Designed for interest in Engineering Drawing, Engineering Graphics, and Computer-Aided Drawing (CAD). Based on a 3-D approach to design, this piece emphasizes how modeling is inherently different from 2-D CAD. Beginning with a brief introduction to the design process in the context of concurrent engineering, this book proceeds to cover topics such as the Pro/ENGINEER work environment, file management, sketching, revolution, applying and modeling 3-D constraints, features and feature-based modeling, lofting, sweeping, and extracting data from 3-D models. FEATURES/BENEFITS bull; bull;Each chapter includes a set of qGuided Toursq that walk users through features of Pro/ENGINEER. bull; bull;Encourages the reader qto learn by doing.q bull;Chapters conclude with an ample number of drawing problems. bull;Help reinforce topics from the chapter. Solid Modeling with Pro/ENGINEER can be used on its own, or as a supplementary text to 3-D Visualization for Engineering Graphics, or any other Prentice Hall Graphics book.Creating an Engineering Drawing Three-dimensional computer tools have revolutionized the engineering design ... model, you first specify the size of the paper on which you wish to create the drawing. In the English system of units, there are five standard drawing sizes: A (8.5aquot; X 1 1aquot;), B (11aquot; X 17aquot;), C (17aquot; X 22aquot;), D (22aquot; X ... Engineering drawings typically contain one or more orthographic views of an object and may also contain an isometric or trimetric pictorial for additional clarity.
