This book focuses on strengthening 3D visualization skills through sketching exercises. It does not make reference to any particular computer-aided design software package.

Points emphasized:

  • Shape representation and problem solving using freehand sketching. Assignments can be completed outside class.
  • Surface Analysis -- A powerful approach to teaching visualization.
  • Establishes a process for solving problems. Students can solve features of objects before they can "see" the shapes.
  • Challenging problems. Worksheet layouts allow faster progress.
  • Students learn how to think about shapes in three dimensions.
  • Students can prove every line on a drawing. There is no question whether the answer is correct or not.
