    Default Penn Foster Basketball court project

    Registered forum members do not see this ad.

    Anyone have to make a basketball court yet. I just downloaded the sketch, and i was looking to get a jumpstart on it. I haven't found anyone posting on the topic, so i just wanted to know if there are any other students that have posted questions. Thanks. Yes ReMark I'm backkkkk! Lol

    I thought you had finished?

    This is the first I have heard about the basketball court project. What is the student expected to do?

    Yeah I'm in my final semester, and i have a second autocad project. I will know more info when i get the book, but it looks like a basketball game. I can send you a preliminary sketch on it. Of course their teachings and explanations seem a little vague to me. Let me know if your interested. I can pm some info. I'm curious what your thoughts are.

    Sure, send me a PM. I can't wait to see what they came up with this time.

    I got it. So in essence the student is being asked to create a full set of drawings for the manufacture of a desktop basketball game. From what I have seen (diagrams) and read in the instructions it is one of the more well thought out projects that Penn-Foster has come up with. Perhaps all my emails, which to this day remain unanswered, did some good after all.

    Given what you have accomplished already I see no reason why you could not complete this project entirely on your own.

    FYI: You are the first student to mention this particular project.

    BTW...the following lines, taken directly from the PDF you sent caught my eye.

    "With a little trial and error (and possibly some help from user groups and other Internet resources), you’ll be able to successfully complete this course no matter what version of AutoCAD you use."

    Did you end up buying the book "Engineering Graphics Essentials" by Kirstie Plantenberg? if so, what did you think of the book and the DVD that came with it?

    I see near the end of the book there are a number of exercises that start off with the words..."Use a CAD package to create an orthographic projection of the following object. Draw the three standard views." Question: Does Penn-Foster at any point tell the student of the many ways 2D views can be extracted from 3D models? Do they even touch upon the subject of 3D modelling using AutoCAD?

    When i get the books and dvd I will answer those questions. I was a little confused, because it seems to me the Oleson village project was twice as hard, and after the current readings i said to myself this doesn't look so bad.Thanks for the review, and i will be sure to keep in touch.

    I read the fourth edition of the author's book online (PDF) and it has little if anything to do with CAD per se and more about drafting technique.

    ok, well I have officially started the course. they sent me the 2013 Engineering graphic essentials. The book is informative, so I hope to get this right. In lesson 3 where I have to do the 8 projects; am I drawing the 3D version first, then the three views? 3D is new for me, so I hope I can pick it up. I am starting the first project today.
