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.
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.
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.
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 interactive object, learners examine standard and metric thread specifications used in engineering drawings. In a brief quiz, they identify various internal and external thread representations.
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.
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.
