A thoroughly contemporary approach to teaching essential engineering graphics skills has made Fundamentals of Solid Modeling and Graphics Communication the leading textbook in introductory engineering graphics courses. The seventh edition continues to integrate design concepts and the use of 3D CAD modeling into its outstanding coverage of the basic visualization and sketching techniques that enable students to create and communicate graphic ideas effectively. The primary goal of this text is to help the engineering and technology student learn the techniques and standard practices of technical graphics, so that design ideas can be adequately communicated and produced. As in past editions, the authors have included many examples of how graphics communication pertains to "real-world" engineering design, including current industry practices and breakthroughs.
