Release 1

This version released with FWP Forest and Wood Products Training Package Version 6.0.

Application

This unit of competency describes the skills and knowledge required to produce various types of drawings using computer aided design software. It includes producing plans, diagrams, component details and linked materials lists.

The unit applies to timber truss or frame fabricators and engineered timber product technicians who create drawings of timber and wood products and who take responsibility for organising and completing these tasks with a high degree of self-direction.

No licensing, legislative or certification requirements apply to this unit at the time of publication.

Elements and Performance Criteria

Elements

Performance Criteria

Elements describe the essential outcomes.

Performance criteria describe the performance needed to demonstrate achievement of the element.

1.1 Determine job requirements from work order or fabrication plans and, where required, confirm with appropriate person

1.2 Identify types of drawings in set to be created with design software according to intended use

1.3 Select appropriate equipment, and check for operational effectiveness

1.4 Plan use of computer aided design software according to workplace procedures

2. Set up software

2.1 Identify software features that will best generate the required drawing outcomes

2.2 Customise design software variables, menus, drawing defaults and macros to suit production outcomes

2.3 Identify and apply basic drawing elements

3. Create 2D drawings

3.1 Create drawings using full capability of available software

3.2 Link drawing entities to database attributes to suit production outcomes

3.3 Create detailed views using various scales

Performance Evidence

An individual demonstrating competency must satisfy all of the elements and performance criteria in this unit.

There must be evidence that the individual has created a set of drawings using a design software program for at least one timber product project, and used the software to:

  • manipulate the drawing origin and entities
  • modify dimension styles
  • access libraries and define and utilise symbols and abbreviations
  • display various scaled views
  • add title block
  • prepare project to printing
  • produce a linked materials list.

Knowledge Evidence

An individual must be able to demonstrate the knowledge required to perform the tasks outlined in the elements and performance criteria of this unit. This includes knowledge of:

  • 2-dimentional (2D)
  • 3-dimentional (3D)
  • drawing elements:
  • points, line angles, circles, arcs, planes, solids and figures
  • shapes – squares, rectangles, triangles
  • bisected and divided lines
  • dimensions and hatchings
  • drawing tools:
  • delete, fillet, chamfer, erase, trim/extend, break, undo and redo
  • zoom and pan

  • formats for and inclusions of materials lists according to workplace procedures.

Assessment Conditions

Assessment of the skills in this unit of competency must take place under the following conditions:

  • physical conditions:
  • skills must be demonstrated in a timber fabrication facility or an environment that accurately represents workplace conditions
  • resources, equipment and materials:
  • computers with current software programs used to produce drawings and materials lists
  • specifications:
  • access to workplace product information and fabrication plans on which to base drawings
  • access to workplace materials' lists templates
  • access to workplace policies and procedures for producing drawings and documents using computers.

Assessors of this unit must satisfy the requirements for assessors in applicable vocational education and training legislation, frameworks and/or standards.
