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.
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.
Learners examine the occurrence of overflow and underflow conditions in a programmable logic controller. It is recommended that users view the learning object “Signed Binary Numbers” in advance of this object.
In this animated object, learners examine the factors that determine how well a capacitive proximity sensor can detect an object. Those factors include size, position, and the materials from which the target is made. A brief quiz completes the activity.
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.
