EDD 121 - Computer-Assisted Drafting Applications
5 Skills Lab Hours
Prerequisites: EDD 120
This course is a continuation of the study of computer generated graphics. Students will develop advanced skills in computer-based drawing by creating working drawings for engineering applications. These drawings include orthographic projection concepts, section views, tolerancing and dimensioning, notes, schedules and symbols lists. Drawings will be created using computer graphic and AutoCAD software.
Upon successful completion of the course, the student will:
- Construct orthographic drawings using different layers, colors, line types and line weights specified by the ANSI standards.
- Select plotting devices and modify plotting device configurations to produce hard copy of completed CAD drawings.
- Use object snap modes and advanced drawing commands to create precision drawings.
- Use the AREA command to calculate the area of an object by adding and subtracting objects.
- List data related to a single point, an object, a group of objects or an entire drawing.
- Create text and dimension styles.
- Use dimensioning commands to dimension a drawing to accepted drafting standards.
- Describe the purpose for and proper use of layouts.
- Manipulate layouts.
- Prepare layouts for plotting.
- File handling
- Basic drawing commands
- Orthographic drawings
- Geometric constructions
- Inquiry commands
- Dimension styles
- Tolerance dimensioning applications
- Geometric dimensioning and tolerancing applications
- Layouts and view ports
- Architectural drawing applications
