A revision of the landmark text in engineering graphics. While maintaining this book's hallmark feature, a set of precise and fully-machinable drawing, The Sixth edition features a new, modern, and motivating pedagogy that improves the student learning experience. Giesecke now features its own web page with animations, a VRML exploration section, and case studies, and also a presentation CD for instructors.

The new edition of this book continues to provide thorough coverage of technical drawing and design, descriptive geometry, graphs and graphical computation, and computer graphics. It contains a wide range of problems and can be used as a reference manual. Expanded coverage of computer graphics introduces readers to this emerging and powerful technology. The authors have incorporated new industriad practices, trends, and developments. The increased emphasis on the design function of the engineer is evident throughout.From the Inside Flap:
PREFACE ABOUT THIS BOOK
Over the last sixty years, Engineering Graphics has taught well over a million students the practices and techniques of graphical communication. Both instructors and their students have come to depend on this text as the authority on the subject, and most students have used this book as a professional reference long after they have finished taking this course. Why has this book been so successful? First, the main goal of the text has always been to explain each principle so clearly that the student is certain to understand it, and to make the text interesting enough to encourage all students to read and study on their own. Secondly, this book has also had what are unquestionably the best, most detailed, and accurate set of drawings on the market. A student skilled with this book's drawings will have a full repertoire of graphical skills in his or her hands. Lastly Engineering Graphics has continually sought to address the new technologies, and the skills that constantly change this field. By doing so, this text prepares students to enter the marketplace and face the challenges of a rapidly changing playing field. THE SEVENTH EDITION
The Seventh Edition of Engineering Graphics continues to offer the best coverage of basic graphics principles available. Edition after edition, this text serves as the authoritative source on the subject. With this new version, we have acted upon the requests of over 30 reviewers to improve certain aspects of the book while preserving its core presentation. In particular, this new volume features:
Greatly increased coverage of design process in chapter 14. This chapter now includes coverage of 3-D solid modeling, and parametric or constraint based modeling. Thoroughly revised chapter on manufacturing processes. We especially thank Professor Serope Kalpakjian of the Illinois Institute of Technology and the author of Manufacturing Engineering and Technology for his assistance with this chapter. Over 50 brand new problems — These problems feature parts that are not cast iron and that from a variety of industries. Material on Instrumental Drawing and Lettering condensed to one chapter. New coverage of Geometric Dimensioning and Tolerancing. Extensive updating of text graphics to comply to most recent ANSI standards. New "Graphics Spotlights" feature that highlights a particular use of graphics in industry. A decrease in the overall size of the book — Instructors have told us that students are finding books too large. However, they want their students to have access to important reference material. To achieve both these goals, we have eliminated chapters on Graphs and Diagrams and Alignment Charts included in the last edition, and included them in Adobe pdf format on a free CD. This CD also contains over 30 animations of graphics concepts. Updated web site prenhall/giesecke now includes even more questions for review, as well as a new feature available for January of 2000 that lets professors create their own on-line syllabus. Using a simple interface, instructors build a graphic assignment list and use it to interact with their class over the web. This site also features links to other graphics related areas, a selection of animations available for class instruction or student review, an exploration of VRML technology, a case studies exploring how graphics communication is handled at an engineering company, and more. This site will be a constant resource to help instructors and students remain as current as possible. Eight Page Color Insert — To give students a feel for how color is often used in CAD software and other technological processes, but without overloading and obscuring the book's core content, we have included an eight page color insert. SUPPLEMENTS INSTRUCTOR'S MANUAL WITH SOLUTIONS/RESOURCE CD
This new manual prepared by Tom Kane of Pueblo Community College includes outlines, teaching tips, extra quiz questions, and other tools designed to aid in class preparation. In addition, this manual comes with a new CD-ROM containing answer files for over 450 Giesecke drawing problems. The problems are in both dwg and dwf form for easy electronic access and display. This CD also includes pdf files of all art in the text for quick integration in course web pages. Instructors have long asked for this supplement and we are happy to provide it with the new edition. WORKBOOKS
Three workbooks with additional problems are available. These workbooks are fully class tested for effectiveness and relevance to the course. They range from having more traditional problems to more modern approaches.
Engineering Drawing, Problem Series 1 (ISBN—0-13658536-1): Contains traditional, mechanical workbook problems. Engineering Drawing, Problem Series 2 (ISBN—0-13658881-6): Contains traditional problems with an emphasis on engineering concepts. Engineering Drawing, Problem Series 3, New 2nd Edition (ISBN—0-13-025954-3): The new edition of a workbook by Paige Davis and Karen Juneau of the Louisiana State University. This book contains modern problems, as well as an extensive CAD based project, and comes with its own disk of starter CAD files. WORLDWIDE WEB SITE—
AVAILABLE WITH SYLLABUS BUILDER FOR
In order to provide instructors and their students with the most exciting information available, Prentice Hall has created the Giesecke Web Site. This site now includes even more questions for review, as well as a new feature available for January of 2000 that lets professors create their own on-line syllabus. Using a simple interface, instructors build a graphic assignment list and use it to interact with their class over the web. This site features links to other graphics related areas, a selection of animations available for class instruction or student review, an exploration of VRML technology, a case study exploring how graphics communication is handled at an engineering company, and more. We hope it will be a constant resource to help instructors and students remain as current as possible. PRENTICE HALL NEW YORK TIMES SUPPLEMENT
