Advanced Drafting Design

Advanced Mechanical Design is a one-credit course for students who are interested in engineering and related mechanical drafting areas that provide more in-depth study of mechanical design.  Emphasis is placed on detailed parts drawings, bill of materials, and assembly drawings.  Students are introduced to basic geometric dimensioning and tolerancing (GD&T) applications.  Through intersections and development, students acquire basic sheet metal forming knowledge.  Using this knowledge, students lay out and form models of geometric figures.  Career readiness projects allow students opportunities to research industry standards and practices.  Leadership activities, cocurricular opportunities, and employability skills are emphasized in appropriate career and technical education organization affiliations.  The prerequisite for this course is Intermediate Drafting Design Technology.



Auxiliary Views


Students will:


     1.           Create drawings of inclined surfaces that incorporate auxiliary sections and secondary auxiliary views.



Working Drawings


     2.           Create a complete working drawing, including all dimensions, notes, and specifications.

·         Creating assembly drawings

·         Preparing bill of materials



Geometric Tolerancing


     3.           Demonstrate basic geometric dimensioning and tolerancing concepts, with references to American National Standards Institute (ANSI) dimensioning standards, in an advanced drafting design project.



Surface Developments and Intersections


     4.           Create three-dimensional geometric figures utilizing two-dimensional flat pattern surface development concepts.

·         Developing a layout of geometric figures

·         Cutting geometric patterns

·         Forming and folding geometric patterns



Introduction to Three-Dimensional Solid Model Design


     5.           Create a basic three-dimensional model of a mechanical part utilizing three-dimensional application software.



Career Readiness Project


     6.           Develop a career-related project based on research and design of current technology, including conducting Internet research, creating a working drawing, and using computer application software to organize and present the project.
