ME3381 Computer Aided Machine Drawing Syllabus:

ME3381 Computer Aided Machine Drawing Syllabus – Anna University Regulation 2021


1 To acquaint the skills and practical experience in handling 2D drafting and 3D modelling software systems, standard drawing practices using fits and tolerances.
2 To prepare assembly drawings both manually and using standard CAD packages.
3 To Preparing standard drawing layout for modeled parts, assemblies with BoM.


Code of practice for Engineering Drawing, BIS specifications – Welding symbols, riveted joints, keys, fasteners – Reference to hand book for the selection of standard components like bolts, nuts, screws, keys etc. – Limits, Fits – Tolerancing of individual dimensions IS919- Specification of Fits – Preparation of production drawings and reading of part and assembly drawings, basic principles of Geometric Dimensioning &Tolerancing.


Drawing, Editing, Dimensioning, Layering, Hatching, Block, Array, Detailing, Detailed Drawing.
1. Bearings – Bush Bearing,
2. Valves – Safety and Non-return Valves.
3. Couplings – Flange, Oldham’s, Muff, Gear couplings.
4. Joints – Universal, Knuckle, Gib& Cotter, Strap, Sleeve &Cotter joints.
5. Engine parts – Piston, Connecting Rod, Crosshead (vertical and horizontal), Stuffing box, multi-plate clutch.
6. Machine Components – Screw Jack, Machine Vice, LatheTail Stock, Lathe Chuck, Plummer Block, Vane and Gear pumps.
Total: 20% of classes for theory classes and 80% of classes for practice
Note: 25% of assembly drawings must be done manually and remaining 75% of assembly drawings must be done by using any CAD software. The above tasks can be performed manually and using standard commercial 2D CAD software.


At the end of the course the students would be able to
1. Prepare standard drawing layout for modelled assemblies with BoM.
2. Model orthogonal views of machine components.
3. Prepare standard drawing layout for modelled parts
