Demonstrate the use of engineering design graphics and descriptive geometry.

Definition

Demonstration should include
  • defining engineering design graphics and descriptive geometry
  • finding measurements in 3D spatial problems (e.g., length of a line, distance between lines, distance from a point to a plane, angle between intersecting planes, resultant vector force).

Process/Skill Questions

  • Why is it important to use standard graphic techniques?
  • What is the purpose of verifying a solution to a design problem?
  • How can a solution be verified, using engineering design graphics?
