Principles of Applied Engineering

Week of April 20

 

Teacher: Brandon Orr  brandon.orr@jisd.org

 

Assignment  

 

Your mission for this week, accepting it is wise, is to take the conceptual drawing that you created for last week’s “mission” and create a detailed drawing based on it. A detailed drawing contains the details of the object in which you are trying to sketch. You should have a front, back, 2 sides, top, and bottom views of the object with detailed measurements. Remember, I should be able to take the plans of your detailed drawing, and build whatever it is that you have chosen as your object. Once you complete your drawing, take a picture of it , and send it to me via email at brandon.orr@jisd.org. If you do not have internet, you may drop it off in the turn in box.

Week of April 13

Your mission, you must accept it, for this week is to create a conceptual drawing (3D type drawing) of something that you find in your house. Remember, a conceptual drawing does not contain any measurements; it is merely a picture. We will build on this conceptual drawing for weeks to come. Once your drawing is complete, take a picture of it, and send it to me via email at brandon.orr@jisd.org  or you may drop it off in the turn in box.
