DFT254AA   19986-20015 Computer Aided Drafting II: AutoCAD
1. Construct a three-dimensional object, using three-dimensional rotation to obtain views, sectioning the object as required, and detailing views of the object. (I)
2. Dimension all parts of an object, linearly, circularly, and angularly, using labels, leaders, and various text positioning techniques. (II)
3. Create and store symbol libraries used in mechanical, electronic, and construction drafting technology. (III)
4. Generate composite drawings, using the appropriate symbol libraries for mechanical, electronic, and construction technologies. (IV)
5. Use advanced techniques of projection, rotation, translation, and scaling to create complex three-dimensional objects. (V)
6. Use plotters to obtain drawings of different scales and compositions. (VI)
