This unit of competency covers the skills and knowledge required to identify drawing requirements, preparing engineering drawings and an engineering parts list, and issuing the drawings. Drawings include 2-D drawings to Australian Standard (AS) 1100.101–1992 Technical drawing – General principles.
This unit is suitable for those working within a drafting work environment where most specifications required for the drawing are already determined. Specifications may be obtained from design information, customer requirements, sketches and preliminary layouts.Drawings will usually be carried out with the use of computer-aided design (CAD) systems but may also be done manually. Drawings are produced to AS 1100.101–1992 Technical drawing – General principles, from predetermined critical dimensions and specifications.If a CAD system is used, the unit MEM30031A Operate computer-aided design (CAD) system to produce basic drawing elements, should also be selected. This unit applies to all engineering and manufacturing environments.
