## Description:

Introduces methods of communicating technical information in engineering design and research. Topics include freehand sketching, lettering, scales, drawing layout, orthographic projection, pictorials, auxiliary views, section views, dimensioning, descriptive geometry, thread and fastener specifications, and tolerances. Includes an introduction to computer-aided drafting. Prerequisite: MATH 098 or 099.

## Outcomes:

After completing this class, students should be able to:

• Mechanical Drafting

• Draw visible, hidden, centerline, and cutting plane line types with proper darkness and width.
• Slide triangles to construct parallel and perpendicular lines.
• Arrange triangles to divide 360 degrees by 15 degree increments.
• Geometric Constructions.
• Bisect a line segment.
• Divide a line into any arbitrary number of equal units.
• Bisect an angle.
• Inscribe or circumscribe a triangle, square, pentagon, hexagon, or an octagon about a circle.
• Construct an arc that is tangent between two lines, a line and an arc, or two arcs.
• Use and Architectâ€™s, Engineerâ€™s, or Metric scale to measure or layout a distance.
• Determine the most appropriate scale given an available drawing area and an object size.
• Views.
• Identify and rectify missing lines in a set of orthographic views.
• Draw a set of orthographic views given an isometric pictorial.
• Construct an ellipse inside a rhombus.
• Draw an isometric and oblique pictorial given a set of orthographic views.
• Determine an auxiliary view given a set of orthographic views.
• Properly draw a section view for a given cutting plane through an object.
• Determine the best view in which to place a dimension of an object feature.
