To fully understand the information found on real-world manufacturing and mechanical engineering drawings, one must consider important information about the processes represented, the dimensional and geometric tolerances specified, and the assembly requirements for those drawings. This enhanced edition takes a practical approach to print reading, with fundamental through advanced coverage that demonstrates industry standards essential for pursuing careers in the 21st century. Readers will learn step-by-step how to interpret actual industry prints while building the knowledge and skills that will allow them to read complete sets of working drawings. Realistic examples, illustrations, related tests, and print reading problems are based on real world engineering prints that comply with ANSI, ASME, AWS, and other related standards.

Product Benefits:

  • concepts are written and presented with current computer-aided drafting (CAD) technology standards to coach users in learning to read complete sets of working drawings in manufacturing and mechanical engineering
  • all illustrative examples and prints are created using quality CAD that demonstrates the best current industry standards
  • chapter tests are provided for review and to challenge competencies learned
  • perfect balance is achieved between written text and support documentation, making this an expansive text for a blueprint reading course, as well as a handy reference resource
