Short description: Introduction to programming language Python in order to perform basic engineering computations. Practical application of AutoCAD software to viewing, creating and modifying engineering drawings, designing in the field of environmental engineering, creating three dimensional models, making visualisations and printing.
Full description: Concept of algorithm. Simple and structural instructions. Data types. Functions and procedures. Using Python language for computations, data format conversions and graphical presentation of results. Interaction of the program with application environment. Application of AutoCAD software to drafting of 2D drawings: units, coordinates, drawing limits, model space and paper space, vector objects, drawing with precision, creating and modifying objects, layers, styles, blocks, text, dimensioning, external references and plot drawing to scale. Modelling in three dimensional (3D) space: creating solid, surface and frame models, modifying 3D objects, creating cross sections and standard views, rendering and printing of 3D drawings.
