3.1 Drawings and information conveyed by drawings.

  • Computer-aided design models
  • Freehand sketching
  • Orthographic projection (first angle, third angle, section, assembly, general arrangement)
  • Exploded views
  • Block diagrams
  • Flowcharts
  • Circuit diagrams
  • Schematics (wiring diagrams, pneumatics, hydraulics)
  • Title block
  • Projection symbols, view (elevation, plan, end, section, auxiliary)
  • Types of line (outlines, hidden detail, centre line, projection, dimension, leader, construction)
  • Surface finish
  • Manufacturing detail
  • Standard features (screw threads, nuts, bolts, pins, repeated items, counterbore, countersink, centre mark)
  • Abbreviations (across flats, centre lines, diameter, drawing, material, square, chamfer, countersunk, hexagon head, radius, thread, undercut, pitch circle diameter)

3.2 Dimensions and tolerances on engineering drawings.

  • Dimensions (linear, diameter, radius, angular)
