This course is designed for anyone from a manufacturing setting who must interpret engineering specifications found on mechanical drawings. Participants are introduced to common ANSI drafting principles used to communicate information to the interpreter, with a strong focus on the development of visualization skills needed to obtain information from various orthographic projection views. Topics include: Parts of a print, line conventions, orthographic projection, linear and angular dimensioning systems, coordinate tolerancing systems, detail and assembly prints, sectional and detailed views, machined details and elements, introduction to geometric tolerances, pictorial drawings, welding and precision sheet metal prints, and first angle projection. Participants are encouraged to bring prints from their work place for use in the classroom. A continuation of Blueprint Reading I.
