PostalCAD Standardization

The intent of this course is to allow experienced USPS PostalCAD students the opportunity to modify their existing workroom floor drawings to achieve PostalCAD standardization by learning the proper cleanup procedures.

Students are required to bring the current version of their facility drawings to work on during the class. File settings, layers, equipment blocks, and graphic elements of the student’s drawings will be updated using Autodesk Map 3D 2020 and PostalCAD 2020 tools and techniques.

Class format is a combined lecture and lab where students review concepts and tools at the beginning of the session and then apply those concepts directly to their facility drawings. In addition to the group sessions during the class, time will be allowed each day for the instructor to work with students individually to assist with their drawing cleanup.
