Sketching Elements In technical sketching you will be creating drawings for the purpose of sharing ideas visually. This is a critical skill in engineering design for all disciplines. Balance quickness vs neatness - the goal is to communicate your idea efficiently. All sketches will be comprised of two basic elements: Lines Curves (usually circular or elliptical) You will learn to make two kinds of sketches: Isometric (looks 3D) Multiview (looks 2D)

Faces, Edges, and Vertices Any object can be defined by its boundary . This boundary is made up of surfaces, called faces . Each face is bounded by edges . Each edge is bounded by vertices . Faces can be any mathematically definable surface but we will usually restrict ourselves to planar, cylindrical, conical, and spherical surfaces. Edges can be any curves in three-space but we will generally restrict ourselves to lines, circular arcs, and elliptical arcs. However, the intersection of simple primitives such as two cylinders will result in more complex curves.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
