MECH 2543 - Advanced CAD Applications, 3 Credits

Prerequisite(s): MECH 1603 with D or better

Level: Lower

Advanced CAD is a continuation of the basic drafting standards and techniques facilitated through the course pre-requisite, MECH 1603. Delving into other mechanical drafting disciplines, this course will help students develop additional skill sets required in a variety of other mechanical fields. This course will cover, but not be limited to, machine design, weldments, structural steel, process piping, and pressure vessels. The major emphasis of this course will be the creation of working industrial drawings for fabrication and or successful integration into a mechanical assembly. The following standards will be used: 1, ASME Sec. VIII, Div. 2, Pressure Vessel Code, ASME Y14.5M-Geometric Dimensioning & Tolerancing, ASME B31: Standards of Pressure Piping, ANSI B4.1: Limits and Fits, AISC: Standard Structural Steel Construction.
