CIVL6034 - Design Graphics

banner1
Title:Design Graphics
Long Title:Design Graphics
Module Code:CIVL6034
 
Duration:1 Semester
Credits: 5
NFQ Level:Fundamental
Field of Study: Civil Engineering
Valid From: Semester 1 - 2019/20 ( September 2019 )
Module Delivered in 3 programme(s)
Module Coordinator: DES WALSH
Module Author: TED MC KENNA
Module Description: This module aims to give the student a comprehensive introduction to industry standard methods for communicating engineering design intent. Learners will gain practical knowledge of the use of relevant 2D/3D digital modelling tools while they will also develop hand sketching techniques. The student will be expected to produce both a hardcopy and a digital portfolio, comprising hand sketches, 3D models, drawings and/or other appropriate media.
Learning Outcomes
On successful completion of this module the learner will be able to:
LO1 Produce, edit and print 2D drawings using industry standard digital tools.
LO2 Develop 3D parametric models of components and/or buildings using industry standard digital tools.
LO3 Produce 2D/3D annotated hand sketches/drawings.
LO4 Manage digital portfolio within a structured file management system.
LO5 Produce a hardcopy portfolio conveying engineering requirements graphically.
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.

Module Content & Assessment

Indicative Content
Hand sketching/drawing
Using techniques to develop conversational sketches, sectional, isometric and perspective sketches/drawings for components/systems intrinsic to buildings and/or elements of infrastructure. Sketches may be presented as isolated or combined in philosophy/storyboard form.
Introductory 2-D Drawings
Generate 2-D drawings with industry standard digital tools using draw and modify tools. Use of model and paper space.
3-D parametric modelling - basic components
Develop basic solid models involving sketching a profile, setting dimensions and constraints, basic features e.g. extrude, revolve, holes, chamfer, pattern features etc.
3-D parametric modelling - basic building structure
Develop a model of a basic building using grids, levels, elements and imported component families.
File Management
Utilise a structured file management system to manage the storage and retrival of files.
Portfolio
Generate a portfolio of 2D and 3D drawings, dimensioned and printed to scale on an appropriate template.
