newcadnoob Posted June 27, 2020 Share Posted June 27, 2020 Hello, i'm doing a technical drafting course which had no prerequisites so naturally thought i'd be learning everything I needed to know. On the assignment i'm on it talks about drawing this component and to not hatch the flange, to use this weld on the boss to change this to that etc. The thing is I don't know anything about it so I had to google what a flange and boss etc were. In all the material for the course and additional reading we were given there is no mention of what these parts of a component are etc or anything much about engineering or fabrication, it is all quite literally only on drawing by hand or with CAD. Iv'e tried looking for beginner books on mechanical engineering, fabrication, manufacturing etc but none of them have talked about things like what a boss, flange etc is. I'm sure there is going to be plenty more things related to engineering/manufacturing and not technical drafting which I don't know but will need to, so does anyone know any books that cover the things i'll likely be expected to know ( even though the course said there was no requisite knowledge required o.O) Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
