Advanced AutoCAD Architectural Desktop
ADV ARCH CAD
CLASS CODE: ARCH 210 CREDITS:  3
DIVISION: PHYSICAL SCIENCE & ENGINEERING
DEPARTMENT: ARCHITECTURE & CONSTRUCTION
GENERAL EDUCATION: This course does not fulfill a General Education requirement.

CATALOG DESCRIPTION: Advanced AutoCAD Architectural Desktop routines and procedures: 3-D modeling and design, video and animation, translation of modeling design to working drawings, and specific commercial applications.
The class will use microcomputers along with AutoCAD 2000i Desktop Version 3.3 software.
DESCRIPTION: ARCH 210 offers a more detail understanding to the power of Architectural Desktop. The use of 3D design and drafting will be more emphasized. In the past use of AutoCAD, the process of drafting was simply drafting a series of lines and curves parallel to one another to represent walls and other elements in the architectural plan. This process was often time consuming and labor intensive. When design changes occur, the lines must be created from scratch from additional lines and circles, which maintained no relationship to the lines and circles that comprise the original plan. Architectural Desktop offers true architectural objects, which parameters are real as it relates to other objects.
It is recommended that students be skilled or familiar with conventional drafting fundamentals. It is also recommended that students have an understanding of basic Windows commands and operations. The student must be familiar with AutoCAD and the Basics of Architectural Desktop 3.
