A thoroughly contemporary approach to teaching essential engineering graphics skills has made Fundamentals of Graphics Communication the leading textbook in introductory engineering graphics courses. The sixth edition continues to integrate design concepts and the use of CAD into its outstanding coverage of the basic visualization and sketching techniques that enable students to create and communicate graphic ideas effectively. 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. A website provides additional resources such as an image library, animations, and quizzes.

Bertoline's text covers the latest CAD tools available to engineering and technology students. As powerful as today's computers and CAD software have become, they are of little use to engineers and technologists who do not fully understand the fundamental graphics principles and 3-D modeling strategies. The new edition covers the fundamentals while emphasizing the important concepts: visualization, 3D modeling real-world design, problem solving and teamwork

Introduction to Graphics Communication for Engineers is a short introductory technical drawing text intended for use in technical drawing or drafting courses at two and four year schools or other technology programs. Powerful computers and CAD software are of little use to engineers who do not fully understand the fundamentals of graphics communication principles and 3-D modeling 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 in this text. New to the third edition are "Design in Industry Boxes" that cover an aspect of design as practiced in industry. Quotes and interesting stories from practicing engineers make the boxes motivating and informative for students. Also new are practice sketching problems included throughout each chapter, which allow students a chance to practice what they are learning. This book is part of the B.E.S.T. (Basic Engineering Series and Tools), which consists of modularized textbooks offering virtually every topic and specialty likely to be of interest to engineers.

The Graphics Drawing Workbook is meant to be used with either Technical Graphics Communications 2nd Edition or Fundamentals of Graphics Communications 2nd Edition. However the workbook can be used with any good reference text including Graphics communication for engineers by this author.. . There are workbook problems for every major topic normally taught in an engineering or technical drawing course. Most of the problems can be drawn with instruments or sketched. a special emphasis has been put on freehand sketching in this workbook in response to the increased use of CAD in many technical drawing courses. It is expected that the instructor will supplement these problems with others from the text to fully reinforce technical drawing topics.

Engineering & Computer Graphics Workbook Using SolidWorks 2014 is an exercise-based workbook that uses step-by-step tutorials to cover the fundamentals of SolidWorks 2014. The intended audience is college undergraduate engineering majors, but it could also be used in pre-college introductory engineering courses or by self learners. The text follows an educational paradigm that was researched and developed by the authors over many years. The paradigm is based on the concurrent engineering approach to engineering design in which the 3-D solid model data serves as the central hub for all aspects of the design process. The workbook systematically instructs the students to develop 3-D models using the rich tools afforded in SolidWorks. The exercises then proceed to instruct the students on applications of the solid model to design analysis using finite elements, to assembly modeling and checking, to kinematic simulation, to rapid prototyping, and finally to projecting an engineering drawing. The workbook is ideally suited for courses in which a reverse engineering design project is assigned. This book contains clear and easy to understand instructions that enable the students to robustly learn the main features of SolidWorks, with little or no instructor input.
