Module Description: This module aims to give the student a comprehensive introduction to the industry standards used in Engineering Drawing. The student will be expected to produce a portfolio of orthographic working drawings. The student will also be introduced to the selection of components for mechanical systems.
Learning Outcomes
On successful completion of this module the learner will be able to:
LO1 Use industry specific CAD software and international drawing standards.
LO2 Produce a portfolio of engineering drawings.
LO3 Manage your portfolio within the institute's file management system.
LO4 Develop 3D parametric models and produce 2D engineering drawings from these models.
LO5 Disassemble, assemble, and design a mechanical system.

Module Content & Assessment

Indicative Content
International Drawing Standards
Identify international drawing standards, to include ISO Standards, BS8888:2013, drawing conventions, line types, line weights.
File Management
Utilise the institutes's file management system to manage portfolios and generate sub-folders. Naming convention for files. Retrieval of backup drawings.
Introductory 2-D Drawings
Generate 2D drawings using draw, modify, format, zoom, layer control, help, etc.
Templates and Plotting
Generate and utilise drawing templates for A2, A3, and A4 sized sheets. Use of paper space and plotting to scale.
Orthographic Projection
Drawing in first and third angle projections. Sectional views. Dimensioning.
3D parametric modelling
Drawing of basic solid models involving Sketching a Profile, setting Dimensions & Constraints and Basic Features (e.g.: Extrude, Revolve, Holes, Chamfer, Round; duplicating Features;Reorder Features)and working drawing creation.
Machine Component Design
Selection and use of rolling bearings, belt drives,keys and keyways. Assembly, disassembly and running of maintenance test rigs.
Design Project
Research and select suitable mechanical components to complete the design of a mechanical system.
