3 credits (PREREQUISITE: BMM 101 or DEPARTMENTAL PERMISSION)

This course introduces the basic principles of engineering drawings. It addresses line types, orthographic projection, and isometric views that are used in industry standards. The six basic views of parts are designed to acquaint the student with a pictorial vision of a 3D part in a flat pattern view. Areas of study include: line types, orthographic projection, isometric views, fundamental tools of title block information, drawing standards, general and special notes such as quality assurance data, non-destructive testing, symbology, geometric dimensioning and tolerancing parameters, blueprint drawing abbreviations, linear units of measurement, rules of dimensioning, inclined surfaces, measurement of angles, holes and bolt hole patterns, drawings to scale, blueprint revisions and notes. Upon completion, students should be able to interpret basic prints and visualize the features of a part or system. (F, Sp, Su)
