## Description

Engineering Drawing: From the Beginning, Volume 1 discusses the basic concepts in engineering drawing. The book illustrates the drawings presented in both first angle (English) projection and third angle (American) projection. The opening chapter discusses the equipment utilized in engineering drawing, and then proceeds to discussing the concepts and methods in engineering drawing. The coverage of the text includes geometrical constructions, projection, and dimensioning. The book will be of great interest to anyone who wants to get acquainted with the basics of engineering drawing.
