CAD 102 - Advanced Geometry and Industrial CAD

Credits: 12
A geographical process used to analyze spatial relationships by viewing the object or situation in such a way that the relationship being investigated is actual size and measurable. Students apply descriptive geometry to develop and dimensions primary and secondary auxiliary views of 3-D objects. Students use visualization techniques to develop 3-D pictorial drawings dealing with non-isometric surfaces, irregular shapes and compound angles. Covers perspective development, exploded, and cut-away views.  This class will also introduce principles, techniques and applications of creating geometry across the different disciplines mechanical, civil, and architectural. Areas of study include a review of selecting views, sectioning and auxiliary views, drafting conventions, format selection, and comparing dimensioning conventions over different industries. Setting dimension variables in Auto CAD with parent child relationships, added X-referencing instruction, and property lines with slope definitions.

Enrollment Requirement: CAD 101  or instructor consent.

Course Fee: $100.00

Course Outcomes:
Students who successfully complete this class will be able to:

  1. Use non-orthographic views to properly identify distorted foreshortening in traditional orthographic views.
  2. Developer dihedral angles between 2 planes.
  3. Develop bearings and slopes of lines made relative to the ground plane.
  4. Develop primary and secondary non-orthographic views for true size and shape development of an object.

Program Outcomes
  1. Identify, solve, and apply engineering principles and calculations relevant to a design project.
  2. Apply computer and engineering office software for documentation, communication and approval within an engineering office environment.

College-wide Outcomes
  • Critical Thinking -Critical thinking finds expression in all disciplines and everyday life. It is characterized by an ability to reflect upon thinking patterns, including the role of emotions on thoughts, and to rigorously assess the quality of thought through its work products. Critical thinkers routinely evaluate thinking processes and alter them, as necessary, to facilitate an improvement in their thinking and potentially foster certain dispositions or intellectual traits over time.
  • Responsibility - Responsibility encompasses those behaviors and dispositions necessary for students to be effective members of a community. This outcome is designed to help students recognize the value of a commitment to those responsibilities which will enable them to work successfully individually and with others.
  • Quantitative and Symbolic Reasoning - Quantitative Reasoning encompasses abilities necessary for a student to become literate in today’s technological world. Quantitative reasoning begins with basic skills and extends to problem solving.
