OUTCOMES AND OBJECTIVES
Outcome 1: Upon completion of this course, the learner will be able to describe the communication tools used in orthographic mechanical drafting.

Objectives:

  1. Using the material presented on definitions and terms, define and apply the terms to orthographic mechanical drafting.
  2. Using the material presented on communication tools, apply correct coding of lines to communicate on orthographic mechanical drafting.
  3. Using the material presented on size description, dimension orthographic mechanical drawings.

Outcome 2: Upon completion of this course, the learner will be able to provide shape description.

Objectives:

  1. Using the material presented on shape description, draw free hand sketching of orthographic geometric objects.
  2. Using the material presented on shape description, draw shapes of normal, slant, receding and inclined surfaces on orthographic mechanical drawings.
  3. Using the material presented on shape description, draw shapes of cylinders and complex shapes on orthographic mechanical drawings.

Outcome 3: Upon completion of this course, the learner will be able to provide size description.

Objectives:

  1. Using the material presented on size description, apply size description to normal surfaces with English and Metric units on orthographic mechanical drawings.
  2. Using the material presented on size description, apply size description to incline, slant, receding and oblique surfaces with English and Metric units on orthographic mechanical drawings.
  3. Using the material presented on size description, apply size description with precision dimensions, classes of fits and allowances on orthographic mechanical drawings.
