Core Plus Aerospace

Instructor: Frank Juno, Boeing Foundational Drawings Instructor

Orthographic Projections and Aerospace Assembly: Join us for a one-day workshop centered around aerospace assembly drawings and orthographic projections.  Immerse yourself in hands-on exercises and develop skills in translating three-dimensional objects onto a two-dimensional plane—a vital skill for all aerospace applications. Learn to interpret and use assembly drawings effectively, ensuring adherence to industry standards, and smooth manufacturing processes. Engage in a collaborative assembly project, working with other attendees to put together mock aerospace assemblies. This practical exercise mirrors real-world challenges faced in aerospace assembly scenarios, providing valuable experience. This workshop is a great occasion to learn skills you can pass onto students, whether they are looking to enter the aerospace industry or for more general manufacturing opportunities. Don't miss out on refining your proficiency in orthographic projections and the practical use of assembly drawings in aerospace assembly.
