BLPR-1031Mechanical Blueprint Reading
More Information

Learn to read and interpret blueprints and to make simple sketches while using the terminology associated with the Machine Trade. Through progressively challenging reading and sketching assignments, learn to apply drafting fundamentals or symbolism as recommended by the Canadian Standards Association.

 

CADD-1000Autodesk Inventor - Essentials
More Information

This course is designed to provide students with an introduction to and an understanding of the basic functions of Inventor solid modeling software. Students successfully completing this course will be able to produce accurate part models, assemblies and create working drawings in both imperial and metric measurements. They will understand the concepts of parametric modeling, using default templates, create sketches and features, modify sketches and features, create work features, troubleshoot modeling files and gain a basic understanding drafting principles.  Instruction will be given in a hands-on environment through a combination of lecture, demonstration, practice and assignments.

Prerequisites:
CADD-1004BIM Fundamentals
More Information

This course introduces students to the fundamentals of applying Building Information Modeling (BIM) concepts and practices to the Architectural, Engineering and Construction (AEC) design processes. Students will learn the fundamental tools, commands and workflows of creating a BIM using Autodesk Revit.

In this course, students will create comprehensive 3D architectural building information models to generate concept drawings and construction documents including plans, elevations, sections, details, schedules and 3D views of architectural projects.

Prerequisites:
CADD-1005AutoCAD Fundamentals
More Information

This course introduces students to the knowledge and skills necessary to produce 2D technical drawings using AutoCAD computer aided design (CAD) methods. Students will gain an understanding of construction and engineering drawing conventions, annotation methods, scaling and the fundamental tools and techniques using Autodesk AutoCAD software. Furthermore, students will examine how to add and modify objects, text, dimensions, hatching and blocks through the completion of moderately complex, two-dimensional working drawings using both imperial and metric units. This course is a prerequisite for CADD-1015 AutoCAD Intermediate.


Each of the three AutoCAD micro-credential courses award an official RRC Polytech digital badge that can be shared on social media, with a fourth badge awarded for completing all three of the micro-credentials.

CADD-1015AutoCAD Intermediate
More Information

This course introduces students to the knowledge and skills necessary to produce 2D technical drawings using advanced tools in AutoCAD computer aided design (CAD). Building upon the concepts learned in AutoCAD Fundamentals, students will gain an understanding of annotative scaling, layouts, scaled viewports, viewport management, block attributes and dynamic blocks using Autodesk AutoCAD software. Furthermore, students will be introduced to the use and management of external references, tables and templates. Students will complete two-dimensional working drawings using both imperial and metric units.

CADD-2001Revit 2
More Information

This course is designed to build upon the basic functions of Revit learned in Revit 1 and provide you with an understanding of the more advanced functions of Revit Building Information Modeling (BIM) software. Upon successful completion this course, you will be able to produce accurate and complete construction drawings of a simple renovation project. You will understand the concepts of phases and phase filters, demolition drawings, construction drawings, and how to build a family. Both AutoCAD and Revit are required for this course. You will be provided with access to both AutoCAD and Revit software for installation on your own computer. Instruction will be given through written and video instruction in order to produce graded assignments. Although the suggested time for this course is 10 weeks, you will work at your own pace to achieve completion within four months of registration.

Prerequisites:
CADD-3003AutoCAD 3: 3D Modelling
More Information

This course is designed to introduce students to the tools, concepts and methods of modelling 3D content in AutoCAD. Explore AutoCAD's 3D modelling and visualization capabilities while you learn to create and edit 3D surface, solid and wireframe elements for documentation and presentation.


Students are introduced to topics including:

  • create moderately complex objects in 3D;
  • modify objects in 3D;
  • apply materials and lighting;
  • apply camera perspectives;
  • set up a 3D model for rendering; and
  • convert 3D content to 2D drawings. 
Instruction is provided through written and video instruction to produce practice drawings and graded assignments. 

Although the suggested time for this course is ten (10) weeks, students will work at their own pace to achieve completion within four months of registration. 

Prerequisites:
CIAC-1002Technical Drawing FundamentalsRPL
More Information

This course introduces students to the knowledge and skills necessary to produce 2D technical drawings using hand sketching and computer aided design (CAD) methods. Students will gain an understanding of construction drawing conventions, annotation methods, scaling, and the fundamental tools and techniques using Autodesk AutoCAD software. Furthermore, students will examine how to add and modify objects, text, dimensions, hatching, and blocks through the completion of moderately complex, two-dimensional working drawings using both imperial and metric units. This course is a prerequisite for detailing and drawing courses throughout the program.

DRAF-1000Drafting Fundamentals
More Information

Practice in the use of architectural and engineering imperial and metric scales, basic lettering forms, linework techniques, material symbols, architectural conventions and techniques, orthographic and pictorial drawing. Study light wood frame construction and the production of working drawings for a small residential garage.

Prerequisites:
TRAD-1040Solid Edge - Introduction
More Information

Students will be introduced to solid modeling using Solid Edge and shown the fundamentals required to generate engineering drawings of mechanical components. Students will learn how to develop and modify solid models, as well as shop drawings. Time permitting, students will learn how to use the Assembly environment to produce assembled component layouts and the corresponding bill of material, parts list.
