I have learned more in this drafting class in just a small time of just 4 months than any other class this year. I have learned a skill that I can take outside of this high school and make more money than I could ever imagine. I have learned how to design a house. I have learned how to work a computer program called AutoCadd. AutoCadd is a computer aided drafting program that allows you to draw and design houses as well as pretty much anything you could think of. So far in this program I have learned how to operate it through a drafting school class that has been supplied by my teacher. In the class, it has helped me understand how to operate the program with ease. This class has interested me more than any other class I’ve taken in these 3+ years I have been at this school.

 7th period

 things i have learned so far i have learned how to efficiently and effectively use CAD software and to correctly draw a sufficient house plan for use in in construction of a single story house. I have also learned to effectively and efficiently use drafting tools, such as the t-sqaure the triangle and a scale, for use on a drafting board.
i have also learned the use and function of CAD commands such as: line, trim, extend, copy, fillet, block, insert, properties, offset, fill, poly line, and etc.
 you could say its been a very productive year so far

I have learned how to draw a house on the drafting board using a scale and t square. I’ve also learned the basics and fundamentals of drafting a house through Auto CAD using tools in the program such as, line, fillet, erase, copy, delete, snap, group, and ungroup. The skills I’ve learned in Auto CAD are included but not limited to, creating floor plans which have electrical appliances and dimensions in and outside of the house, creating things inside of the program like windows, making elevations, and adding structural beams accordingly. Though my base of knowledge of the program is limited, I’ve learned a lot so far.

There are four types of house plans: the one story, the two story, the one and a half, and the split level. Walls on the drawing should be four inches, and hallways should be three feet or more. The basic command line is the most used and when you want the middle of a line or object you type midp, if you want the end you type endp. The offset command is used to move lines or copy them to create objects, to use you type offset then enter the distance you want it copied over. Chprop is used to change the properties of an object or line, it is very useful for changing objects lair. Trim is used to cut off extra piece on a line or object it is used by selecting the line that is perpendicular to the line with extra on it then click enter after select the extra piece and click enter and its gone. Fillet can be used in a similar way by clicking the parts of two perpendicular lines you want. Pedit is the command to join a group of lines together. These are a few of the most basic commands. There are many drawings needed to build a house. The most important is the floor plan it tells you where everything goes in the house and how big it is. The most common scale used is the one-fourth inch equals one foot. A few other drawings needed are the Elevations, the foundation, and a section drawing. The Elevation show all four sides of the house and the roof pitch plus anything else needed on the sides of the house. The foundation plan is very important because it shows how the house is going to stand with the center blocks, the opening, and vents. The section drawing shows what part of the house looks like if it were cut from the side including the foundation underneath.

I like this drafting but i'm not so good at drafting. I try my best even on bad days when i really don't want to do anything. I'm glad your going back an teaching me the basic curriculum of the drafting class.I ended up drafting with an interior design degree because if the salary. I'm not drafting for a 2nd company, basically engineering and I'm extremely bored. I want to know what else I can do for a living with the same salary. I really don't like sitting or standing in front of a computer all day. It's revertible for anyone's health and I'm also going stir crazy as there is nothing creative about current drafting/design position.

Over the course of this nine weeks I have learned a decent amount of knowledge. I have learned how to precisely draft a structure and show dimensions on a drafting board. I have learned how to read a set of blueprints and interpret the information. I learned how to correctly and effectively use the CAD program. I have been educated in the use of commands such as line, offset, and fillet. I have also learned how to read and correctly use a scale. I also learned how to use a T-square and triangle correctly. I plan to learn more over the next semester. 103 words

What i have learned this 8 weeks is how to make different views or layers to my house drawing. At first I did not realize that there were different layers to the drawing but after some time i started getting better at it and have gotten caught up on the courses. I have chosen to go do the mechanical drawing part of the courses then return to the other drawing. Once i finish the mechanical, the other parts should be easier for me. My hope is to be a decent way through the mechanical drawing by Christmas break. This is what i have done and learned.
