Introduction to mechanical engineering drawing. General regulations – International standardization (Paper sizes. Drawing scales. Types of lines and their use). Sectional and auxiliary views. Dimensioning of the engineering drawings. Tolerances and fits. Descriptive geometry elements (Intersections and developments). Screws. Computer aided design/drafting (CAD) and applications. Techniques for 3D CAD modeling of parts and extraction of the relevant 2D design drawings. Practice on 3D CAD software.
The course is complemented with three compulsory exercises of free hand sketching and conventional drawing of real machine components as well as machine tool workshop practice. The final written exam consists of two parts. The first one is pertinent to the conventional drawing and the second one to the design using modern 3D-CAD software.
MTL is responsible for delivering the machine tool workshop related activities as follows:
1. Make project (different every year)
2. Conventional turning
