Thoughts on Penn Foster drafting with autocad
DME55 posted a topic in Student Project QuestionsHello, I am considering learning drafting and auto cad. I want to take a course online that would allow me to have a flexible schedule but also have a certification of completition that would be recognized by some eployers. I have been recommended to the penn foster program because is online, inexpensive and flexible schedule-wise. But i have read a lot of mixed opinions on this course. Wanted to get some more imput from anyone that has taken the couse. I understand im going to be doing a lot of research on my own to get better with autocad and drafting but as for this course in its certificate, Would you recomend it to someone that is trying to get started with Autocad? Will i get ripped off? Is there any other online affordable courses that you would recommend instead with a certificate that would help you find a job? Thank you for your help in advanced!

PennFoster-Oleson Village-Finalization questions
sdick posted a topic in Student Project QuestionsI am currently taking the PennFoster-Drafting with AutoCAD course and a few questions on the AutoCAD Commands:Blocks and Layers Project Booklet (aka-Oleson Village). I have reviewed previous posts, but could not find a final answer. I have the drawing complete, but wanted to confirm the following questions before submitting for grading. I have emailed and called PennFoster and did not recieve a response. Anyway, If anyone has completed this and had their drawing graded, could you please help me out with the below 4 questions? Thanks in advance for help. 1). Tree S44 Location? The location has to be a typo, as it is way out of the drawing area and I confirmed my drawing and coordinates were correct. Did anyone recieve instruction on what to do here? 2). ROW, Sidewalk, and Curb location. The instructions here are very vague and confusing. I have mine on the outside of the ROW lines. 1ft from ROW then 6ft sidewalk, then 3ft parking strip, then curb. Does not seem correct to have the curb and parking strip on the other side or the side walk. 3). Plat Map for plotting- It says to activate the layer called "Trim" and draw the trim lines for plotting on it. There is no Trim layer specified in the layers they give us to add to the drawing. Is this just to go on the Yellow Border layer? 4). Does the title block and border stay in model space for plotting? It doesnt specify to do this in paper space, with a proper viewport or anything.
