Introduces the concepts of shape and size description of oblique surfaced objects, sectioning, processes used in the manufacturing environment, and geometric and traditional tolerancing. Requires knowledge of traditional and computer-based drafting techniques.
Goals, Topics, and Objectives
- Threaded fasteners and non-threaded fasteners.
- Processing notes and oblique surfaces.
- Drawing oblique surfaces.
- Dimensioning oblique surfaces.
- Castings, forgings, and cutting/viewing planes.
- Full sections and partial sections.
- Revolved, removed, aligned sections, and sectioning of ribs and webs.
- Tolerances and fits.
- Geometric dimensioning and tolerances and form tolerances.
- Profile, orientation, and runout tolerances.
- Location tolerances.
- Assembly drawings.
Assessment and Requirements
All students will be required to complete a comprehensive final examination that assesses the learning of all course objectives. This exam will consist of four drawings, at least one being a CAD drawing. This exam must be weighted in a manner so that the exam score is worth a minimum of fifteen percent of the final course grade. This exam is to be a common exam administered to all sections of TAGD 120.
The student will be required to bring the drafting equipment used in previous drafting courses. Modeling clay is also required.
Texts, handouts, and/or workbooks will be determined by the TAE Department.
