At present this course is not scheduled to be offered.

Intended learning outcomes

Upon successful completion of the course, students are expected to be able to:

  • explain which drawing formats and types can be used in a model-oriented CAD project
  • be aware of reference lines, grid lines, coordinate systems, and measurement units
  • explain the various standard line widths in a drawing how they correspond to colours when plotted
  • describe drawing size and scale, as well as the connection between objects in their natural size, in model drawings and on paper in CAD programmes
  • handle layers and be aware of standard layer systems
  • write text in building standard size and adjust it for different drawing environments
  • draw and edit objects in CAD modelling environments and handle it in a paper environment
  • create and use blocks and symbols in a CAD programme
  • manage plotted printouts of model environments and layout environments, made-to-scale plots and plots with correct line widths while using plotting table files
  • use external references (links) between drawings and know how to use these in the planning phase
  • handle application programmes when setting up a construction project and 3D modelling

Course main content

  • Basic theory on building standards and drawing techniques, system lines and coordinate systems for staking points and explanations about various types of drawings: plan, elevation, sectional, detail and site plans
  • Basic information on drawing types and planning work in the building industry
  • User interfaces and drawing environments in CAD programmes
  • Coordinate systems, lines, line types and managing scaling line types in CAD
  • Drawing and editing commands
  • Layers and plotting
  • Text and dimensions
  • Hatching on two-dimensional surfaces
  • Blocks in construction drawings
  • Documentation and managing layout as well as regulations on plotting and printing
  • External references in practice
  • Creating projects in application programmes for construction
