What will I learn? The course includes: Level 2 2D 1. Be able to use a CAD workstation safely 2. Be able to use key components in 2D CAD software 3. Be able to create lines and shapes relative to a coordinate 4. Be able to use text, hatch and simple dimensioning routines 5. Be able to modify existing drawings 6. Be able to output a 2D drawing layout Level 3 2D 1. Be able to use a CAD workstation safely 2. Be able to use layers, complex dimensions and text 3. Be able to use library items and external references 4. Be able to produce complex drawings 5. Be able to carry out advanced editing processes 6. Be able to use methods to cleanse a CAD drawing 7. Be able to output drawings using multiple scale views Level 3 3D 1. Be able to use a CAD workstation safely 2. Be able to set the 3D modelling environment 3. Be able to construct and edit 3D surface models 4. Be able to construct and edit a 3D solid model 5. Be able to apply commands to manipulate a 3D model 6. Be able to apply commands to view 3D models in a variety of display formats 7. Be able to output a 3D model drawing layout
• Level 2 2D - There are no formal qualifications required. However, a basic competency in the use of a PC computer and file management is necessary. • Level 3 2D - City & Guilds 7689 CAD 201 - Using 2D Computer Aided Design Software. In the absence of any formal qualifications entry will be at the discretion of the course tutor. • Level 3 3D - City & Guilds 7689 CAD 301 - Producing Mechanical Engineering Drawings using 2D CAD techniques. In the absence of any formal qualifications entry will be at the discretion of the course tutor. The nature of both the learning and assessment required for the qualification is such that candidates will need basic literacy and numeracy skills i.e. the ability to read and interpret written tasks.
Most of the course content is delivered using tutorial handouts with tutor support as required, allowing learners to progress at their own pace. Assessment is by way of practical drawing tasks and a short answer question paper.
