The straightest line to mastering engineering.

Engineering isn’t all right-brain thinking; every engineer must master at least the basics of graphics, sketching, and modeling—both freehand and computer-assisted. Whatever your artistic talents, this book will give you the skills you need to develop your visualization skills and express your engineering vision graphically.

Following a unique approach that uses planar projection theory as a framework for discussing freehand sketching techniques, Engineering Design Graphics: Visualization, Sketching and Modeling guides you through critical concepts ranging from projection theory and pictorial sketching to parametric solid modeling and product dissection. From freehand drawing to 3-D CAD, the book introduces you to:

  • Engineering design

  • Sketching and other concepts

  • Planar projections and pictorial views

  • Multiviews

  • Auxiliary and section views

  • Dimensioning and tolerancing

  • Computer-aided product design software

  • Working drawings

  • Product dissection, reverse engineering and redesign

Bringing together topics you’d usually need multiple books to cover, Engineering Design Graphics gives you the skills you need to do visual justice to your brilliant engineering ideas.
