Description From 2020, this unit will be replaced by 301290 - Design Graphics: Communication for Manufacture. This unit introduces formal graphical communication methods used by professionals engaged in the design, manufacture and management of manufactured items. Students will learn how to follow Australian Standards for engineering drawings, and to use Computer-Aided Design (CAD) software for accurately representing and modelling basic parts and assemblies. The documentation of design concepts in the form of three dimensional (3D) computer models provides data that can be applied in a wide variety of ways to facilitate the understanding and production of parts and assemblies. The objective of this unit is to introduce students to the industry standard software and hardware employed to generate these models, via a "hands on" approach to creating 3D data. Issues such as data transfer, rapid prototyping, computer numerical control (CNC) machining and visualisation will also be discussed.
