Program Overview

AutoCAD is a world-leading software application for computer-aided design (CAD) and drafting. This intensive series includes all content from AutoCAD I, II and III.

AutoCAD I will enable you to produce 2D drawings on a Computer Aided Design and Drafting (CADD) microcomputer using AutoCAD software. 

Topics include a user interface, commands, system variables, AutoCAD drawings, drawing theory, initial settings, drawing objects, constructing and editing 2D geometry, correcting errors, object verification, measurement, controlling graphics display, grids, text, layers, and object symbology.

AutoCAD II will provide instruction and materials to enable you to produce more sophisticated 2D drawings using AutoCAD software. 

Topics include graphics manipulation, grips, crosshatching advanced measurement, utility commands, blocks, special entities, advanced settings, viewports, advanced text, dimensioning, reference files, polylines, printing and plotting.

AutoCAD III will provide instruction and materials to enable you to produce 3D models and multi-view drawings on a Computer Aided Design and Drafting (CADD) microcomputer using AutoCAD software.

Topics include isometric drawing, drawing with extrusions, XYZ point filters, world and user coordinate systems, 3D wireframes, viewing 3D models, model and paper space, creating and scaling views, setting view layer visibility, constructing multiview drawings, surfacing with vertex defined meshes and polygon meshes.

Students are required to purchase the mandatory course materials at the SAIT Bookstore (approximate cost is $110).

Part-time online and evening deliveries are also available.
