Goals and objectives
of the course in terms
of competences and skills
Acquire the knowledge about theoretical aspects of spatial object representation in the amount of basic knowledge of descriptive geometry. Be able to use this knowledge in practice while creating sketches and drawings for details and assemblies.
Learning outcomes
and assessment
Students will know the method of multiview drawing formation. Will be able to construct points, lines and planes in three projections. Will be able to represent simple geometric objects in projections - Practical class exercise, home assignments, intermediate test. Evaluate the ability to use projection method in practice and neatness of completed graphic exercise.
Are able to represent geometric objects in multiview drawing and construct mental section with section planes. Are be able to recognize represented spatial geometric elements in multiview drawing. - Practical class exercises, home assignments, exam. Evaluate the ability to read and represent geometric objects in drawing and neatness of completed graphic exercise
Students are able to represent simple details in multiview drawing and axonometric projection, complete required sections and dimension properly. Are able create sketches of simple details. - Practical class exercises, home assignments. Evaluate the ability to decompose simple detail into geometric objects, represent them in drawing and neatness of completed graphic exercise.
