AutoCAD for the Theatre

Pierre Dussol
John Abbott College

Computer-aided drafting (CAD) is a type of software that was developed for engineers and architects. Having caught the attention of theatre companies, it is often used as a professional drafting tool for set design and production.

This fully illustrated book is organized around a practical step-by-step project: the technical drawings for the set of a play titled A Matter of Murder and Peerage in the Scottish Manor. By using AutoCAD to develop this project, students will learn computer-based techniques for 2D drafting as well as 3D modelling. By the end, students will have acquired not only valuable AutoCAD skills, but the prints of a ground plan, extended elevations, a centre line section and renderings of a 3D model, which are all suitable for a professional portfolio.

Summary: Introducing AutoCAD – Types of Theatres and Drawings – Drafting for the Theatre – The Ground Plan – The Extended Elevations – The Centre Line Section – Modelling in 3D – Finalizing and Printing Files
