Course Code: PLBT 112

Academic Year: 2020-2021

This course introduces students to the fundamental concepts and methods of drafting and includes orthographic projection, auxiliary views, dimensioning, intersections, surface developments and pictorial drawing. No past drafting background is assumed, although the content is equally suited to learners who require an in-depth review of high school drafting. Emphasis within the course is placed on the development of professional drafting skills. During the course, students are participants in an individually directed learning process that involves the use of drawing tools and equipment. Once the students have the basic fundamental drawing skills, they create six module three view orthographic projection drawings to scale. From isometric drain plan drawings, they show all relative piping and locations of elbows, tees, unions, tanks and drains.
