landscape and Interior Designers. Students must be knowledgeable in basic computer use. Topics will include basic AutoCAD drawing commands, text creation, scale factors of drawing and dimensioning techniques, layers, line weight usage, fundamental drafting technique, drawing management, hatching, block usage, and creating symbol library for multiple uses. Students will be able to draw all aspects of a small Cape Cod house design from conception to all phases of a working drawing set for construction, including floor plans, elevations, sections, kitchen cabinets, and details. And finally printing the project out on their own designed title block with proper drawing layouts. This course will give the student the basic skills and ability to draw anything they want. Each student has his own PC workstation for the instruction. A PC-based student version of the software is provided for homework. Class will be instructed on a PC platform, and MAC usage is possible but not instructed due to the different interface. We will be using the latest version of AutoCAD.
Please bring a flash drive to class.
