Print Reading and Design
A course designed for a beginning course in the fundamentals of industrial print reading. This course provides the basics of print reading with an emphasis on working with industrial prints. Throughout the course, Solid Works is introduced to acquaint the student with the basic fundamentals of how drawings and designs are made and the different types of drawings and designs used in industry. The student will construct multi-view drawings to solve problems related to points, lines, planes, intersections, and auxiliary surfaces of three dimensional objects. Freehand sketches will be done on paper and drawings will be done using Solid Works cad software on a computer. In the lab portion of the course students will be able to practice and demonstrate acquired skills using the same equipment and tools found in the industry.
