Maschinentechnisches Zeichnen I

Georg Glaeser
Art and Technology, Geometry
2021W, Vorlesungen (VO), 2.0 ECTS, 2.0 semester hours, course number 2205046


In this course, students will learn the most important notations and shorthand symbols.

Mechanical drawing has its own rules, which do not always coincide with the rules of Descriptive Geometry but are nevertheless well-conceived and useful.

Even in times of computer-assisted 3D rendering, mechanical drawing is nonetheless important. For one, it is only possible to read and interpret older plans and mechanical drawings if one knows the corresponding rules and conventions.

Even in this technically oriented lecture (aimed at industrial designers), there is a great deal of hand drawing -- at a later stage, CAD programs will be appropriate tools.


(If it is going to be necessary to switch to distance learning during the semester, this course will be continued virtually. More information will be provided in due time.)



Due to the nationwide lockdown, the next session (November 24th 2021) will be held on Zoom. Link will be provided via email.
