MECH 1603 - Graphics/CAD, 3 Credits

Level: Lower

Graphics/CAD involves the visualization, sketching, and geometric construction of mechanical components. Students will layout and create 2D working industrial drawings that adhere to industry standards. This course will illustrate CAD drawing construction techniques that implement graphical communication through the use of the alphabet of lines, orthographic projection, section views, auxiliary views and the creation of assembly and detail mechanical components. This course will also use the ASME Standard Y14.5M-1994 for Geometric Dimensioning & Tolerancing to facilitate the communication of geometry requirements for associated features on detail components and assemblies.
