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:
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.
