TECHNICAL DRAWING FOR ENGINEERING COMMUNICATION, 7E offers a fresh, modern approach to technical drawing that combines the most current industry standards with up-to-date technologies and software, resulting in a valuable, highly relevant resource you won't want to be without. The book builds on features that made its previous editions so successful: comprehensive coverage of the "total technical drawing experience" that explores both the basic and advanced aspects of engineering and industrial technology and reviews both computer modeling and more traditional methods of technical drawing. Enhancements for the seventh edition include updates based on industry trends and regulations, an all-new chapter on employability skills, and additional content on SolidWorks 3D modeling software for drafting technicians. The end result is a tool that will give you the real-world skills needed for a successful career in CAD, drafting, or design.
