Architectural Drafting I

ARC 105

Course Description

Teaches fundamentals of architectural drafting including linework emphasis, lettering design, symbol applications, multiview projections relative to architectural drawings, one point perspective, two point perspective, graphic design elements, and presentation of floor plans, sections and elevations. Studies space requirements and method or representing basic residential elements. Includes demonstrations and instruction in basic procedures of CAD. (45-45)

Outcomes and Objectives

Draw a floor plan at 1/4" scale, given a floor plan sample at 1/8" scale.

Objectives:

  • Scales and draws using basic tools.
  • Represents walls doors, windows, fixtures, appliances, and other plan related items with lines, circles, and arcs.
  • Demonstrates basic standard sizes of walls, doors, cabinets, shelves, and other items used on typical floor plan drawings.
  • Demonstrates basic dimensioning techniques.

Draw a floor plan at 1/4" scale, given a partially completed floor plan sample at 1/8" scale.

Objectives:

  • Scales and draws using basic tools.
  • Represents walls doors, windows, fixtures, appliances, and other plan related items with lines, circles, and arcs.
  • Demonstrates basic standard sizes of walls, doors, cabinets, shelves, and other items used on typical floor plan drawings.
  • Demonstrates basic dimensioning techniques.

Draw a large scale wall section, given a sample wall section at small scale.

Objectives:

  • Practices drawing in 3/4" or 1" scale.
  • Draws wall sections.
  • Applies notes to the wall section drawing using left margins and groups of notes.
  • Applies notes to the wall section drawing using left margins and groups of notes.
  • Demonstrates methods for assembling selected materials into a wall assembly.

Draw three cross sections of the plan used for outcome #2 given a list of material requirements and a sample cross section.

Objectives:

  • Targets locations for cross section development.
  • Demonstrates 1/4" scale cross sections.
  • Establishes heights of planes and points critical to cross section development.
  • Constructs selected roof slopes.
  • Applies all objectives from wall section outcome #4.

Draw four exterior elevations of the plan used for outcome #2.

Objectives:

  • Translates lines from plan drawings to create the vertical lines required for elevations.
  • Translates lines from cross section drawings to create the horizontal lines required for elevations.
  • Renders exterior symbols to represent exterior view of materials used on the building.
  • Draw a selected interior one point perspective, given simple drawings, classroom demonstration, and textbook discussion.Interprets appropriate ingress/egress codes.

Draw a floor plan at 1/4" scale derived from a magazine" published floor plan.

Objectives:

  • Establishes scale when no scale is given.
  • Assigns recommended sizes and clearances to typical room arrangements.
  • Distinguishes between published dimensions and required dimensions required by building code or general use requirements.
  • Applies all objectives required in outcome # 1 and # 2.

Draw an isometric object given several choices and given an example drawing.

Objectives:

  • Represents an object in three dimensions.
  • Represents an object in three dimensions.
  • Demonstrates axis dimensioning techniques required.
  • Demonstrates technique of displaying circular objects on isometric surfaces.

Draw a selected interior one point perspective, given simple drawings, classroom demonstration, and textbook discussion.

Objectives:

  • Draws elevation view of subject wall.
  • Establishes horizon and vanishing point.
  • Draws 3D framework by connecting and extending lines from the VP through the edges of the subject wall.
  • Determines the desired viewing extents within the 60 degree cone of vision.
  • Determines the location of the diagonal vanishing point and shall complete the 3D grid construction.
  • Completes the 3D drawing within the 3D perspective.

Complete a final project to be assigned.

Objectives:

  • Draws a choice of exterior perspective drawing (using the Goff method) of a building exterior or an assigned mini" set of construction drawings of a small garage structure. (Lawrence Technological University students for transfer must elect the exterior perspective as the final project.)
