Demo – AutoCAD SITE Layout


You will use AutoCAD to prepare a technically proficient site layout plant that consists of dimensions, detailed callouts, details, notes, planting plans, and plant schedules. The objective is to create a construction document set that can guide contractors to construct your design. As with Module 1, to be successful, it will be imperative for you to integrate and refine your command of layer and sheet organization, line weights, and line types.
