Introduction to Engineering Graphics and Drafting – PART 1 & 2
July 3, 2017 @ 10:00 am - July 4, 2017 @ 12:00 pm$45
Develop your technical drawing skills - learn to understand and draw orthographic projections (i.e. top, front and side views), isometric, oblique drawings and cut views. You'll be using pencil and paper - the old fashioned way - as a stepping stone on your way to applying computer aided drawing (CAD) techniques.
This class is split into two parts, tickets need to be purchased for each part.
Why learn this course?
This course is a valuable precursor for learning CAD (Computer Aided Drawing), which in-turn is required for 3D printing your own creations. Want to use the 3D printer? This course is your first step.
In-Depth Course Plan -
Presentation and examples: Cartesian coordinate systems and plotting
Orthographic Projects and cut views
Dimensioning (if requested)
Isometric and Oblique views
Cut views in isometric and oblique projections
Final Drawing Piece - a house, or your desired object/item
What is provided: All materials and tools are provided.
Desired / prerequisite skills: Some basic mathematics skills desirable, but not required.
Workshop presenter:Prof. Matthew Smith (School of Mechanical Engineering, UQ, NCKU)
