In Detail

Engineering Graphics: Tools for the Mind is a comprehensive engineering textbook that combines hand sketching, audio/video presentation, and an engineering graphics digital reference book into a single textbook. All audio/video presentations and the engineering graphics digital reference book are contained in a single DVD bundled with the textbook.

Engineering Graphics: Tools for the Mind is made up of eight sections. Each section starts with an explanation of the topic and is followed by hand sketching exercises for the student to complete. All 76 sketching exercises found in the textbook are printed on perforated paper making it easy for students to turn in for review.

The textbook covers the following topics:

  • Lettering
  • Sketching
  • Orthographic Projection
