Book Description

Feb. 7 2008 1401842518 978-1401842512 1
A new book for a new generation of engineering professionals, Visualization, Modeling, and Graphics for Engineering, Introduction was written from the ground up to take a brand-new approach to graphic communication within the context of engineering design and creativity. With a blend of modern and traditional topics, this text recognizes how computer modeling techniques have changed the engineering design process. From this new perspective, the text is able to focus on the evolved design process, including the critical phases of creative thinking, product ideation, and advanced analysis techniques. Focusing on design and design communication rather than drafting techniques and standards, it goes beyond the "what" to explain the "why" of engineering graphics.

3.0 out of 5 stars just an fyi Aug. 4 2011
By matt - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Please be aware that this version (An Introduction to...) only includes the first 6 chapters of the full book by the same name. Unless you are a complete newb to drafting/engineering drawings, then the first 5 chapters are not so useful. Ch 6 begins solid modeling and is where the book really starts.
4.0 out of 5 stars Good overall introduction to design workflow process Oct. 3 2012

Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book is a good introduction to the design workflow process. The author did well to simplify what goes into the general ambiguous design process. Will serve as basic guide to both engineers and project personnel.
2.0 out of 5 stars Don't bother Aug. 10 2012
By Kendal - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The author is very good and has good graphics and illustrations, but the introduction book is basically worthless. Don't waist your time with just the introduction. Just get the whole book, because it also has the same exact chapters as this one. I had to buy both books, because this one didn't have anything important, so i felt really jipped. I think it is the publishers fault for this trying to cheat people out of more money, but the author did a really good job, if you get the real book.
