- Expert interpretation of the rules and conventions provided by authoritative authors who regularly lead and contribute to BSI and ISO committees on product standards
- Combines the latest technical information with clear, readable explanations, numerous diagrams and traditional geometrical construction techniques
- Includes new material on patents, copyrights and intellectual property, design for manufacture and end-of-life, and surface finishing considerations
Now in its 4th edition, Manual of Engineering Drawing is a long-established guide for practicing and student engineers to producing engineering drawings and annotated 3D models that comply with the latest BSI and ISO standards of technical product specifications and documentation.
This new edition has been updated in line with recent standard revisions and amendments, including the requirements of BS8888 2011 and related ISO standards. Ideal for international use, it includes a guide to the fundamental differences between the relevant ISO and ASME standards, as well as new information on legal aspects such as patents and copyright, and end-of-life design considerations.
Equally applicable to CAD and manual drawing, the book includes the latest developments in 3D annotation and the specification of surface texture. Its broad scope also encompasses topics such as orthographic and pictorial projections, dimensional, geometrical and surface tolerancing, and the duality principle, along with numerous examples of electrical and hydraulic diagrams with symbols and applications of cams, bearings, welding and adhesives.
Seen by many as an essential design reference, Manual of Engineering Drawing is an ideal companion for students studying vocational courses in technical product specification, undergraduates studying engineering or product design, and professional engineers beginning a career in design.
