EAT100 Engineering Drawing – Assessment and Task List
50% of your assessment in EAT100 will comprise two time constrained
assignments in engineering drawing. The first assignment is worth 30% of the
total for the engineering drawing component and the second 70%.
The first assignment entails the completion of the 15 tasks, listed below, on or
before Friday 23rd April 2010.
A mark will be awarded in proportion to the number of tasks successfully
completed, for example if you complete 10 out of the 15 you will get 10/15 X
100 = 67%. There is no good reason why you should not get 100%.
The second assignment is a mini examination in drawing a component using a
CAD programme. If you have successfully completed all of the tasks listed
below before that time, you should have little difficulty in doing this.
The CAD exam will be an open book exam, you can bring your notes. You
should also bring a memory stick containing a selection of drawing borders,
one of which you can drop onto your otherwise completed drawing.
I take the view that engineering drawings are either correct or incorrect. If you
submit a drawing task for assessment I will either pass it, or tell you why it is
wrong and ask you to re-work and re-submit it. You can re-submit as many
times as you like, but you must work within the overall time constraint for the
assignment. Work should only be submitted during the timetabled classes.
Work submitted after the Friday 23rd April 2010 will not be counted towards
the first assignment.
Students are expected to complete the following tasks, taken from “An
Introduction to Engineering Drawing”, using hand drawing: -
1. Isometrics - Produce an isometric drawing of each of the objects
shown in orthographic projection. Be sure to choose a view that shows
the main features of the object, don’t draw a blank face!
2. First Angle Projection – draw three aligned views front, side and plan
view, using 1st angle projection, of each of the objects shown as
isometric drawings. Show me one before doing all of them!
3. Third Angle Projection – as above, but using the second sheet of
isometric shapes and using 3rd angle projection
4. Fully dimensioned first angle drawing of crosshead including section
(FigQ1) – be sure to align your views and choose sensible datums for
your dimensions. Read the notes on drawing sections before
5. Exercise on tolerancing – Tutorial 3
It will be necessary to work through all of the exercises in the booklet “Two
Dimensional Drawing using Microstation V8 CAD”, but the following samples
should be drawn in Microstation and submitted for assessment.
6. Three views, front, side and plan, taken from “An Introduction to
Engineering Drawing” as in (2) above, but in third angle
7. Three views, front side and plan, as in (3) above but in first angle
8. Figure 4 P49 – House using Accudraw
9. Page 72 (without dimensions) – Shaft
10. P84 – Drawing border
11. P92 - Railway Wheel
12. P112 Figure Q3 – Fully dimensioned drawing within border
13. P122 Figure 9 - Fully dimensioned drawing within border
14. P128 Fig Q1 – Mobile Phone Casing, Fully dimensioned drawing within
