Engineering Studies РP3  Braking Systems РGraphics

This topic covers the applications of orthogonal drawings, the importance of tolerances and dimensioning techniques.

Key Concepts

  • The applications of orthogonal drawing
  • AS1100 – Engineering tolerances,¬†dimensioning methods

Discussion Questions

  1. What applications are there for orthogonal drawings to be used by engineers designing components?
  2. What is engineering tolerance?
  3. What would determine the appropriate amount of tolerance in part size and surface finish?
  4. Explain dimensioning detail that can be added to orthogonal views in addition to linear sizes?
