Main purpose

The course purpose is to provide methods and tools within the fields of technical drawing and illustration of machine components according to standards.
 

Knowledge

The student will acquire knowledge of the following:
- Sketching of isometric views and doing simple developments
- Using 3d CAD in technical drawing
- Illustrating using the first quadrant method (European)
- Dimensioning after known standards (DS/ISO 128, 129)
- Using tolerances in relation to assemblies
- Combine surface roughness with production methods
- Weldment sections in relation to weld symbols
- The use of geometrical tolerancing when design machine components
- Structured drawing documentation (layout, assemblies, detail drawings and parts lists)

Skills

The student will acquire skills in:
- Presenting technical documentation in 2D and 3D
- Creating machine drawings according to DS/ISO 128/129 and using general tolerancing and fit tolerances
- Define an describe machine components making sketches, drawings, assembly drawings and parts lists.
- Identify and using standard parts in machine design

Competences

After completing the course, the student will be able to:
- Present and sketch technical ideas
- Construct a product from described criteria’s
- Argue technical solutions in a dialog with suppliers
- Produce technical documentation for production
- Understand production preparation of raw materials and have a dialog about production methods
