New from Delmar Learning, Fundamentals of Modern Drafting exposes readers to the world of contemporary drafting, offering a direct route to understanding and applying basic technical and engineering drawing concepts such as sketching and lettering guidelines, drafting conventions and formats, multiview, development, and pictorial drawing procedures, geometric tolerancing practices, and more! The author's skill-based, building-block approach uses freehand sketching, instrument drawing, and introductory CAD skills to introduce readers, in logical progression, to 100% of the drafting fundamentals they need to successfully prepare finished working drawings for production. Exercises in every chapter of this heavily illustrated yet cost-effective book progress from simple to complex propelling readers to new hands-on skills while promoting creativity. In-depth discussion of the design process, use of current ASME 14.5M-1994 standards, and links from manual drafting exercises in the text to CADD exercises in the companion Workbook provide optimal preparation for today's workplace. Coverage of descriptive geometry is also included, paving the way for readers who want to pursue further study of more advanced engineering design graphics principles and techniques.
