    Yes you are correct. I will work on the additions/changes to the drawing over the weekend, as well as the other plates. That does make sense and is why I left those details out. I just saw it on one of the images in another thread and thought I would ask.

    No questions about the supply opening. I put that there cause I thought that is what you were referring to when you mentioned the garage.

    Hopefully I can finish all 5 projects within the allotted time period.

    I think Penn-Foster gives the student way more latitude in what is acceptable to submit as a finished drawing than some of us might. I've seen images of drawings posted where I think the student should get a grade of "C" only to have the student come back and say they got an "A". I guess I must be too picky. LOL

    I wish you well in your completion of all the projects. Stop by anytime with more questions if and when the need arises. Good luck.

    Grades other than "A" are not politically correct. You could damage the student's self esteem and traumatize him if you told him he did it wrong. ........... ............ .................... ................... ............... Sorry, that was as long as I could keep a straight face.

    I doubt that even crossed Penn-Foster's mind. I think it is mainly all about the money. Get them in, get them signed on, get the money then get them out the door as quickly as possible with the least amount of contact. Next! Now serving number 23,567.

    I don't think the projects have changed much, if at all, in the last five years.

    I don't think so either, I just couldn't resist. My wife is a kindergarten teacher in public schools, and she wages a constant battle with the "PC" police. She sent a note home the other day to one kid's parents with a list of phonics she wanted them to coach him on. The note said their son was struggling with understanding how to sound out certain letter combinations (exact quote) and that it would help if the could give him extra practice at home. They were in the principal's office the next day to complain about the "strongly worded and insulting letter" that teacher had sent home about their brilliant son. The quote I gave was what they found to be strongly worded and insulting.

    Hi,

    So this may be a very dumb question....all of the plates are being drawn in model space and submitted in the same .dwg file....am I correct?

    If this is the case, when it says the details are to be drawn 4x its actual size, this means scaling will be done in model space and if something is 6" in length it will be 2' in length and not reflect its true length....what's the sense in that? unless I am missing something, which is entirely possible!

    There is no sense in that since AutoCAD has had the ability to create paper space layouts for several years. It is one of the major aspects of the P-F course that I just don't understand how they can justify neglecting.
