This unit of competency covers the skills and knowledge required to complete freehand sketches to illustrate or communicate information to be used in engineering drafting applications. It covers standard drawing conventions and techniques to represent the subject in appropriate proportion and view.
The unit is suitable for those working within a computer-aided design (CAD), drafting work, engineering trades, or technical office environment. Sketches may be used as part of the drafting process to illustrate or communicate information about design, worksite, layout plan or construction features. The unit includes the ability to apply standard drawing conventions to sketching 2D orthogonal and pictorial freehand drawings and sectional views.
Skill practice exercises consist of the preparation of freehand sketches in orthogonal and pictorial representations.
A practice competency is included at the end of the book to prepare the student.Download our example PDF
