    This introduction to descriptive geometry and contemporary drafting guides the student through the essential principles to create engineering drawings that comply with international standards of technical product specification. This heavily updated new edition now applies to CAD as well as conventional drawing. Extensive new coverage is given of:

    • International drafting conventions

    • Methods of spatial visualisation such as multi-view projection

    • Types of views

    • Dimensioning

    • Dimensional and geometric tolerancing

    • Representation of workpiece and machine elements

    • Assembly drawings

    Comprehensible illustrations and clear explanations help the reader master drafting and layout concepts for creating professional engineering drawings. The book provides a large number of exercises for each main topic. This edition covers updated material and reflects the latest ISO standards.

    It is ideal for undergraduates in engineering or product design, students of vocational courses in engineering communication and technology students covering the transition of product specification from design to production.
