This course covers the principles involved in visually communicating engineering designs. Topics include technical sketching, engineering graphics and design; development of visualization skills by using computer aided drafting (CAD) software in conjunction with orthographic projection problems; emphasis on computer aided design; mechanical dimensioning and tolerancing practices and graphical analytical methods of solutions to three-dimensional problems. Assignments develop sketching and 2-D and 3-D CAD skills. The use of CAD software is an integral part of this course.
After successful completion of this course, students will be able to:
- Outcome 1: Summarize the graphic design process.
- Outcome 2: Design and produce preliminary sketches of solutions to spatial problems using technical graphics principles.
- Outcome 3: Synthesize various methods of graphical communication by implementing 3D visualization skills, 3D CAD models and CAD drawings to present the solutions to spatial problems.
- Outcome 4: Utilize CAD software to carry out solutions for planar and spatial vector problems by planning, designing, and generating solid, wire-frame and extruded 3D models.
- Outcome 5: Integrate communication skills with group dynamics in a team to create solutions for spatial problems
