Summative tech  skills  on  online  soft  where  usage      

Using thru  programs  such  as  Issuu/WIX  on  making  our  own  webpage   And  using  programs  mainly  Auto  cad  and  sketch  up  for  skills  practicing  through  out  the   course.  And  a  bit  of  usage  of  Photoshop  for  website  layout  building.       I  do  think  my  online  skills  are  in  need  of  some  more  work  in  practicing  them  but  right   now  I  feel  currently  confident  with  some  sort  of  understanding  with  hwere  my  inline   skills  are  starting  to  develop.  Hopefully  over  the  next  parts  of  my  course  they  grow   stronger.     PROGRAM  DEVELOPER     (ISSUU  ON  CREATING  AND  BUILDING  YOUR  OWN  WEBSITE/BLOG)

The fillet  –  F-­‐  tool  this  tool  uses   the  two  lines  you  have  created   in  the  same  radius  to  join   together.    Meaning  it  join  two  lines  that   can  be  coordinated  in  the  same   area  and  sometimes  can  cause   two  parallel  lines  to  join   together  but  creating  an  oval   type  shape  this  can  be  used  for   creating  housing/  building  floor   plans  for  when  needing  two   intersections  to  join  together   but  they  are  not  able  to  become   one  if  they  are  past  the  radius   point.

Establishing professional  practice  when  it  comes  to  layering  on   AutoCAD    

Layering  can  be  the  use  of  your  online  drawing  or  plan  to  have   more  colour  or  layering  images  /  combining  them.  Colours  are  used   to  symbolise  the  different  types  of  line  work  that  would  be  used  for   floor  plans  and  design  ideas.       LAYERS  KEY:  HOME  KEY  then  press  layers  and  the  options  will  all   be  there.  

You  can  experiment  that  these  tools  offer  the  difference  in  your  line   thickness  do  making  them  dotted  or  more  predominant.  Then  can   differ  in  colours  and  border  type  lines/  lock  layers.  Can  create  the   heaviness  in  outside  walls  when  edit  the  settings  to.
