AEC 81 - Basic CAD Drafting
A first course in technical drawing designed primarily for students planning to enroll in regular-program Architectural, Engineering and CAD Technologies courses upon completion of this course, but open to others as well. Topics include use of CAD software, scaling and plotting drawings, orthographic projection, sections, dimensions, pattern drawing, and pictorial drawing. Similar to AEC 80, but computer-based and offered more regularly.
1 hr. lect., 3 hrs. lab. per week
