The first part covers 2D drawing with dimensioning. These drawings are of mechanical-type projects using both imperial and metric units. Topics Include: Creation of 2D and 3D Geometry Use of Reference Files Orthographic Projection Creation and Modification of 3D Solids Creation of 2D Views from 3D Solids Creating Dimension Styles Printing 2D and 3D Drawings Creation of Assemblies Geometric Dimensioning and Tolerancing (GD&T) Symbols Tolerance Dimensioning The student will also be introduced to the use of Welding Symbols and the process of creating Blocks (Symbols) for use within a Weldment project. Once the student completes the 2D versions of the projects, they will be instructed in the use of 3D tools and techniques. The student will draw the projects in a 3D format. Instruction in the conversion of a 3D solid to a set of 2D orthographic views is also covered. There is also a companion website for the book that is maintained by the author. Purchasers of the book will be able to download support files and view tutorial videos for each of the projects presented in the book.
