The most widely-used descriptive geometry text - featuring a simplified organization that introduces principles in relatively short units in order of need and of difficulty. A wide variety of engineering applications, step-by-step solution illustrations, and abstract, laboratory, practical, and computer problems/projects (with solutions) highlight each chapter.

  • Presents thefundamentals of descriptive geometry in a series of small, pedagogically sound units to complement typical daily in-class sessions, uses a simplified organization that divides content into relatively short, homogeneous chapters and that follows the organization of the authors Descriptive Geometry Worksheets, Series A and B, in which new principles are introduced in order of need as well as of difficulty.
  • Provides step-by-step solution illustrations to make the construction easy to follow, and provides solutions in pictorial form whenever possible.
  • Focuses on applications that illuminate fundamentals and introduce new engineering experiences.
  • Gives all quantitative information in metric units.
  • Contains an entire chapter of con
