Drafting I
Course Objective:
To familiarize with the use of drafting instrument and introduce drawings by the exercises through the concepts and principles of orthographic and parallel projection to develop drafting skill.
 Preliminary drawing skill (6 hours)
 Introduction of drawing and its classification: Artistic drawing, engineering drawing, Geometrical drawing: a) Plane geometrical drawing, b) Solid geometrical drawing, Architectural, Civil, Computer, Electrical, Electronics and Mechanical drawings.
 Drafting equipments and their use, importance of accuracy, drawing sheet format and layout of drawing sheet etc.
 Skill development practice in drafting: Different types of line, line weights etc.; convention for lines, materials and features, texture of different materials.
 Lettering and its types: Proportional base, style base & stroke and direction base.
 Scale and dimensioning: Its types and systems.
 Reproduction of geometrical and building drawings at different scales.
 Geometrical drawings: Point, line bisection, perpendicular line, parallel line, trisection of line, bisection of angle, trisection of angle etc.
 Inscribing and describing of circle about a triangle, square and polygon etc.
 Construction of square, different types of polygons, external and internal tangents, arc tangents, special curves, conical sections and other geometrical constructions.
 Tracing in pencil & ink medium.
 Theory of Projection (1 hour)
 Introduction
 Types of projection:
a) Orthographic projection
b) Pictorial projection.
 Pictorial projection:
a) Axonometric b) Oblique c) Perspective.
 Orthographic Projection (2D drawing) (3 hours)
 Introduction
 System of three planes
 Principles of orthographic projection
 Projection of point in different planes
 Projection of lines of different position in relation to the projection planes
 Projection of rectangular surfaces of different position in relation to the projection planes
 Projection of solids (cube, hexagonal prism, cylinder, cone, pentagonal pyramid and sphere) in different projection planes
 Projection of point and lines on the surface of solid figures
 Projection of three dimensional objects in different planes (conversion of isometric views into orthographic projection)
 Pictorial Projection (3D drawing) (2 hours)
 Isometric Projection: Isometric scale, isometric axes, isometric lines, nonisometric lines, isometric planes
 Conversion of orthographic views into isometric projection and drawing
