Fundamentals of Drafting

Students in this course will be introduced to the drafting form of communication.

They will use manual drafting tools to draw geometric constructions and multiview drawings (orthographic projections). The students will dimension their drawings using the aligned and unidirectional systems of dimensioning. Students will also cover units in auxiliary views and revolutions, sectional views and conventions as well as creating working drawings. An introduction to computer-aided-drafting using AutoCAD 2015 will complete the semester of study.

A portfolio of their work will be assembled throughout the semester.
