AutoCAD: The Non-Test Midterm Examination

BEFORE YOU START: Create a new folder in your AUTOCAD folder, called “NON-TEST”. Save the following figures into this folder, call them KITCHEN.dwg and HOUSE.dwg.

A NOTE TO NON-TEST TAKERS:  This is liable to be one of the more difficult projects that you have been given in your High School career.  That is OK.  Take your work one step at a time and you will be fine!  Remember, I am looking for QUALITY, not QUANTITY on the Houses!

THE NON-TEST MIDTERM PROBLEMS:

PROBLEM ONE: The Kitchen Problem (50 Points): Replicate the Kitchen below, make sure to make use of any AutoCAD commands necessary. Include all details possible. Please make the drawing to scale, according to the dimensions on the right side of the diagram.

PROBLEM TWO: The HOUSE Problem (100 Points)- There are FOUR versions of "The House Problem," three houses that are all of roughly the same difficulty level and a CHALLENGE house. All of these drawings will be difficult. The student is expected to select a drawing to replicate that will be a CHALLENGE of the student's abilities in AutoCAD. If you have an A or a B in this class, I would like for you to consider doing the CHALLENGE problem, but you would be nuts to actually DO it.

Your job is to do the very best that you can to EXACTLY REPLICATE the house/building that you have been assigned.  Every line and every box must be included.  I will be grading heavily based upon the amount of work that you put into the project, as well as the QUALITY of the work created.

NOTE: EACH OF THE IMAGES BELOW WILL CLICK THROUGH TO A MUCH LARGER VERSION OF THE IMAGE, USE THIS TO GET CLOSEUP VIEWS OF YOUR HOUSE/BUILDING!

HOUSE ONE:

HOUSE TWO:

HOUSE THREE (this building is still standing and is a landmark in Fayetteville, NC):

HOUSE FOUR (CHALLENGE, this house is still standing and is a museum in Chicago):

A NOTE REGARDING COMPLEX ELEMENTS:  I would like to see you make an effort to include all decorative elements, such as the the turned posts in front of HOUSE ONE, the tower, clock and weather vane on HOUSE THREE or the decorative work on HOUSE FOUR.  

GRADING: You will be graded based upon the quality of your KITCHEN and HOUSE, as well as your work ethic in completing the project.  150 points total (Kitchen= 50 points, House= 100 points.)
