Intermediate Drafting Design

Intermediate Drafting Design is a one-credit course designed to further the development of students’ knowledge regarding the use of drafting design practices and procedures.  Students expand their ability to illustrate more complex objects using the Computer-Aided Drafting (CAD) system.  Topics include sectioning, auxiliary views, threads and fasteners, pictorials, and the continuation of conventional dimensioning practices.  Upon successful completion of the course students are able to develop section views, primary auxiliary views, thread representations and pictorial views, and apply dimensions properly on a drawing.  Leadership activities, cocurricular opportunities, and employability skills are emphasized in appropriate career and technical education organization affiliations.  The prerequisite for this course is Introduction to Drafting Design.



Section Views


Students will:


     1.           Demonstrate the proper use of sectional view concepts to create a full section, half section, broken-out section, offset section, revolved section, and a removed section.

·         Utilizing cutting planes

·         Applying section lining



Auxiliary Views


     2.           Create drawings of inclined surfaces.

·         Constructing primary auxiliary views



Threads and Fasteners


     3.           Create drawings illustrating detailed, schematic, and simplified thread representations.

·         Identifying common thread terms



Pictorial Views


     4.           Utilize pictorial concepts to produce an isometric drawing.

·         Identifying oblique, trimetric, diametric views





     5.           Apply dimensions, notes, and other relative information to a drafting design project.

Examples:  dimensions—angular, linear, tolerances


·         Utilizing American National Standards Institute (ANSI) dimensioning standards

·         Identifying dimensioning symbols and tolerances
