Preparation of mechanical design layouts, details and assembly drawings, using mechanisms such as linkages, pneumatics, hydraulics, gear trains, belt and chain drives and control systems. Application of geometric dimensioning and tolerances to appropriate detail drawings. This is a five (5) week course.
The application of basic methods, symbols and conventions to prepare working drawings for the construction of residential buildings. This course is designed to permit the drafting student to develop, design and create drawings typical to the residential industry. These drawings will allow the student to demonstrate their understanding and design capabilities applied to residential structures. Each student will perform appropriate calculations and prepare all drawings applicable to modern residential construction.
Develop and complete industrial weldment drawings using various welding processes and types of joints used to draw weldment assemblies using related symbols, appropriate materials and dimensioning practices. This will include raw stock materials, piping and structural members. Converting castings to fabrication parts will also be addressed. Successful completion of this course requires a grade of 70% or better on a comprehensive II exam.
Develop and complete industrial assembly drawings and detail drawings for assemblies, using appropriate dimensioning and ANSI tolerances, complete bill of materials including threads and fastener information and identification. Course will involve, also, aspects of tolerance stack up their calculations. The family of drawings and assembly.
Practical geometry and trigonometry as a continuation of Technical Calculations I. The scope of this course includes solutions of geometric shapes and solids, right and oblique transfers using industrially related situations. Successful completion of this course requires a grade of "C" or better.
This course will address advanced design techniques and practices that are typical in the design industry. Students will be challenged with design concepts and problem solving in order to accomplish a particular task. An excellent understanding of gearing kinematics and cams will be realized through practical application. Students will be confronted by design problems that emulate industrial applications.
In this course the student will model, using a current version of Unigraphics, industrial projects giving careful consideration to their interrelated features. The student will use both sketches and Boolean operations to complete their models. The importance of parametric controls within and between part files will be stressed.
Mathematics review, basic algebra, industrial applications applying the decimal and metric systems, use of reference books and electronic calculators. Successful completion of this course requires a grade of "C" or better.
