Drawing For Product Designers - Beginners
Technical drawing is an essential tool for communicating ideas and concepts. Despite the development of ever more sophisticated CAD programs, traditional manual drafting remains as relevant as ever, and it is an essential solid foundation that once learned can later be applied to computer drawing. This course will give you an introduction to the language of technical drawing and the core drawing tools, principles and techniques used by designers.
You will learn through a series of set projects. Topics will include:
- an introduction to drafting equipment
- basic geometry
- line type, scales, views and sections
- lettering and dimensioning
- perspective drawing
Sketches will be used to assist in problem solving and the visualization of spatial relationships.
Entry requirements: None
