Study materials focused on specific theories are an essential element of education at universities. These types of study materials are generally available at all universities. An advantage and a disadvantage of these types of study materials is their high theoretical content. However, engineering companies require graduates who are able to apply their knowledge in practice. Therefore, a new concept of e-learning study materials has been developed. These new e-learning study materials are focused on projects from industrial practice. Students can better acquire theoretical knowledge and learn practical techniques using these new study materials. Another advantage is the high comprehensiveness of these study materials. There are several example projects and each of these projects is one machine. Every machine is accompanied with complete drawing documentation, calculation reports, welding technology, 3D PDF etc. One machine is chosen for descriptions of these study materials and their individual parts.
