    What town are you in?

    There should be a tech school or community college nearby.

    I was going to recommend Architectural Drafting and Design, 7th edition by Jefferies & Madsen until I saw the price for the latest addition. It's gone up substantially since I first acquired it. Maybe you can find a previous version via an online used book store. I recommend the book from an architectural drafting standpoint and not necessarily as a CAD resource although the latest version will probably put more emphasis on that aspect of the field. I might have an older version in work which I would be willing to part with at a reasonable price if you were interested.

    Ok I am going to look into finding the book. Thx


    *SLW210 What classes would you suggest to help further my knowledge to be an Architectural Draftsman? That's the ending goal.

    http://www.crti.tec.ar.us/basic_drt.html if you are near Forest City. It is pretty much a general drafting course.

    Morrelton is probably too far, but just as a reference, they have a Residential Drafting course, some may call it Architectural Drafting. http://www.uaccm.edu/Academics/Degre...fting_Cert.htm

    on the plate 1 HVAC project, how do you figure out the lengths of the ductwork? it is not specified in the directions as to how long the ductwork needs to be to connect to the different transitions and the floor outlets.

    any help would be appreciated.

    What information were you given? Were students given a PDF that described the scope of the project? Was there a sketch of the floor plan with room dimensions, etc.?

    here are the project instructions.

    i have the floorplan completed and all the outlets done. starting on the ductwork, but was confused by the instructions on how to get the lengths of the ducts.

    On page 12 the student is instructed to draw the registers first before drawing the ductwork. Did you do that? You are also instructed to center the ductwork with the register. You are told to center all floor outlets below windows unless instructed otherwise. Drawing temporary centerlines from registers and outlets may help in determining the path of your ductwork.
