Learning outcomes:
After successfully completing this course, students will be able to use technical drawings passively and actively, i.e:
- They will be able to read technical drawings, derive the three-dimensional shape of components from them and identify their function,
- They will be able to represent and dimension components in accordance with standards and to tolerate them according to their function,
- They will be able to design simple assemblies, as well as represent and structure them according to standards.
Within the scope of a final term paper, students will demonstrate that they are capable of designing the components of a manageable production device, illustrating them in technical drawings, and dimensioning and tolerating them in a manner appropriate to their function and production. In doing so, they will be able to use of the IOS tolerance and fit system and the dimensional chain theory.
