CAD 181 Intro to Computer Aided Drafting-CAD I (2.5)
Credit, Degree Applicable
Introduction to CAD hardware and software operations and their applications in drafting; basic shape description, display, editing, dimensioning and plotting.
Students must have an understanding of orthographic projection, isometric drawing techniques and dimensioning according to ANSI standards.)
After successful completion of this course, students will be able to:
- Outcome 1: Interpret the technical vocabulary used in Computer Aided Drafting.
- Outcome 2: Summarize the log-on and log-off procedures for the CAD system.
- Outcome 3: Organize drawing files in appropriate folders and subfolders.
- Outcome 4: Maintain drawing files and ensure that they remain virus-free. (remove/ add: e-transmit them across networks.}
- Outcome 5: Formulate an initialization procedure for the drawing environment.
- Outcome 6: Summarize the drawing commands utilized by the CAD software.
- Outcome 7: Synthesize a methodology for converting a manual drawing into a computer-generated format.
