This course has two major areas of content. First, it is designed to develop students’ ability to interpret needed information, symbols, abbreviations, and conventions contained on industrial blueprints. An overview of reading the blueprint as well as its views, dimensions, tolerances and finishing marks will be stressed. Assembly and detailed drawings will be examined on an advanced level. Geometric dimensions, tolerances, and symbols will also be covered. The second part of the course will be an emphasis on hand drafting. The course offers the opportunity to examine the use of graphics standards and various scales used in technical drawings and to visualize and interpret plan views, sections, and details in prints generated manually. 2 lecture hours, 2 laboratory hours.
