Course outline:

Designers use drawings when developing ideas. Well-prepared engineering drawings are used to communicate with manufacturers of components and devices. These drawings describe products and include instructions about manufacturing, assembly and operation. Clear, complete and accurate drawings help to prevent expensive and/or dangerous mistakes. 

Engineering Graphics and Design is a graphic language incorporating the following: 

  • the ability to visualize or perceive a graphic; 
  • knowledge and understanding of drawing principles and practices; 
  • Freehand, instrument and CAD drawings and the Design Process. 

By the end of the course participants will be able to:

  • Prepare design records for real parts and use the existing standards 
  • Understand the engineering drawing to the extent necessary to identify the actions needed to implement, assembly and disassembly machinery components 
  • Identify parts and relationships conditioning a correct design assembly 
  • Read execution and exploded view drawings and the relationships between the components 
  • Manage the design documentation in accordance with applicable standards 
  • Avoid errors in analysing execution drawings prepared in accordance with standards other than by the European E method 

Who Should Attend:

The training is intended for the staff of designers, Draughtsperson, technologists, machine and machine tools operators, as well as maintenance services workers and all those interested in gaining knowledge on technical drawing. 

The optimum group for this training is a team of employees working in the same unit (including the manager, technicians and engineers). This way, it is possible to explore the limitations of the workers and gaps in their knowledge and to assess any discrepancies in expectations between the managers and junior staff. 

Course Outline:

  • Standardization in the engineering drawing 
  • Standardized elements in the engineering drawing:
  • guidelines for drawing lines 
  • technical writing (handwritten and CAD systems) 
  • drawing sheet formats (dimensions, layout, areas, organization diagram) 
  • title blocks 
  • drawing scales 
  • Variants of technical drawings (including: execution drawings, exploded view drawings and assembly drawings). 
  • Graphic representation forms of three-dimensional objects: 
  1. general guidelines for selection of basic view or projection 
  2. axonometric profiles (isometric projection, diametric projection, axonometric projection) 
  • Methods and guidelines for rectangular projection: 
  1. rectangular projection according to the European E method and American A method 
  2. simplified drawings on the views of projected objects 
  • Sections (general rules, standards, methods of denoting sections). 
  • General principles of dimensioning: 
  1. chain, parallel, combined dimensioning 
  2. linear dimensioning, dimensioning angles, diameters and radii of arcs of circles 
  3. dimensioning of bases: engineering, machining (technological and measuring) 
  • Marking surface roughness of items shown in drawings:
  1. surface roughness 
  2. surface waviness 
  3. state of the surface after the heat treatment and application of coatings 
  • Marking inaccuracies of forms and dimensions, including: 
  1. shape deviations 
  2. displacement 
  3. form and position deviations 
  4. tolerances 
  5. fits of compressed units 
  • A simplified representation of typical machine elements, including: 
  1. separable and permanent connections 
  2. shafts 
  3. seals 
  4. roller bearings 
  5. wheels and gears 
  • Rules of drawing documentation management (numbering and recording drawings, filing and storing drawings) 
  • Practical exercises – each of the theoretical blocks is followed by practical exercises that enable the students to test the acquired knowledge and skills for further use at their work. Students work on sketches 

End of the workshop



While both In-House and Online training can present with cost-effectiveness and time-efficacy, there are some very specific differences between in-house courses and those based online.
The demand for additional courses by individuals or groups of people is increasing. Still, it depends entirely on the preferences of a person what type of training he or she wants to receive. Online courses and in-house training carry some similarities but they are considered to exhibit some very pivotal differences too. Despite that, both types of learning can be really beneficial for attendees.
