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.
This unit will 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:
§ Draw the title block
§ Describe geometric
projections and views in drawing
§ Outline different line
§ 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,
orientation of the three views, etc.).
§ Identify the missing third view from a choice of four
§ Identify and explain common line types used on prints.
§ Identify drafting symbols and selected features
associated with metal forming (i.e., shearforms, bends, extrusions, notches,
holes, thread callouts, etc.).
§ Select 12 basic GD&T symbols and provide a working
definition of each.
