Great Bay Community College Technical Blueprint Reading (ACM120)

Students will learn to read blueprints and develop an understanding of how blueprints provide information necessary to control the manufacturing operation and quality outputs. Topics include terminology, standard abbreviations, the different types of lines on a blueprint, and reading different views. Major concentration will be towards ISO standards and geometric definitions, including profiles, parallelism, and true position. Focus will be on both paper and electronic formats. Students will be introduced to CAD environment processes throughout the course. The English inch and Metric dimensional examples will be included.
