Front Cover
PHI Learning Pvt. Ltd., Jan 1, 2004 - Technology & Engineering - 324 pages
This self-contained comprehensive book has been written to cover almost all important topics on engineering drawing to introduce polytechnic and undergraduate students of engineering to the standards and convention of technical drawing. Initial chapters of the book cover basics of line work, engineering scales, engineering curves and dimensioning practices. In the next stage, fundamental principles of projection are discussed in detail. Subsequent chapters cover topics on orthographic projections of points, lines, planes and solids. First-angle projections have been adopted throughout the chapters covering orthographic projection. With a strong emphasis on creating accurate and clear drawings, a chapter on AutoCAD software is also included in the book. The chapter is organized such that it describes the application of the software presenting and applying these standards. More importantly, all the elaborations of the software are alone making use of screen captures taken from the AutoCAD screen so that a novice user will be able to understand its application easily. A large number of solved examples with detailed steps examining methods for solving them have been incorporated to help students solve the unsolved problems.
