Book Description

For more than 25 years, students have relied on this trusted text for easy-to-read, comprehensive drafting and design instruction that complies with the latest ANSI and ASME industry standards for mechanical drafting. The Sixth Edition of ENGINEERING DRAWING AND DESIGN continues this tradition of excellence with a multitude of real, high-quality industry drawings and more than 1,000 drafting, design, and practical application problems--including many new to the current edition. The text showcases actual product designs in all phases, from concept through manufacturing, marketing, and distribution. In addition, the engineering design process now features new material related to production practices that eliminate waste in all phases, and the authors describe practices to improve process output quality by using quality management methods to identify the causes of defects, remove them, and minimize manufacturing variables.

2It's best for learning the history of drafting and manual drafting ...
By Amazon Customer
I needed this for a class where I learned SolidWorks 2016. This book is very generic when it comes to teaching software, offering little to no help, then again, this edition is REALLY dated. It's best for learning the history of drafting and manual drafting techniques. Obviously, it's very dry and boring.

5A plethora of information, and a good resource after you take class.
By Avid Buyer
This is an excellent book for learning design, CAD stuff, dimensioning, tolerancing, and everything in between. My teacher chose this book because it is such a wealth of information. The writing in this book is also reader friendly. A good reference after you finish the classes the book is required for.

I'm holding onto this book even though I could get a decent amount of money if I were to resell.

5Drafting student 101
By SanInUtah
According to my husband this is the quintessential, only, bible for digital drafting and design students. He relies on it constantly.
