This course provides a basic understanding of the principles and technology of mechanical drawing and
parametric solid modeling as methods of documenting and communicating mechanical designs. The
concepts of geometric construction, and isometric (pictorial), orthographic, sectional, auxiliary, and
assembly views are covered. Dimensioning methods and types of fasteners are introduced. The student
gains basic proficiency in using parametric three-dimensional computer-aided design (SolidWorks and/or
Fusion 360) programs to build parts, assemblies, and detailed working drawings. Blueprint reading skills
and techniques are also reinforced as well as an introduction to Geometric Dimensioning and Tolerancing
(GD&T). The Engineering Design Process is used as a scaffolding for solving simple and complex design
challenges that focus on three-dimensional modeling as well as sketching and other graphic communication
techniques. CSWA and CSWP certification will be the goal for all participants.
