The 2D Design module covers the main concepts and skills needed to create two-dimensional drawings, change object properties, and print or plot outputs.
Computer-aided design (CAD) is used extensively in a wide range of industries. CAD skills are in demand in digital sectors, although with CAD applications even non-technical professionals can create complex 2D designs and concepts.
This module is suitable for students and working professionals in fields related to the architectural, engineering, and construction sectors. It would also be of value to designers in areas such as product development, gaming, and technology.
Successful candidates will be able to create, edit, and output a two-dimensional design or drawing. After passing this module, candidates will feel confident using a 2D CAD application to create high-quality designs. They will be able to:
understand how 2D design applications are used to create and edit drawings
recognise when to use layers and levels
know the main operations of a 2D CAD application and how to use them
apply advanced features, such as block and cells, to a project
understand how to output a drawing for plotting or printing
Leaving Certificate or equivalent, fluency in the English language and intermediate computer literacy level are required.
