Drafting & Design: Engineering Drawing Using Manual and CAD Techniques is a highly illustrated, complete text designed to teach the practices and techniques used by drafters. Written to meet the educational needs of both beginning and advanced students, Drafting & Design features comprehensive instruction in both manual (traditional) drafting and computer-aided drafting (CAD).
The Seventh Edition has been extensively revised and expanded to cover manual drafting and CAD in tandem. Step-by-step, detailed drafting procedures are presented throughout the text to illustrate the tools and techniques of both methods. For each drafting task presented, manual and CAD procedures are given in sequence to explain both approaches to drafting.
Two new chapters on CAD provide in-depth coverage of CAD principles, commands, and applications. A new chapter on structural drafting is included in addition to other chapters on drafting disciplines, including architectural drafting, electrical and electronics drafting, map and survey drafting, and welding drafting.
New features include new drafting problems, new hands-on drafting procedures, many new illustrations, and new CAD drafting coverage throughout the text.
Detailed instruction is provided to illustrate orthographic projection, multiview drawings, dimensioning, and the development of section views, pictorial drawings, auxiliary views, revolutions, intersections, and developments.
In addition to drafting instruction, Drafting & Design provides coverage of drafting careers, drawing management, and manufacturing processes. Coverage builds from geometric constructions to more advanced topics, including geometric dimensioning and tolerancing. A problem-solving approach is emphasized throughout the text with strict adherence to ANSI and industry standards.
