**Basics of Mechanical Drawing and Dimensioning**ChE 126 Borrowed mostly from the Fundamentals of Engineering Honors program at Ohio State**How Would You Describe This?**• Describe this using only words • How effective is it?**Three Basic Types of Technical Drawings**• Freehand sketches • Instrument drawings • Computer drawings and models**Introduction to Projections**• Present 3-D objects with 2-D media • Two Basic Categories OrthographicPictorial**Hidden Lines – represent features that cannot be seen in**the current view • Centerlines – represent symmetry and mark the center of circles, the axes of cylinders, and the axes of symmetrical parts, such as bolts Hidden and Center Lines in Orthographic Projections • Object Lines – represent visible features for an object**For Example:**1. Visible 2. Hidden 3. Center**Use very light lines for drawing in the construction lines**Step 1 – Lightly Block Three Views**Step 2 – Lightly Block Major Features**• Holes • Arcs • Cutouts Use very light lines for drawing in the construction lines**Step 3 – Add Final Lines**Use very light lines for drawing in the construction lines**Dimensioning**• Orthographic and isometric views define the shape and general features of the object • Dimensioning adds information that specifies • Size of the object • Location of features (e.g. holes) • Characteristics of features (e.g. depth and diameter of hole) • Dimensions also communicate the tolerance (or accuracy) required**Units of Measure**Angle Dimensions • Length • English: Inches, unless otherwise stated • Up to 72" • Feet and inches over 72" • SI: millimeter, mm • Angle • degrees, minutes, seconds**Dimensioning Basic Shapes – Assumptions**• Perpendicularity • Symmetry**Dimensioning Basic Shapes**• Rectangular Prism**ALWAYS give DIAMETER " " for full circles (360 degrees)**and RADIUS "R" for arcs (less than 360 degrees) Dimensioning Shows: A) Size B) Location and Orientation**General Guidelines: Clarity is the Goal**• Dimension Outside of View Avoid Good Practice**General Dimensioning Guidelines**• Start with basic outside dimensions of the object • Height • Width • Depth • Add dimension for location and size of removed features • Add general and specific notes – such as tolerances**Practice Problem**How many Dimensions are needed?**Practice Problem**How many Dimensions are needed?
