Computer Aided Engineering Drawing/Graphics is a multidisciplinary course
studied by the first year students either in odd semester or even semester of the academic year.
This course aims to interpret on the principles of orthographic projection
and isometric projection of various objects with appropriate dimensions and annotations.
Computer systems equipped with drawing software and configured to meet the
requirement of the software and a LED projector is provided for the better
demonstration of the course.
Design drawings allow viewers to visualize a machine or its components
before it is manufactured. In the current industrial trend CAD modeling
is an imperative skill expected from all Mechanical engineers. Students
practice the development of 3D drawings of machine components and perform
virtual assembly using industry leading mechanical design software Creo
parametric. Creo parametric modeling and assembly tools enable students
to easily develop a full range of products, from single parts to assemblies
containing thousands of components with accurate fit and modify them within
the assembly model. The lab is equipped with 35 numbers of high end computer
Computer-aided design (CAD) involves creating
computer models defined by geometrical parameters. These models typically
appear on a computer monitor as a three-dimensional representation of a
part or a system of parts, which can be readily altered by changing relevant
parameters. CAD systems enable designers to view objects under a wide variety
Computer-aided manufacturing (CAM) uses geometrical
design data to control automated machinery. CAM systems are associated with
computer numerical control (CNC). These systems differ from older forms of
numerical control (NC) in that geometrical data are encoded mechanically. Since
both CAD and CAM use computer-based methods for encoding geometrical data.
