20L178Q Computer Aided Engineering Drawing

(4Credits, 64 Hours; Course Category: Specialty Basic Course; Specialty: Mechanical Engineering; Prerequisite: Computer Culture)
Mechanical engineering drawing is the language of mechanical design. After finishing this course, students will have a solid understanding of the concepts of section views, detail drawing, assembly drawing, many standard parts knowledge etc. and skills in using the tools of computer aided drawing and 3D modeling. The aim of the course is to train the capabilities of representing mechanical parts and reading detail and assembly blueprints, that is, to develop the skills in visualization, drawing techniques, and how to use GB standards and computer aided tools etc. Students will learn: fundamental theoretical principles in projection and visualization of parts etc. The student will be able to: explore space geometry solution methods via projection; practice the mechanical detail and assembly drawings; operate computer aided drawing and 3D modeling software.
The course mainly includes descriptive geometry foundation, mechanical drawing standard, computer aided drafting and solid modeling. The descriptive geometry uses projection theory to represent and solve space geometry problems. The mechanical drawing standard presents parts representation methods, and specifications etc. The computer-aided drafting and modeling are the modern advanced drawing techniques and tools for engineers to make engineering drawing effectively.
