Orthographic Projections

When entering this year’s STEM course, I wanted to focus on equipping the students with valuable skills that relate to engineering, problem solving and organizational thinking. Below are a few pictures from our orthographic drawing exercise, which promotes accurate drawings in an engineering design context.

The deliverables for this exercise include (i) an isometric drawing, (ii) a three-dimensional reconstruction, and dimensional photographs from each orthogonal plane that show visible and hidden features. Students learn basic rules of build safety using a hack saw and hot glue gun.
