Fundamentals of Graphics Communication presents a modern approach to engineering and technical graphics. It covers drawing techniques from both a contemporary, CAD-oriented perspective and a traditional perspective. The engineering design process receives special attention throughout this text, through the use of design case studies, a consistent problem-solving methodology, many real examples taken from industry, and a selection of design problems for the student.
New features of this edition include: new sections on virtual reality; updated surface modeling coverage; new Design in Industry cases from Kohler, John Deere, Stryker Medical, among others; dozens of tear-out worksheets for additional drawing and sketching practice; and more.
The text is supported by a rich assortment of supplements, including a dynamic Online Learning center for students and instructors with an image bank, animations, AutoCAD problems, career links, and quizzes.
