Course DescriptionIntroduces manual and computer-aided drafting including hand sketching, drafting standards, pictorial drawings, and dimensioning. Includes creation of 2-D drawing and 3-D solid models using AutoCad Software. Prerequisite: Placement in WR 115. Prerequisite or concurrent registration: MTH 60 or CMET 112.
Intended Outcomes for the courseThe student will be able to:
- Sketch two-dimensional orthographic drawings from three-dimensional isometric views.
- Sketch isometric pictorials given two-dimensional orthographic drawings.
- Create two-dimensional orthographic drawings using AutoCAD software, complete with construction lines, dimensions, and layers.
- Demonstrate competency with various drawings aides and modification commands.
- Create three-dimensional solid models using AutoCAD software.
- Develop assembly type drawings using multiple solid models.
- Generate paper space layouts from model space geometry.
Outcome Assessment StrategiesIndividual and full class discussion; lab drawing assignments; exams; and final project deliverables may be used to assess outcomes.
