Revised: November 1998 GEORGIA PERIMETER COLLEGE MATHEMATICS ACADEMIC GROUP COMMON COURSE OUTLINE COURSE ABBREVIATION ENGR 1012 CREDIT HOURS 4 semester hours COURSE TITLE Intermediate AutoCAD PREREQUISITES ENGR 100 or consent of the instructor CATALOG DESCRIPTION This is the second of a two part course which continues with the review of basic commands of AutoCAD for windows to produce two dimensional drawings and provides hands on instruction in using this industry standard software to create three dimensional engineering drawings and solid modeling. EXPECTED EDUCATIONAL RESULTS As a result of completing this course, the student will be able to do the following: 1. Create and insert blocks with attributes. 2. Edit attributes. 3. Extract attribute data from a drawing. 4. Use the display controls needed for viewing three-dimensional drawings. 5. Use three-dimensional drawing aids. 6. Produce three-dimensional representations. 7. Make and view slides, use script files to produce slide shows. GENERAL EDUCATION OUTCOMES I. This course addresses the general education outcome relating to communications as follows: A. Students enhance reading skills by reading topics from assigned text book/reference. B. Students develop writing skills by providing short answers to test questions. C. Students improve their listening skills by actively participating in class discussion/lecture or demonstration to learn basic drawing/editing commands of the software to produce three- dimensional engineering drawings. II. This course addresses the general education outcome relating to problem-solving and critical thinking skills by making them an important part of their course work. Students learn to apply technical problem-solving and use critical thinking techniques to plan preliminary steps needed to start a drawing and to implement most efficient way to complete it. The class/home assignments attempt to enhance their ability to learn and practice commands on drawing exercises from many disciplines. III. This course addresses the general education outcome relating to mathematical concepts, usage and scientific inquiry as follows: Use of appropriate scales and units to produce drawings from engineering disciplines. Develop and apply mastery on the use of cartesian/polar coordinate system for solid modeling. Assignments require calculations based on geometry to determine sizes of planar figures and use of coordinates for construction multi-views. Students organize and analyze the information required to produce drawings by Computer-Assisted Design and Drafting software package. COURSE CONTENT 1. Block attributes(5%) 2. Slides, scripts and slide shows(5%) 3. User coordinate systems (5%) 4. Display controls, view-points, view-ports, dynamic views (10%) 5. Paper-space techniques; 3D polylines, xyz filters (5%) 6. Wire-frame modeling concepts : elevation, thickness and Hide(15%) 7. Surface modeling concepts: 3dface, 3dmesh, revsurf, tabsurf, edgesurf, rulesurf (20%) 8. Solid modeling concepts: boolean operations, extrusions, revolutions, intersections, 3D primitives (20%) 9. Editing 3D drawings (10%) 10. Photo-realistic rendering and shading (5%) ENTRY LEVEL COMPETENCIES Upon entering this course the student should be able to do the following: Satisfy course objectives as described in common course outline of ENGR100. ASSESSMENT OF EXPECTED EDUCATIONAL RESULTS I. COURSE GRADE The course grade is to be determined by the individual instructor by variety of evaluation techniques consistent with the overall college policy including the class attendance. The procedure should include at least two tests (30% to 35%) and a comprehensive final examination (25% to 30%) a final drawing project (20%) and class/home work (25%). The student with approval of the instructor should select final drawing project. Instructor must ensure that project approved employs at least 80-90% of all commands in the software that were covered in the course. II. DEPARTMENTAL ASSESSMENT Assessment of the expected educational results of this course must be conducted every five years. The assessment instrument will be a drawing project and selected questions that cover majority of the topics in the course content section from the final examination. III. USE OF ASSESSMENT FINDINGS The Engineering committee will evaluate the findings and determine the level of success in expected educational results in the form of a report and consider recommending to the Discipline Academic Group executive committee, any changes in the curriculum.
