Introduction to Graphics Communications for Engineers – Gary R. Bertoline – 4th Edition


Introduction to for , Fourth Edition, is a concise introductory drawing text, intended for use in technical drawing or courses at two- and four-year schools or other technology programs.

Powerful and CAD are of little use to engineers who do not fully understand the fundamentals of graphics principles and 3-D strategies, or do not possess a level of visualization ability. Because of this, Bertoline concentrates on the concepts and skills necessary to sketch and create 2-D drawings and 3-D CAD models.

A strong emphasis on design in industry is found throughout, reinforcing the real and practical ways that technical graphics skills are used by engineers.
