Course DescriptionIntroduces manual and computer-aided drafting including hand sketching, drafting standards, pictorial drawings, and dimensioning. Includes creation of 2-D drawings and 3-D solid models with AutoCAD. Prerequisites: Department approval or ENGR 101. Audit available.
Intended Outcomes for the course
Upon completion of the course students should be able to:
- Sketch two-dimensional orthographic drawings and three-dimensional isometric views.
- Create and modify two-dimensional orthographic drawings using AutoCAD software, complete with construction lines, dimensions, and layers, conforming to industry standards.
- Create three-dimensional solid models using AutoCAD software, and generate paper space layouts from model space geometry.
Outcome Assessment Strategies
Individual and full class discussion; lab drawing assignments; exams; and final project deliverables may be used to assess
Course Content (Themes, Concepts, Issues and Skills)
Themes, concepts, and issues:
- Civil, industrial, manufacturing, mechanical and other engineering students must be able to visualize solid objects to succeed in subsequent mechanics and design courses.
- Engineers need to be able to communicate with each other, and with manufacturing and construction personnel, using graphical representations of physical objects.
- Two-dimensional and solid modeling software is widely used in the engineering professions.
- Many engineering graduates enter the workplace by performing manual and computerized graphics manipulations.
- Orthographic projections.
- Types and priorities of lines.
- Auxiliary views.
- Sectional views.
- Isometric drawing.
- Dimensioning drawings.
- Absolute, relative, and polar coordinates.
- Drawing limits, snap, grid, ortho, zoom, osnap, layers.
- Fillet, chamfer, move, copy, mirror, offset, extend, array.
- Properties, polyline, stretch, rotate, blocks, external references.
- User Coordinate System (UCS), viewports, extrude, revolve.
- Solids commands: cylinder, sphere, box, union, subtract, intersection.
Competencies and skills:
The student will be able to:
- Communicate effectively using manual and computerized graphical techniques.
