I recently made a move, and I lost some materials.
My due date is swiftly encroaching, anyone available to shoot me a PDF/scan of PLATE A for the home layout, and or a .DWG? (the latter preferred)

Isn't that plate included in one of the many threads here at CADTutor regarding that particular project?

Alas, my search is to no avail. Have you seen it around?

Unfortunately no details are given about the wall dimensions and such for the layout. :(

Ask Penn Foster for another copy of the 'materials' then?

Did you lose the PDF file for the project? I'm pretty sure I have a copy on my CAD computer.

I was never provided a PDF unfortunately, just a print, but that is quite a ways from me.

As far as I know each project had a PDF file to go along with it. I think I've even seen one PDF that had all four projects included. Not sure if the school provided it or one of the students put it together.

Hi there, I think I have the plate you need, I scanned it with my printer scanner but it is in 2 parts due to the scanner not being big enough for the whole thing...hope this works!

hi there,



I am currently working on the elective project for electricaland electronic schematic drafting and I am now facing some difficulty in thekitchen. I would like to know how point 2 looks like. “It says that: Above therange is a hood with a light fan.” Because I cannot find the symbol for hood inmy study unit would like an illustration of how this connection looks like. Iwould also like to know if what I have done so far is correct.



Thank you



Maria

You don't need a symbol for a hood. In plan view the range would be shown as a rectangle with an additional line for the hood above. There will be a symbol for the 220 volt circuit for the range and I'd use a note that reads something like the following with an arrow pointing to the range.

"Hood w/light & fan, vent to outside air".

You have posted the same basic question three if not four times. The last person to respond to a similar question was back in February, 2013. There are not that many Penn-Foster students who decide to do an "elective" project as most of them are at a point where they just want to get their certificate and be done with the course. You can spend most of your time asking for PDF files of these various plates for this project but I am telling you now the chances of getting what you want are pretty damn slim judging by the number of responses I have seen to similar pleas for help. Post images of what you have done so far and if you have any questions post those as well.

It is NOT a good idea to post actual DWG files. Can you think of one good reason why?

In most electrical layouts that I have seen the lines for the wiring between switches and lights is shown with a dashed linetype not solid and they tend to be arcs. You can change the linetype scale for all the objects on your "Wire" layer to get the wires to show up as dashed lines. Change the scale from 1.00 to 20.

Part of the note I suggested to you is done in all lower case while the remainder is done in all upper case. Pick one or the other but don't do half the note one way and the other half a different way. That's just not good drafting practice.

You have a number of duplicate and overlapping lines in your drawing. This gives me the impression you still are unsure on how to go about doing a CAD drawing.

No. Someone else can come along and "borrow" your drawing, change the name on it to theirs and hand it in as their own work. It's called cheating.

I don't have the drawing open. I suggest you remove the drawing file from your post.

You can delete portions of your thread or remove the entire thread. Start by clicking on the Edit Post option at the lower right hand corner of the reply box.

I notice in the instructions for the project they refer to 220 volt. Your drawing calls out 200 volt.

We will need access to Sample Plate 3-A which should be the building's floor plan for starters and a copy of the isometric drawing shown on Sample Plate 3-B.
