TEACHING COMPUTER-AIDED DRAFTING.

Research output: Contribution to specialist publicationArticle

Abstract

A shift is occurring in industrial practice from traditional pen and board drafting work to computer-aided design and drafting (CAD/D) systems. Because of this industrial trend toward CAD/D, it makes sense to introduce a drafting course aimed specifically at teaching computer-aided drafting concepts. Ideally, such a course would use an industrial-quality CAD/D workstation. Studens would be taught the principles of computerized drafting techniques, and the assigned exercises on the computer. Laboratory work would be an integral part of the course. The hardware and software chosen and developed for the Minnesota State vo-tech Schools are described.
