Advanced Blueprint Reading

Advanced CNC Programming and Techniques

Advanced Gear Technology through hands-on exercises, participants will explore advanced gear principles with inspection, geometry and design of gear sets.  To demonstrate the mechanics of two gears during rotation, the involute curve will be reviewed.

Applications of Geometric Dimensioning and Tolerancing to obtain background knowledge concerning functional dimensioning, part datum selection, and reduction in GD&T product costs.  The instructor will also discuss profiling, and tolerancing and gaging, providing dozens of time-saving and cost-saving tips.

AutoCAD Fundamentals explores the many drawing facets provided by AutoCAD.  The students will learn to define the drawing environment and work with the drawing toolbar, the modify toolbar, and the dimension toolbar.  Students will also create a personalized toolbar and learn to use profiles, template/dim styles, threads/blocks, and blocks/insert.  Explore X-Ref, print to scale, identify paper space, produce sketches, and more. 

Basic Blueprint Reading (1.6 CEUs) is intended for all personnel who need to understand the meaning of drawings/prints. Emphasis is placed on understanding multi-view relationships, symbology and conventional dimensioning and tolerancing methods. Numerous exercises involving the reading of prints will be utilized throughout. Participants are encouraged to bring their own prints for discussion.
