Having been developed concurrently with teaching Engineering Drawing over a very long period of time, the Engineering Drawing Guide addresses many of the common questions and difficulties that students face when first introduced to the subject, through well thought out examples and exercises. It has many illustrations, step by step examples and exercises with model answers, which are aligned to the mechanical engineering code of drafting practice. The Duality Principle is introduced as this important concept is still very relevant in the new world of 3D Technical Product Specification. Computer Aided Design and Drafting is used in Architectural, Surveying, Civil, Electrical, Chemical, Agricultural and Mechanical Engineering environments. As the prescribed textbook for the Engineering Drawing module for the School of Engineering, it includes material from the fundamentals of engineering drawing all the way through to Computer-Aided Drawing and Design. The comprehensive scope of this new edition encompasses topics such as orthographic and pictorial projections, dimensional, geometrical and surface tolerancing, 3D annotation and the duality principle, along with numerous examples of electrical and hydraulic diagrams with symbols and applications of cams, bearings, welding and adhesives. It has also successfully assisted final year students at university with their research and project work.
Likewise the University of KwaZulu-Natal has used it since its initial edition in 1996. This book is a perfect learning aid for students who have not been familiar with engineering drawing. This guide was specifically designed for 1st year university students, especially those who were not exposed to technical drawing at school. . It is with great pleasure to confirm that Mr S.
This fifth edition continues its twenty year tradition of excellence with a multitude of actual quality industry drawings that demonstrate content and provide problems for real world, practical application. This makes the life of a drawing lecturer significantly easier. In addition, it may also be helpful to apprentices in the engineering environment. It is also a very handy reference guide for senior students and graduates to consult when producing design drawings. It is equally suitable for use in project-based first-year courses, formal engineering design courses, and capstone project courses. The information in this guide has been accumulated, formulated, and compiled over decades of experience working in industry and education.
The book helps students acquire design skills as they experience the activity of design by doing design projects. We strongly recommend his services. This approach makes this manual an ideal companion for students studying vocational courses in Technical Product Specification, undergraduates studying engineering or product design and any budding engineer beginning a career in design. This guide has been used amongst other universities , by the faculty of engineering at the University of Stellenbosch for the past five years, for first year students. The additional standards, conventions and explanations for manufacturing drawings in particular are an important addition for reference to anyone who needs a refresher when producing drawings. Book Description Dym, Little and Orwin's successful client-driven, team-based approach to engineering design gets students actively involved with conceptual design methods and project management tools.
