Module 1 Contents
Introduction to Engineering Graphics: Drawing instruments; BIS code of practice for general engineering drawing; Construction of Conic sections by eccentricity method; Construction of Cycloids, Involutes, Spirals and Helix.
Module 2 Contents
Orthographic projections of points and lines:-Projections of points in different quadrants; Projections of straight lines inclined to one or both of the reference planes; True length and inclination of lines with reference planes; Traces of lines.
Module 3 ContentsOrthographic projections of solids:-Projections of simple solids* in simple positions, axis inclined to one of the reference planes and axis inclined to both the reference planes-use change of position method OR auxiliary projection method.
Module 4 ContentsSections of solids:-Sections of simple solids* in simple vertical positions with section plane perpendicular/inclined to one of the reference planes – True shapes of sections.
Module 5 Contents
Development of surfaces of simple solids and cut regular solids; Intersection of surfaces:-Intersection of prism in prism & cylinder in cylinder- axis bisecting at right angles only.
Module 6 Contents
Isometric Projections:-Isometric projections and views of simple and truncated simple solids, sphere, hemisphere and their combinations in simple position. Conversion of Pictorial views to Orthographic views by free hand sketching.
Introduction to Computer Aided Drafting - Preparation of engineering drawings by using any software capable of drafting and modeling. (For internal work assessment only, not for University Examination)
