This course introduces the students to the CAD system and teaches the fundamental principles of AutoCAD that is essential in today’s job market. The course will equip students with the basics technical drafting techniques to computer generated drawings of the various drafting disciplines. As a result of this students will achieve a high level of competence in performing practical tasks related to architectural drawings and will be able to exercise these skills in the building industry.
--- Welcome ---
Welcome to all of you who are participating in this CAD3 - DB322 course. I know you are going to do very well as all others have done in the past. I encourage you to work SMART and not HARD. Happy CADDING!!!!!
This course is designed to teach the user of Autodesk Revit of its functionality in the design process. It will expose students to the user interface and the Autodesk Revit commands for design development of structures and to produce construction documentation for communication. The Autodesk Revit Architecture software is a powerful Building Information Modeling (BIM) programme that works the way Architects think - from preliminary design through design development, and into construction documents by streamlining the design process using a central 3D model. The course will enable students to create full 3D architectural project models and set them up in working drawings using the basic tools that the majority of users need to work with Revit Architecture.
This course will enable students to develop a greater understanding and awareness of the production of architectural advanced 2D drawings in an efficient and productive manner. In addition, it will help to develop, students with the necessary skills to produce hardcopies of 2D architectural drawings.
Students are expected to achieve a high level of competence in performing practical tasks related to architectural drawings and should be able to exercise these skills in the building industry.
