INDES 262 Introduction to Computer-Aided Design • 5 Cr.
Introduces computer-aided design for designers. Covers the role and application of CAD in graphic communication and interior design while creating two-dimensional drawings. Hands-on work in the CAD lab familiarizes students with the hardware and software. Prerequisite: INDES 171 with a C- or better.
After completing this class, students should be able to:
- Employ computer hardware, peripherals, operating system and software skills and knowledge in the design process to demonstrate their appropriate use in design presentation and documentation.
- Produce drafted lines, using Computer Aided Drafting (CAD) application, with appropriate thickness, opacity, and precision.
- Produce a legible and consistent style of conventional architectural lettering using Computer Aided Drafting (CAD) programs to convey written information.
- Create technically accurate two-dimensional depictions of interior spaces and objects using drawing commands and printing them to proper architectural scale.
- Demonstrate basic proficiency with two-dimensional drawing and productivity commands by tutorial practice and application of basic Computer Aided Drafting (CAD) skills in an interior design documentation project.
- Select and use appropriate Computer Aided Drafting (CAD) tools and procedures in the design process, and appraise the benefits of using a Computer Aided Drafting (CAD) system versus manual drafting, by applying comparable Computer Aided Drafting (CAD) drafting techniques to produce an interior design documentation project.
