Engineering Drawing is the most effective and powerful mode of communicating engineering content for engineers in a consistent and uniform manner. With this in view, this course lays emphasis on introducing real life application of Engineering Drawing beyond the create and Read Objectives of such course, which we undertake as beginners.

This course is not a digitized version of course curriculum, but emphasis is more on select difficult concepts in a visualized environment with industry insights applications use cases. The format of the course is designed to encourage self paced learning using 3D visualized and simulated environment with immersive experience.

The course is logically structured in two distinct parts, the part A primarily is to deal with enhanced understanding of some difficult concepts through immersive visualization format of learning along with real life use cases, whilst Part B is more focused towards application and extension of Engineering Drawing in real life situations in different industries.

Who this course is for:
  • The design of course is intended for both students who are learning Engineering Drawing as well for those who have undergone the course, however intend to extend their learning to application of the knowledge as relevant to real world in Industries.
  • First Year engineering all streams. Second Year/Third Year/Final Year - Mechanical, Manufacturing,Automobile,Production engineering related streams
  • First Year diploma all streams. Second Year/Third year - Mechanical, Manufacturing,Automobile,Production engineering related streams
  • Any graduate who is looking to enhance his knowledge of Engineering Drawing as applicable to discrete manuafcturing or seeking employment in discrete manuafcturing.

+ Part A - Engineering Drawing
1 lecture 07:23

An engineering drawing, a type of technical drawing, is used to fully and clearly define requirements for engineered items. Engineering drawing (the activity) produces engineering drawings (the documents). More than merely the drawing of pictures, it is also a graphical language that communicates ideas and information from one mind to another.

Preview 07:23
+ Part A - Orthographic Views
4 lectures 08:56

Graphical projection is a protocol, used in technical drawing, by which an image of a 3 Dimensional object is projected onto a 2 Dimensional planar surface without the aid of numerical calculation.

Preview 02:45

It is used for easy understanding of the drawing and visualizing the object for the persons without technical knowledge. These views reveal the shape of an object, approximately, when an observer, views the object.

Projection Views

Orthographic projection is a way of representing a 3D object in two dimensions. Here the view direction is orthogonal to the projection plane, resulting in each plane of the scene appearing in affine transformation on viewing surface.

Orthographic Views

Different styles of Orthographic Projection. It is further subdivided into three groups: isometric, dimetric and trimetric projection, depending on the exact angle at which the view deviates from the orthogonal.

Different styles
+ Part A - Section Of Solids
3 lectures 08:39

Understand concept of sectional view.

Preview 03:01

A primary reason for creating a section view is the elimination of hidden lines, so that a drawing can be more easily understood or visualized. Sectioned technical illustrations are used to improve clarity and reveal interior features of complicated parts.

Need for Section Views

Learn different types of section views.

Types with Examples
+ Part A - Development of Lateral Surfaces
3 lectures 07:46

It is a graphical method of obtaining the area of the surfaces of a solid.

Preview 01:47

There are various types of surface development techniques based on the geometry of solids.

Classification of Developments

Understand how industry uses the concepts of development of lateral surfaces.

Importance and Applications

So far we have covered concepts of Engineering Drawing and it's related application along with industry specific examples.

Now , test your knowledge on Part A of this course. If required, we suggest you to revise specific topics at your own pace.

Part A - Assessment
12 questions
+ Part B - Drawing Standards and Best Practices
3 lectures 23:01

More than merely the drawing of pictures, Engineering Drawing is also a graphical language that communicates ideas and information from one mind to another. Drawing standards help in unambiguous communication and it also aids with internationalization

Drawing Standards

While engineering drawings are a great way to communicate design intent, it’s imperative for engineers to convey only critical requirements. This ultimately translates into lower product manufacturing cost. Drawing Best Practices helps understand this criticality.

Drawing Best Practices

Drawings are interpreted based on knowledge and skill level of end user hence it is extremely important to realize importance of industry specific standardization to minimize communication gaps.

Interpretation Of Drawings
+ Part B - Types Of Drawings
6 lectures 15:43

Part drawings are mostly applicable for engineered parts and uniqueness of an engineered part is defined by its fit, form, feature and intended function to perform.

Preview 05:43

An assembly drawing is a drawing of complete machine or system with all of its components located and identified. The purpose of an assembly drawing is to show how the individual parts fit together.

Assembly Drawings

Vendor drawing will vary based on type of suppliers either providing raw material, semi-finished part or finished part to the original equipment manufacturer.

Vendor Drawings

An electrical or Electronic drawing is a simple visual representation of the physical connections and physical layout of an electrical system or circuit.

Electrical / Electronics Drawings

An installation drawing provides information for properly positioning and installing items relative to their supporting structure and adjacent items, as applicable.

Installation Drawings

Schematic diagram is a simplified drawing that uses symbols and lines to convey important information.

Schematic Drawings
+ Part B - Drawing Management
2 lectures 11:26

A drawing goes through multiple changes while being created or even after it get released to other department. Version and Revision plays a critical role in managing and tracking these changes.

Version Vs Revision

Engineering drawings and associated parts are identified by their specific numbers. The correlation between Drawing Number and Part Number needs to be understood clearly. Any ambiguity has a cost and impact in various ways.

Drawing Number vs. Part Number
+ Part B - Derivatives Of Engineering Drawing
2 lectures 08:28

Bill of material is a critical derivative of Engineering drawing and the back bone of manufacturing. It is important to understand how a bill of material is created out of Engineering Drawing.

Engineering Drawing and Bill of Materials

Based on the Engineering Drawing, Manufacturing department creates various drawings such as raw part drawings, stage drawings, Part holding fixture drawings etc which is used for further realization of physical parts.

Manufacturing Drawings vs. Engineering Drawings
+ Part B - Introduction to New Product Development
2 lectures 13:52

New Product Development is critical for any organization to stay competitive. Efficient NPD process helps manufacturers to innovate faster and reduce time to market, which is critical for their success.

Introduction To New Product Development

New Product Development goes through multiple phases where various information is created and consumed. It is important to understand the input / output of information and the way the are used during these phases.

Phases of NPD
