Manual of Engineering Drawing: British and International Standards, Fifth Edition, chronicles ISO and British Standards in engineering drawings, providing many examples that will help readers understand how to translate engineering specifications into a visual medium. The book includes 6 introductory chapters which provide foundational theory and contextual information regarding the broader context of engineering drawing and design. The concepts enclosed will help readers gain the most out of their drawing skills. As the standards referred to in this book change every few years, this new edition presents an important update.

  • Covers all of the BSI and ISO standards that govern the drafting of technical product specification and standards
  • Includes new chapters on design for additive manufacturing and computer-aided design
  • Provides worked examples that will help readers understand how the concepts in the book are applied in practice
