How to Read a Caliper
By Barbara Anderegg
In this interactive object, learners review how to read a caliper. They then test their skills with eight practice questions.
Basic Types of Lines Used in Engineering Drawings
By Kelly Curran, Glenn Sokolowski
In this highly interactive object, learners associate basic line types and terms with engineering drawing geometry. A quiz completes the activity.
Basic Symbols Used in Engineering Drawings
Learners examine the drawing symbols used for counterbore, countersink, spotface, radius, diameter, and depth. In the quiz that completes the activity, they associate these symbols with machining applications.
Orthographic Projection #1
By Glenn Sokolowski
In this interactive and animated object, learners examine orthographic projection and the Glass Box Theory. Front, side, and top view development is demonstrated with pictorial views of each object to help develop 2D to 3D visualization skills.
Reading a Micrometer
By Sue Silverstein
In this learning activity you'll practice reading a micrometer.
Basic Types of Dimensioning Used in Engineering Drawings
Learners examine the basic types of dimensioning including unidirectional and aligned systems, and linear, aligned, angled, arrowless, chain, datum, chart, tabular, radius, diameter, typical, and reference dimensions.
Brain Exercise: Visualization #1
In this interactive object, learners practice their 3D visualization skills by identifying the correct isometric view of an object. Front, side, and top orthographic views are shown.
Print Reading: An Alphabet of Lines in Print Reading
By Kelly Curran
In this animated activity, learners read about the types of lines found on blueprints. A quiz completes the activity.
The Dial Caliper
Learners review guidelines for the proper use of a dial caliper. Illustrations appear throughout the learning object.
Brain Exercise: Visualization #2
In this interactive object, learners practice their 3D visualization skills by identifying the correct isometric view of an object.
Basic Elements of Dimensions Used in Engineering Drawings
In this interactive object, students explore the basic elements and common terms associated with dimensions and leaders. A quiz completes the activity.
Brain Exercise: Visualization #3
Learners develop 3D visualization skills by examining front, side, and top orthographic views of objects. Using this information, students select the corresponding isometric view of each object.
In this interactive object, learners examine sectional views used in engineering drawings. The sections shown are full, half, offset, aligned, revolved, and broken-out. Learners match drawings of sectional views with the names of the views.
In this learning activity you'll examine how a sine bar is used to measure angles.
Analyze a Part Drawing
In this interactive object, learners answer 25 questions regarding part or assembly drawings. The basic areas of blueprint reading are covered.
Learners examine pictorial drawings used in engineering including sectioned and exploded drawings. A sketching quiz is provided to help the learner create simple pictorial sketches by using orthographic views and an isometric template.
GD&T: Geometric Characteristic Symbols
In this interactive object, learners test their knowledge of 14 geometric tolerance control symbols.
Procedure for Setting the Tool Length Offsets on a Vertical CNC Machining Center with a Fanuc O-M Control
By Les Rhines
Students view how the tool length offsets are set on the CNC Machine. They read a description of a method that uses a 2-inch gage block as a height reference.
Title Block Tolerances
Learners examine the use of the tolerances displayed in a title block by calculating the minimum and maximum allowable size of a fabricated part. In a brief quiz, students determine whether a part is usable or should be scrapped.
Reading Vernier Height Gage Quiz
Students take a 13-question quiz to practice reading 25- and 50-division Vernier height gages.
Determining Punch & Dies for Press Brake Forming
By Dave Hoffman
Introduction to selecting the proper punch and die for air bending or bottoming when forming on a press brake. Includes charts and methods for selection.
Metric Micrometer Measurements Review

Vernier Measurements Review
In this learning activity you'll follow 11 steps to take measurements using a Vernier caliper.
Gage Block Combinations Review
By Kelly Curran, Janet Braun
In this learning activity you'll test your ability to select the proper gage blocks when making a stack.
Indirect Measurement Instruments
The learner will define indirect measurement, identify common indirect measuring tools, and select the proper measuring tool for the situation.
