Course Description
engineering design and drafting application. You’ll learn how to
accurately create and modify 2D and 3D geometry
that represents MEP engineering components. how to apply
intelligent data to objects, such as HVAC, electrical, and plumbing
and piping information, how to create a complete set of construction
documents and more.
