COURSE CONTENT

Student Learning Outcomes:
Upon completion of the course, students will be able to:
Untitled document
1. Demonstrate aptitude in application of CAD software through creation of a landscape plan package of construction drawings.
2. Critique CAD drawings done by other students and professionals based on graphic conventions and knowledge of principles of landscape drafting and design.
 
 

Objectives: Untitled document
Students will be able to:
1. Develop a professional landscape plan package from initial base map, to schematic design, to construction
    documentation drawings.
2. Organize files for a CAD project including external references, project documentation, and portable document
    format (PDF) plan drawings.
3. Create illustrative graphics to convey design projects including sections, section elevations, and perspective
    drawings.
4. Create a Color-dependent plot style (.CTB).
5. Design and draft custom detail drawings for landscape features such as fences, retaining walls, and planters.
6. Create custom annotation styles for labels and leader lines in a CAD drawing.
7. Develop material quantity take-offs from a landscape CAD drawing.
