Course Objectives: This course is a basic introduction to the required content of engineering drawings. The principles of orthographic projection and an intro to geometric dimensioning and tolerancing are also included.
Targeted Audience: Anyone who needs to create or read an engineering drawing. This GD&T training course is for mechanical engineers, designers, drafters, quality, inspection, manufacturing, tooling, production, procurement, and purchasing.
Program Description: This course focuses on the basics of engineering drawings. These skills are essential in mechanical design, production and inspection. GD&T training students will develop skills to draw and visualize parts using orthographic projection (multi-view drawings) thru hands-on practice. Participants will use cutting planes to create sectional views and learn to project auxiliary views.
Students will understand the importance of drawing management such as; title blocks, bill of materials, drawings notes, revisions etc. The course will also cover the application and interpretation of dimensions, surface finishes, screw threads/fasteners, and welding symbols. This GD&T training program also introduces various manufacturing processes to produce mechanical parts and assemblies. In addition, the students will be provided with a simple introduction to geometric dimensioning and tolerancing symbols and terms. Program may also be customized to company parts and prints.
This GD&T Program is available in instructor-led virtual and onsite training.
