Introduction to Graphics Communication for Engineers is a short introductory technical drawing text intended for use in technical drawing or drafting courses at two and four year schools or other technology programs. Powerful computers and CAD software are of little use to engineers who do not fully understand the fundamentals of graphics communication principles and 3-D modeling strategies, or do not possess a level of visualization ability. Because of this, Bertoline concentrates on the concepts and skills necessary to sketch and create 2-D drawings and 3-D CAD models in this text. Bertoline also heightens the book's emphasis on teaching students the techniques and standards of communicating graphically, so that design ideas can be clearly communicated and produced. This book is part of the B.E.S.T. (Basic Engineering Series and Tools), which consists of modularized textbooks offering virtually every topic and specialty likely to be of interest to engineers.
