House 3D Model Tutorial


Welcome to Drafting and Design. This course involves a careful examination of drafting as a tool of technical communication and for solving graphical problems. Attention is given to introducing both mechanical and architectural techniques. Students will become proficient with AutoCAD, an industry leading drafting software. We will be working together to build a cooperative community of mutual respect and shared purpose, while we prepare for an ever changing world of drafting and design.

D         60%-66.9%                 F          < 60%



Daily Work

A drawing will be assigned almost every class period. Each drawing will be graded unless there are major errors or omissions and it is returned for correction or completion. Drawings with minor detail or other non-conceptual errors will be graded as submitted.




You will have one midterm and one final exam that total to 15% of your grade. Tests will contain questions related to concepts we have covered in class and are intended to give the student information about what he or she has learned. The final exam will be comprehensive and given at the end of the course.
