Learn to produce 3D models and multiview drawings on a Computer-Aided Design and Drafting (CADD) microcomputer using AutoCAD software. Topics include isometric drawing, drawing with extrusions, XYZ point filters, world and user coordinate systems, 3D wireframes, viewing 3D models, model and paper space, creating and scaling views, setting view layer visibility, constructing multiview drawings, surfacing with vertex defined meshes and polygon meshes.
Note: Registrations will be closed one week prior to the start of class
