DDGT120 - Digital Design Graphics Technology 1 Fall 2019

The first of a four course series in the Digital Design Graphics Technology A.S. Degree program. This course enables the student to learn and apply the fundamental skills of technical drawing towards the creation of graphical engineering documents per current industry standards. Topics covered include national and international drafting standards, drawing scales, two-dimensional and three-dimensional geometric construction, orthographic projection, auxiliary views, sectioning, dimensioning, external references, creation and modification of templates, computer-aided drafting (CAD), basic reverse engineering of parts, and three-dimensional modeling using the latest version of the Autodesk AutoCAD software.
