ENG06081 2019 Engineering Graphics & Computer Aided Design
This module provides students with a broad introduction to 2-dimensional and 3-dimensional computer aided drafting, design and modelling. The overall aim of this module is to introduce students to the engineering drafting and design process and to provide them with the basic techniques required to produce models and drawings of individual engineering parts using a 3D CAD system. Students will also learn to read and interpret engineering drawings and communicate through technical documentation.
On completion of this module the learner will/should be able to;
Read and interpret 2D and 3D drawings, and communicate through drawing documents.
Produce orthographic and multiview 2D drawings from 3D models.
Demonstrate an understanding of the design process.
Apply engineering graphics standards and produce drawings which conform to national and/or international standards.
Produce freehand engineering sketches.
Use a 3D CAD modelling system to efficiently produce solid models and drawings of individual component parts and assemblies.
Teaching and Learning Strategies
This module will be delivered in a computer laboratory and, along with the necessary theory and freehand sketching, will involve the use of 2D and 3D CAD systems to product models and drawings.
The CAD element will be divided equally between a Building Information Modelling system and a Mechanical Solid Modelling system, with each aspect being timetabled for three hours per week.
Module Assessment Strategies
Assessment will involve the assessment of all assignments undertaken in class, design project activity completed independently and end of semester assessment tests.
The assessment strategy will be coordinated at the start of the academic year to plan the weekly delivery, assessment schedule and submission deadlines.
The continuous assessment will be based on individual project work and will include sketches, drawings and 3D models; these will be assessed on an ongoing basis to provide both formative and summative assessment to the learner.
Repeat submission of continuous assessment assignments and end of semester assessment test.
Theory of first and third angle orthographic projection, sectional, auxiliary and detail views.
Engineering drawing standards, ISO standards and conventional representations, sheet sizes and layout, dimensioning of drawings and symbolic representation.
Freehand sketching in orthographic and pictorial projection (2D & 3D).
Introduction to the design process, stages in the design process and typical design activities and strategies.
Isometric view, conversion of isometric to orthographic and orthographic to isometric.
Introduction to the CAD software interface and navigation system.
Create and clearly define basic drawings using a 2D CAD system.
Overview of available 3D modelling software and applications.
Use the basic commands to create 3D geometry.
Terminology used to describe features of engineering components.
Use of a 3D mechanical modelling system and a BIM system to create solid models of individual parts and assemblies and to produce detail working drawings for both systems.
Reading and interpreting drawings to determine shape, size and method of construction or manufacture.

The primary goal of AutoCAD 2018 Tutorial First Level 2D Fundamentals is to introduce the aspects of Computer Aided Design and Drafting (CADD). This text is intended to be used as a training guide for students and professionals. This text covers AutoCAD 2018 and the lessons proceed in a pedagogical fashion to guide you from constructing basic shapes to making multiview drawings. This textbook contains a series of eleven tutorial style lessons designed to introduce beginning CAD users to AutoCAD 2018. It takes a hands-on, exercise-intensive approach to all the important 2D CAD techniques and concepts. This text is also helpful to AutoCAD users upgrading from a previous release of the software. The new improvements and key enhancements of the software are incorporated into the lessons. The 2D-CAD techniques and concepts discussed in this text are also designed to serve as the foundation to the more advanced parametric feature-based CAD packages such as Autodesk Inventor. The basic premise of this book is that the more designs you create using AutoCAD 2018, the better you learn the software. With this in mind, each lesson introduces a new set of commands and concepts, building on previous lessons. This book is intended to help readers establish a good basis for exploring and growing in the exciting field of Computer Aided Engineering.
