You could start with a general search for Penn Foster. You could also search on the project number.

Thanks for reply,

 

Im sorry I couldn't find any thread for this specific project No. 05404401 elective project(civil drafting). I have been confused in the following paragraph mentioned in project booklet pg 30. The rectangular area to be surveyed is located in a state in which all surveys are based on the metes and bounds sustem. In this system, the origin (or point 0,0) for the survey is at some known point. That known point could be the corner of another parcel of land, a benchmark, or a premanent fixture of some kind. In this project, the known point will be Bench Mark 1006. The southwest corner of the rectangular area to be surveyed is 563.37' from BM#1006 at a bearing of S43D52'41".

So the value of bearing S43D52'41" doesn't seem right as it doesn't ends with E or W (direction).Iwould greatful to u if u please guide me how to deal with this bearing value.I am just assuming that it should be s43d52'41"w, but not sure,not confident.

 

Thanks

Thanks

Yes, one would expect the bearing to be complete with the E/W direction.

 

I'll have to switch over to my CAD computer and see if I have a copy of this project. As the Terminator was wont to say.....

 

I'll be back.

 

OK....I'm back. Are we talking about the Olsen Village project?

Thanks for the PDF.

 

It looks familiar in one respect. I think it is a revised version of the old Project 6. The student lays out a grid, adds all the spot elevations and using those interpolates new elevations to establish the contours.

The old Project 6 started out like this:

 

"Ms. Capitano is a property owner who wants to build a residence on her land. The land is an odd-shaped piece of property in a relatively hilly area on the outskirts of town. Before she decides on the actual location for her house, she hires The Spinone Firm, a civil engineering company, to survey the existing roadways, buildings, trees, and contoursof the land. The company will conduct this survey at 10-foot contour intervals."

 

I agree with your earlier assessment that the bearing should be to the southwest. I've started reading ahead and found another error. The coordinates for the first of thirty existing trees is given as 106440,-72.12 which does not look right compared to all the other coordinates listed. Someone at P-F did not have the PDF thoroughly proof read.

People really need to learn that. You must exhaust all your available avenues before asking for someones help on the forums. Its just a way to be nice. :)

Maybe one thread per each project could contain just images of each plate and each thread titled so there is no confusion. Then the threads should be locked. They would be considered for "viewing purposes only" and not a place to ask/answer questions. How does that sound? We'd have to get the cooperation of one of the mods to assist.

 

Example of thread title:

 

Penn-Foster AutoCAD course - Project 6 ( Civil ) - Plates 1 thru 4

I would Like that. I think I have some of the completed projects from Penn Foster that I took in DWG format which I could export into a JPEG for viewing purposes only If you need them.

 

But otherwise that is a great Idea it would stop an overflow of new threads that have already been answered already

That would be most generous of you but I would advise stripping out any personal information before creating the image.

 

Did you do all the projects and one elective as well?

 

Almost everything I have, with the exception of the Oleson Village project that I recently instructed someone on, was given over to me by a former CADTutor member who took the P-F course. The only stipulations he had were 1) that I continue to assist students, as he had been doing, with their questions and 2) and that I not post the actual DWG files only images (JPG or PNG).

Yes, I can strip out any relevant information.

 

Can I send you the DWG's to you through a private avenue?

 

I don't have everything but I do have some dwgs that are done. But take note that they are not 100% correct

Can you somehow markup where the drawings may not be correct?

 

I can PM you with my email address if you want.

Sure, I can leave little notes in the drawing itself, if I can find the mark ups. But I will see how much Info I have and modify it accordingly.

 

A PM will be great. Thanks!

 

Also, Hopefully we can streamline this forums for this course and have a locked thread or archive of the projects with explanations on what to expect and what skills needed to be learned in order to proceed.
