Summary

This full-color text offers a clear, complete introduction and detailed reference for creating 3D models and 2D documentation drawings. Building on its reputation as a trusted reference, this edition expands on the role that 3D CAD databases now play in design and documentation. Superbly integrated illustrations, text, step-by-step instructions, and navigation make it easier than ever to master key skills and knowledge. Throughout, the authors demonstrate 3D and 2D drawing skills and CAD usage in real-world work practice in today’s leading disciplines. They combine strong technical detail, real-world examples, and current standards, materials, industries, and processes–all in a format that is efficient, colorful, and visual.

 Features:

  • Splash Spread: Appealing chapter opener provides context and motivation.
  • References and Web Links: Useful weblinks and standards provided upfront in each chapter.
  • Understanding Section: Foundational introductions, tabbed for easy navigation, outline each topic’s importance, use, visualization tips, and theory.
  • Detail Section: Detailed, well-tested explanations of drawing techniques, variations, and examples–organized into quick-read sections, numbered for easy reference.
  • CAD at Work Section: Breakout pages offer tips on generating drawings from 2D or 3D models.
  • Portfolio Section: Examples of finished drawings show how techniques are applied in the real world.
  • Key Words: Italicized on first reference, summarized after each chapter.
