The basic language of all engineering activities is represented, in the majority of cases, by design processes that involve the engineer in two distinct activities: modeling and communication. In areas such as systems design and analysis, industrial plants and processes, which are typical fields of automotive engineering, the engineer uses technical drawings in order to identify construction solutions, carry out design calculations, and perform a technical-economic comparative analysis of the various solutions. In this sense, technical drawing is not merely a graphical exercise, but becomes a synthesis of the engineer's expertise about a product which must respect economic, manufacturing and functional specifications. Today, the engineering drawing is a document to communicate, in a complete, precise, unambiguous and rigorous way, all information of an industrial component with the main objective of its manufacturing. The course provides the theoretical notions related to the formalization of shape, dimensions, technological, dimensional and geometrical information that will permit the student to make the technical drawing of any mechanical part.

The course provides the theoretical notions related to the formalization of shape, dimensions, technological, dimensional and geometrical information that will permit the student to make the technical drawing of any mechanical part.
The course offers the students the knowledge and methodologies required for modeling and graphic representation of machine components, with particular reference to national and international standards. In particular, the course will deal with aspects of design standardisation, projection and section methods, representation of dimensional and geometric errors. The main mechanical parts will also be described, as well as their representation and dimensioning regulations. The students are expected to acquire the ability to represent and to dimension the most common industrial components, considering their functional and manufacturing requirements, as well as interpreting unambiguously and correctly drawings of parts and assemblies. The module therefore intends to provide undergraduate engineers the knowledge and methodologies necessary for components modeling and graphic description, in accordance to national and international Standards. In more detail, the course deal with the drawing norms, the projection and section methods, the representation of dimensional and geometrical errors. The main mechical parts will be described, with the corresponding norms for representation and dimensioning. Students need to acquire the abilities of interpreting univocally and correctly drawings of parts and assemblies, of representing and dimensioning common machine parts, and choosing autonomously: - the required number of views for a complete representation of the part, - the section techninque more fitting to the part morphology, - the dimensioning method more suitable for describing the functional, techinological and checking requirements and to calculate taper and inclination parameters, - the dimensional tolerances for fits, and their characterization, - the dimensionale tolerances for functional dimension defined by tolerance stack-up analysis - then geometrical tolerances and their datums, - the application and drawing of mechanical connection parts. The study cases proposed during the practice hours offer an application background oriented to common problems that can be found in the professional career. Moreover it is required the cability to manually sketch drawings of mechanical components, to produce 3D models and 2D drawings with Cad tools. The practice assignments offer a background of applications related to common problems and solutions found in the engineering practice.

Le lezioni si svolgono in aula convenzionale e forniscono le nozioni teoriche indicate nel programma. Le esercitazioni a squadre si svolgono nelle aule da disegno e consistono nella rappresentazione grafica tradizionale, anche a mano libera, in assonometria ed in proiezione ortogonale quotata di parti o organi presentati singolarmente, o estratti da complessivi. I componenti devono essere rappresentati nelle viste e sezioni più opportune, indicando quote, tolleranze e rugosità. Devono inoltre essere calcolati giochi ed interferenze. Viene richiesto il metodo di quotatura funzionale. Mediante un software di disegno assistito 2D e 3D parametrico, nelle esercitazioni di laboratorio si realizzano i modelli tridimensionali dei componenti, che verranno poi assemblati con opportune relazioni di accoppiamento per formare un complessivo. Attraverso il software devono essere generate le tavole 2D dei particolari e la distinta dei materiali.

Modalità di esame: prova scritta;
The graphic test ensures that the student has the ability to represent and dimension common machine parts, autonomously choosing the minimum number of views required for the complete representation of the part, the section technique best suited to the morphology of the part, the most appropriate dimensioning system based on functional, technological or control requirements, dimensional tolerances of fit, geometric tolerances and DRF. The student should also be able to represent and dimension the mechanical connections, applying the appropriate standards. At the same time, the ability to perform dimensional fit calculations, with geometrical tolerances, the characterisation of the taper, tilt and taper parameters, the tolerance stack-up calculation on simple assemblies will be tested. The test is evaluated according to the quality of the graphic representation, the correctness of the graphic representation, the dimensions, the ability to perform the required calculations. The verification of the theoretical skills possessed by the student, with particular reference to national and international standards, is evaluated with a series of questions included in the graphic test. The duration of the test does not exceed 3 hours and allows to obtain the maximum evaluation of 30L/30. Practice assignments are mandatory and the drawing must be delivered for evaluation. The final result may vary by a maximum of ±1/30.
