Description: Advanced AutoCAD techniques in constructing three-dimensional objects and symbols, dimensioning and text; advanced techniques for projection, rotation, and translation of objects; advanced plotter use.

MCCCD Official Course Competencies
1. Construct a three-dimensional object, using three-dimensional rotation to obtain views, sectioning the object as required, and detailing views of the object. (I)
2. Dimension all parts of an object, linearly, circularly, and angularly, using labels, leaders, and various text positioning techniques. (II)
3. Create and store symbol libraries used in mechanical, electronic, and construction drafting technology. (III)
4. Generate composite drawings, using the appropriate symbol libraries for mechanical, electronic, and construction technologies. (IV)
5. Use advanced techniques of projection, rotation, translation, and scaling to create complex three-dimensional objects. (V)
6. Use plotters to obtain drawings of different scales and compositions. (VI)
MCCCD Official Course Competencies must be coordinated with the content outline so that each major point in the outline serves one or more competencies. MCCCD faculty retains authority in determining the pedagogical approach, methodology, content sequencing, and assessment metrics for student work. Please see individual course syllabi for additional information, including specific course requirements.
