Prerequisites: Grade of “C” or better in ENR 103
Co-requisites: None Concurrent Courses: None
Course Description: This course uses the latest release of CAD software commonly used in workplaces. Through hands-on instruction, students learn to complete a series of CAD projects. Topics covered include drawings in different disciplines, three-dimensional wire, surface, and solid modeling, geometric dimensioning and tolerancing, shading, and rendering.
Course Goals: Upon successful completion of this course, students should be able to do the following:
- set up drawings (blueprints) within a CAD system (namely MicroStation) from different disciplines (e.g., mechanical, architectural, civil, etc.);
- utilize the Place element and Modify element tools of MicroStation to construct and modify different geometries;
- employ dimensioning tools of MicroStation to add dimensions and/or tolerances (for mechanical design applications) to the blueprint;
- apply the Pattern command in drawings involving sectional views to highlight interior complexities of the design;
- employ the Level command in organizing the drawing according to the different categories of elements present in the design document;
- build a cells (symbols) library and employ existing symbols in electrical/architectural/mechanical, and other applications; and
- communicate with other members of the technical team through using the acceptable industry standards (i.e., ANSI and/or other applicable industry standards).
