Course Description

This unit describes the performance outcomes, skills and knowledge required to use a range of computer-aided design and drafting (CADD) program functions to produce drawings.
The focus of this unit is on the technical skills required to operate CADD, not on design skills which are covered in other units in CUV11 Visual Arts, Craft and Design Training Package.

  • Home computer - It is advisable that you have a computer at home on which to do your
    self directed work (preferably a PC rather than Mac - as there is currently no Mac platform
    for this software).  You can however use "bootcamp" or "parrallels" to run the PC version
  • Software - "AutoCAD 2015" software is available for access
    via RMIT for all students enrolled in the program. Authorisation for the software can also
    be sought via AutoDesk. Details will be given in class
  • Authorisation - You can then receive an authorisation for the use of the software for 36
    months at a time direct from AutoDesk (details will be supplied in first week)
  • Self paced online tutorial - If you find you are struggling with AutoCAD, as an RMIT student
    you will have access to the Lynda.com website tutorials. This can only be done for free via
    the link below:
    http://cat.lib.rmit.edu.au/vwebv/holdingsInfo?bibId=903707
  • Building 28, level 3 -  24 hour, 7 day a week access is available in all enrolled RMIT
    students in this open access lab. Booking may be required (and will ensure you have
    a PC for you)
  • Building 94, level 5, room 13 will be available most nights after 6pm till midnight (refer to to
    timetable located on door of room). Note, an "access" form will need to be filled in and
    approved prior to use of this room.
  • During the course, video files will be uploaded into the relevant blackboard folder for
    assistance

Overview of Assessment

Assessment for this course is project based.


Assessment Tasks

Task 1 to 10:
During the course of the semester, you will be given weekly homework to and practice.
These will be a series of drawing exercises.  At the start of each subsequent class, you will then be
required to carry out the tasks (open book - or should I say computer) and graded against both 
speed and competency. 


Assessment Matrix

Assessment Matrix
For assessment matrix, refer to the "Blackboard" link located in MyRMIT". This file is
the "assessment" folder in the relevant course folder

All components must be addressed to gain a pass in this course and be deemed

CHD  - Competent with High Distinction
CDI    - Competent with Distinction
CC     - Competent with Credit
CAG  - Competency Achieved – Graded
NYC   - Not Yet Competent
DNS   - Did Not Submit for Assessment

Other Information

Attendance:
The major learning experience involves studio based exercises, demonstration and production. It
is strongly advised that students attend all sessions in order to engage in the required learning
activities, ensuring the maximum opportunity to gain the competency.

Special Consideration Policy (Late Submission):
All assessment tasks are required to be completed to a satisfactory level. If you are unable to
complete any piece of assessment by the due date, you will need to apply for an extension.
Please refer to the following URL for extensions and special consideration.

Work not seen in progress:
If a student hands in any work that the teacher has never seen in class or discussed with the
student prior to the submission, the teacher can refuse to assess the work on the basis of
authentication issues.
