"Fundamentals of Graphics Communication" presents a modern approach to engineering and technical graphics. It covers drawing techniques from a modern, CAD-oriented perspective, as well as 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 to try. The text is supported by a rich assortment of supplements, including CAD workbooks, additional drawing problems, animation, tutorials, and a dynamic On-Line Learning center for students and instructors.
