DM3B:AutoCAD II -3D Design


This second level CAD course is for individuals already having a basic knowledge of AutoCAD, the world's most popular program for computer-based drafting and design, extremely powerful but difficult to master. Completion of two eight-week courses is recommended as preparation for professional use of AutoCAD. This design-focused course is oriented toward developing computer based, three-dimensional architectural models. All types of 3D modeling techniques, from wire frame through solids modeling will be covered. Students will also learn techniques for developing efficient drawing organization for optimal speed and rendering efficiency. Classes will mix lectures with hands-on classroom instruction using AutoCAD. Weekly assignments will require approximately three hours of work to be completed outside of class, plus short readings. Students must complete a final project consisting of an architectural or spatial model based on either the student's own work or of a historically significant subject.
