The Advanced CAD Technical Skills Certificate is designed for students to learn a variety of techniques and skills associated with print reading for computer aided drafting. Students will learn about linetype identification and the use of lineweights, file management, industry standards in dimensioning and how to read working drawings. Additionally, students will learn basic computer aided drafting skills using AutoCAD software, 2D CAD skills. Students will develop skills in industrial dimensioning techniques and apply the ASME Y14.5 standards, and the production of industrial working drawings and working models based on ASME standards.
