This course deals with the practices and techniques of graphical communication application of drafting instruments, lettering scale and units of measure; descriptive geometry, orthographic projections, auxiliary views, dimensioning sectional views, pictorial drawing requirements of engineering working drawings and assembly and exploded detailed drawings.
To enable students to acquire and use engineering drawing skills as a means of accuracy, clearly communicating ideas, information, and instructions.
By the end of this course, the student should be able to:
Locate title block
Demonstrate different geometric projections and views in drawing
Describe different line types.
Apply different drawing skills in engineering fields.
A student on completing this course is expected to:
- Locate Title Block, revision level, and scale information and explain the importance of each.
- Distinguish an isometric projection from an orthographic projection and explain the differences of each.
- Apply principles (rationale and application) of orthographic projection (i.e., most common views used, most important view, the orientation of the three views, etc.).
- Identify the missing third view from a choice of four possible responses.
- Identify and explain common line types used on prints.
- Identify drafting symbols and selected features associated with metal forming (i.e., shear forms, bends, extrusions, notches, holes, thread callouts, etc.).
- Select 12 basic GD&T symbols and provide a working definition of each.
