Learning Outcomes
On successful completion of this module the learner will be able to:
LO1 Produce 2D interior architectural drawings to illustrate a working knowledge of 2D CAD commands for the production.
LO2 Compose and construct components in plan elevation and end view.
LO3 Formulate lines at angles, apply blocks, poly-lines and groups to create an easily editable interior floor-plan.
LO4 Compose drawings adopting Architecture standards to efficiently annotate designs, using correct line weights, and scaling in a clean and legible manner.
LO5 Prepare an A1 Drawing for plotting to scale in paper space.
Pre-requisite learning
Module Recommendations

This is prior learning (or a practical skill) that is strongly recommended before enrolment in this module. You may enrol in this module if you have not acquired the recommended learning but you will have considerable difficulty in passing (i.e. achieving the learning outcomes of) the module. While the prior learning is expressed as named MTU module(s) it also allows for learning (in another module or modules) which is equivalent to the learning specified in the named module(s).

Incompatible Modules
These are modules which have learning outcomes that are too similar to the learning outcomes of this module. You may not earn additional credit for the same learning and therefore you may not enrol in this module if you have successfully completed any modules in the incompatible list.
No incompatible modules listed

Requirements

This is prior learning (or a practical skill) that is mandatory before enrolment in this module is allowed. You may not enrol on this module if you have not acquired the learning specified in this section.

Students need an intermediate level of digital literacy and an understanding of mechanical and orthographic drawing.
 

Module Content & Assessment

Indicative Content
Fundamental
1. Understanding of the fundamental commands for 2D computer drawing using Autodesk AutoCAD software. 2. Creation of a customised working interface & short cut commands. AutoCAD commands and menus – line, polyline, basic commands, view, draw modify. 3. Format, layers, blocks, hatch, text & dimensioning, scaling objects, scaling from a point. 4. Drawing tools – ortho, undo, track, snap. 5. Editing – polyline, text for style, copy, fillet, extend trim, rotate, move mirror, offset. 6. Zoom – window, previous, extent, all pan. Hatching – scaling, selecting from boundaries, or points. Dimensions – linear, radius, angular, leader, setting up dimension styles. 7.Layering & use of properties – name, selecting pen widths, templates, colours & linetypes. 8. Model, layout tabs, viewports – create, reuse layout settings and create and edit layout viewports. 9. Export/importing – text, images from other packages into AutoCAD, exporting CAD to other window based packages. 10. Plot drawings – page setup plot configuration, black & white and colour printing, plot to printer, plot to file/photoshop. 11. Drawing utilities – purge, rename, creating and accessing attributes. X-referencing – 12. Model space layouts creating multiple view ports, inserting raster images 13, Essential 2D CAD commands and procedures. 14. Fundamental draw and modify commands, layer management, dimensioning, setting up and plotting from layouts. 15. Production of 2D CAD drawings.
