Computer Assisted Drafting

CAD 102: CAD ENGINEERING APPLICATIONS

Topics include fundamentals of geometric dimensioning and tolerancing using the latest international standards. Use of computer-aided drafting systems in 2D and 3D will be emphasized using AutoCad software. Advanced work includes basics in descriptive geometry, double auxiliary surface intersections, and developments for sheet metal fabrication. Also screw threads, fasteners, keys, springs, precision dimensions, preparation of production drawings from the system layout (detailing) and assemblies. Note: Students must register for both a lecture and a lab. 1 Lecture, 2 Lab, 2 Credit Hours. Prerequisite: ARC 104 or ENT 131 or permission of the instructor.

CAD 103: 3D AUTOCAD & SOLID MODELING

This is an in-depth course in CAD drafting using AutoCad for architectural and engineering students to go beyond the basic course and explores such features as 3D drafting, rendering and presentation, advanced use of laying systems, paper and model space, use of external references (xref's) and cross use of the AutoCad program with other programs such as email, word processing and other drafting programs. This course is appropriate for students in all disciplines where CAD is used. Note: Students must register for both a lecture and a lab. 1 Lecture, 2 Lab, 2 Credit Hours. Prerequisites: ARC 104 and ENT 131, or permission of instructor.

CAD 104: ADVANCED CAD FOR PRODUCTION

This is an in-depth course in the use and application of advanced AutoCad commands. Topics include dimensioning, plotting, hatching, attributes, external references, managing the drawing environment and customization. This course is appropriate for students in all disciplines where CAD is used. Architecture students should be enrolled in ARC 206. CAD and engineering students will advance their skills in the use of AutoCad in a production environment. Note: Students must register for both a lecture and a lab. 1 Lecture, 2 Lab, 2 Credit Hours. Prerequisites: ARC 104 and ENT 131, or permission of instructor.

CAD 206: COOPERATIVE WORK EXPERIENCE

A 300-hour work experience in local industry relevant to the student's academic studies in the Computer Assisted Drafting Technology Program. The work experience must be deemed relevant and meaningful to the curriculum by the Chairperson of the program or designated others if the student is to receive academic credit for such activity. The student may receive compensation from the employer or work as an intern at no pay. In either case, the work experience will be carried out in accordance with state and federal laws and with an affiliation agreement entered into by the College and the Host Organization. Prerequisite: ENR 101 and permission of instructor. Pre- or Co-requisite: ARC 104 or CAD 102.

Credits: 5
