Fundamental Sketching and Engineering Drawing

Task Description

Standards

In this task, students will use the simulation to create simple isometric drawings.

Standard 10: Building on the knowledge of a two-dimensional drawing, create simple isometric (3-D Pictorial) drawings, properly using lines (e.g., object, hidden, center), labels and dimensioning techniques.

 Content Understandings

Extending Understandings

Upon successful completion of these tasks students will demonstrate the ability to:

 

  1. Explain how different components of engineering drawings fit together.
  2. Create simple isometric drawings.

 

To move students towards deeper understanding, they should be given opportunities to:

 

  • Explain how isometric drawings are utilized in real world scenarios.
  • Explain the significance of dimensioning techniques.

Support Strategies

If students are struggling to access this task, additional supports and strategies could be employed as students are engaging with the task.
