Develop your technical drawing skills - learn to understand and draw orthographic projections (i.e. top, front and side views), isometric, oblique drawings and cut views. You'll be using pencil and paper - the old fashioned way - as a stepping stone on your way to applying computer aided drawing (CAD) techniques.
This class is split into two parts, tickets need to be purchased for each part.
Why learn this course?
This course is a valuable precursor for learning CAD (Computer Aided Drawing), which in-turn is required for 3D printing your own creations. Want to use the 3D printer? This course is your first step.
In-Depth Course Plan -
Presentation and examples: Cartesian coordinate systems and plotting
Orthographic Projects and cut views
Dimensioning (if requested)
Isometric and Oblique views
Cut views in isometric and oblique projections
Final Drawing Piece - a house, or your desired object/item
What is provided: All materials and tools are provided.
Desired / prerequisite skills: Some basic mathematics skills desirable, but not required.
Workshop presenter:Prof. Matthew Smith (School of Mechanical Engineering, UQ, NCKU)
- Develop your technical drawing skills
- learn to understand orthographic projections (i.e. top, front and side views), isometric, oblique drawings and cut views
- draw orthographic projections (i.e. top, front and side views), isometric, oblique drawings and cut views
- You get to take home your collection of orthographic, isometric and oblique drawings. If you desire, your workshop presenter can create the 3D drawing of your final drawing piece for 3D printing which you can then take home.
- You don't need to bring anything, however you must wear enclosed footwear.
Must wear enclosed shoes
Teens and adults. Participants under 18 must be accompanied by an adult. We have a lounge area and coffee machine for non-participants to use.
