Abstract (Summary)
SUMMARY: "The technological impact of CAD on the teaching of Graphic Expression in Engineering" TEXT: This study focuses on the methodological changes brought about by the appearance of the new design tool CAD 3D and the very important consequences it has had on brought about by the appearance of the new design tool CAD 3D regarding the practice and the contents of the field of Graphic Engineering. The syllabi of the Graphic Engineering courses in engineering schools are described. The aims and the contents of said subjects are analysed. Typical practical exercises from the courses are shown and their solution using both manual and digital tools is discussed with the aim of reflecting on and analysing the differences between the methods employed. The materials used in 3D geometric modelling are described, and the methods employed by the dihedral system are studied in combination with those used by CAD 3D. Lastly, the construction elements and the most common operations used in the generation of 3D models are shown. The most relevant consequences of the impact of CAD on the teaching of Graphic Engineering are detailed in the conclusion. The ideas born from the analysis ofA discussion of the results shows that the data collected and which corroborate the aims and the hypotheseis of the thesis are defended. Possible avenues for future research to develop are suggested.
