Learning outcomes To enable students to implement the knowledge of the Technical Drawing through a Computer Aided Design (CAD) computer application.
After attending this course, students should:
- Have grasped the fundamental concepts of Technical Design;
- To be able to read and interpret a technical drawing correctly;
- To be prepared to carry out the drawings and drawings necessary for the design of new products and
Syllabus The Technical Drawing:
- Graphic Communication;
- Modes of representation;
- The Technical Drawing in the various phases of a project.
Computer Aided Technical Drawing (CAD):
- Evolution of CAD - applications;
- Equipment.
Orthogonal projections
a) Concepts:
- Classification;
- Orthogonal projections: projections of the cube views (multiple views);
- Types of lines.
b) Selection of views:
- Necessary and sufficient views ;
- Views: partial, interrupted and auxiliaries;
- Representations: conventional and simplified.
c) Reading Projections.
Quick perspectives of geométric solids:
- Choice of position;
- Methods of construction;
- Perspective of a circle.
- Dimensioning of special representations;
- Fundamental Aspects;
- Tolerances.
Cuts and Sections
Specific features of the software (SolidWorks):
- Modelling of solids and surfaces;
- Assembly of sets;
- Representation of projections;
- Analysis of Engineering: Introduction to CosmosWorks.

Teaching Methodologies and Assessment Criteria The evaluation of the teaching-learning process throughout teaching activities, on a scale of 0 to 20 values, results from a series of works done at home and the application of an individual test: the first, to which 6 values are attributed, consist of a series of parts and assemblies that have already been proposed to students; and the second, of 14 values, consists of an assembly in SOLIDWORKS based on a set of 5 or 6 parts that should also be executed in 3D by students from given orthogonal views.
Language Portuguese. Tutorial support is available in English.
