Construction CAD is an industry-specific sequential course to Intro to AutoCAD, where students (after attaining working knowledge of the software), implement the methods and purposes of architectural drawing details which convey design intent while illustrating constructability of detail, the materials, assemblies and methods to be used in construction. Students learning outcomes are augments through construction observation, detail observation and a hands-on scaled detail building project.
Method: Operational-demonstrations; Situational-lecture; Mock in-office project practice.
All projects will be accessed and submitted for grading via Blackboard.
Text: (Text used in AutoCAD)
▪ Understand the role of construction documents to illustrate assembly and constructability in the CAD environment.
▪ Analyze and understand building systems and their integration in design and performance.
▪ Demonstrate working knowledge of the various codes, ordinances and regulations effecting designs and how architectural details are designed and drawn to convey field construction of such.
