Introduces three-dimensional computer aided design (CAD) in the context of civil engineering and construction. Students will extend their knowledge of two-dimensional CAD to creating and modifying simple three dimensional models, and presentation techniques for three dimensional objects.
Basic principles of 3D modelling
Manipulating the User Coordinate System (UCS)
Creating 3D models
Managing 3D CAD drawings
Creating presentation drawings from 3D models
Unit Learning Outcomes express learning achievement in terms of what a student should know, understand and be able to do on completion of a unit. These outcomes are aligned with the graduate attributes. The unit learning outcomes and graduate attributes are also the basis of evaluating prior learning.
