2D outline drawings of various degrees of complexity with AutoCAD®. The outline
drawings it creates are closed polylines marking the boundaries of various types of
objects, which can include elementary entities (lines and arcs)
as well as complex blocks and curves (ellipses and splines).
What sets the TotalBoundary (Pro) utility apart from AutoCAD's built-in tools (such as BOUNDARY, BPOLY)
and from other third-party programs is its high productivity and stability, and also the
quality of the outlines it generates. The inbuilt algorithm for detecting spacing (gaps)
between neighboring objects allows users to create enclosed outline polylines with
exceptional accuracy. The program can process tens of thousands of objects extremely
efficiently (in a matter of seconds), flawlessly generating
highly complex outline polylines in the selected drawings.
Upon completion of the program, students will be able to.Identify the occupations that use drafting language, basic techniques used in sketching and
computer-aided design fundamentals.Recognize different sketching methods, various measuring tools and proper notation, and basic drafting math
Identify the principal views of orthographic projection; the perimeter, area,
and volume of different geometric shapes; tolerancing techniques; and dimensions
Illustrate the capabilities, applications, and development of AutoCAD to draw
basic objects using lines, circles, arrays, and arcs.Illustrate the advanced applications of AutoCAD including plotting/printing, drawing file storage and sharing, software personalization, and basic 3D modeling
Prepare complete sets of architectural and civil drawings including a site plan, transit lines, and plans and profiles from survey information
Prepare complete HVAC drawings, electrical diagrams and cable assemblies, industrial
electrical schematics, and electronic block and schematic diagrams.
This course will cover the essential core topics for working with the AutoCAD software. The course will teach you some basic tools that enable the student to create and edit simple 2D drawings, and then continue to develop with those tools to create more complex drawings. The topics you will learn during this course will help you gain the necessary knowledge and skills to become a more effective CAD user such as:
Understanding the AutoCAD workspace and user interface
Using basic drawing, editing, and viewing tools
Organizing drawing objects on layers
Inserting reusable symbols (blocks)
Preparing a layout to be plotted
Adding text, hatching, and dimensions
International College of Technical Education
AutoCAD computer-aided design software has several design options,
such as adding text, that businesses can use when creating technical drawings.
When using text in a drawing, you may want to make changes beyond those that the
standard text controls allow, such as the font choice and text size. Converting the text
to polylines gives you more control over the look of the text in your drawing.
"Exploding" the text converts it to polylines.
