General Description

The objective of this course is to introduce the basic principles of orthographic projection and provide the participants the necessary skills required to create and interpret engineering and manufacturing drawings.  These skills are essential in mechanical design, production and inspection. 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. Training in drafting/print reading will also include discussion and the introduction to various manufacturing processes that are necessary 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 will be customized to company parts and prints.
