MFG* K121 - Sheet Metal Blueprint Reading


2 CREDIT HOURS
Two important aspects of metalwork are reading and interrupting dimensions, tolerances, bend lines, and welding symbols in order to fabricate parts to the specifications on the blueprint. Metal fabricators must be skilled at visualizing a 3-dimensional structure from 2-dimensional figures and creating drawings, including hand sketches and orthographic projections. In this course, students complete classroom study and lab work, practicing identification of structural shapes, surface features, forming details weld positions, and weld symbols on actual blueprints. Lessons explore the relationship and coordination between blueprint draftsmen and metal fabricators.
