The user-friendly product known as Engineering Drawing and Design combines engineering graphics and drawing in a single package. The use of the computer has fundamentally altered the process by which drawings and components are manufactured, which is true of technical drafting as it is of all other technological fields. This text is printed in four colors and covers the most recent information that is available about technical topics such as graphic communication, computer-aided design (CAD), functional drafting, material positioning, numerical control, electronic drafting, and metrication. It does so in a way that is valuable to both the instructor and the student. The writers compile, condense, and transform complicated drafting standards and procedures into instructional pieces that may be understood by the reader.
