CMGT 112 - AutoCAD for Construction Management
- Prerequisite: AEC 80/81 or BLPR 22, OR Equivalent
- Co-requisite: CMGT 100
CMGT majors only. This course is an introduction to basic computer-aided drafting skills needed for Construction Managers. Emphasis is placed on drawing setup; creating and modifying geometry; placing, rotating, and scaling objects; adding text and dimensions; using layers; understanding various coordinate systems; as well as discussing input and output devices. There will be a concentration in the use of AutoCAD software.
2 hrs. lect.; 6 hrs. lab. per week
Student Learning Outcomes
Upon successful completion of CMGT 112, the student will be able to:
- Set up AutoCAD on your computer, roughly define terms, concepts, and standards associated with the topics of the course
- Navigate the interface, open and close files, use Zoom commands to adjust the display of objects on the screen,
- Describe units, coordinate systems to create basic objects, use different data input techniques, basic Draw commands, object snaps, object snap tracking and other tools
- Select, modify, and adjust the properties of objects by changing their size, shape, orientation, or geometry using Grip Editing. Trim, Extend, Offset, Join, Move, Copy, and other modify type commands.
- Organize drawings by creating and managing layers.
- Create, edit, and manage annotation objects using multiline and single line text, dimensions and dimension styles.
- Enhance the drawing's visual appearance with hatch patterns and gradient fills.
- Create multiple segmented polyline objects, splines anti ellipses.
- Create layouts, manipulate viewports and use different scales.
- Create and use page setups, to plot drawings from layout and model space.
- Create blocks and reuse them in your drawings using the Insert command, DesignCenter, and Tool Palettes.
- Work with External References
- Use drawing templates to simplify the process of creating new drawings which contain all required dimension and text styles, and layers that you would otherwise create manually.
- Report to a workplace regularly, work with others in a professional manner, work from oral and written instructions, and manage time efficiently to meet project deadlines.
- Demonstrate oral and written communication, computation, and problem solving skills appropriate to the level of the coursework
