Description

With the use of real world examples and illustrations, Design Graphics for Engineering Communication introduces students to the fundamental concepts of Engineering Graphics and their role in the design process. The authors highlight common techniques, practices, and standards used in industry in a manner that is motivating and easy to understand. Topics include visualization, orthographic projection, dimensions and tolerances, scaling, and parametric solid modeling. Opportunities to practice, study, and learn abound, with problems at the end of each chapter, quizzes, and assembly modeling projects.
