This course will introduce the student to computer-aided drafting (CAD) utilizing Microstation software. Microstation fundamentals will be taught, including drawing formats, placing and manipulating elements, measurements, cells, patterning, dimensioning, reference files and three-dimensional modeling. Drawings will be created and plotted.
