ABOUT THIS BOOK We have designedModern Graphics Communicationto present succinctly the practices and techniques of sketching, visualization, design and CAD that are important to today's graphics curriculum. Based on the long standing authoritative text on the subject, Giesecke'sTechnical Drawing,this text preserves many of the time tested graphics techniques that remain fundamental to the class, and were so clearly explained in Giesecke's original volume. However, we have rewritten this book to provide a shorter, more lively presentation that covers current course trends, and includes pedagogy appropriate for the modern student. The topics of sketching and visualization skills are this book's primary focus, and provide a solid conceptual basis for the CAD instruction most graphics students receive. We have employed a new format that utilizes integrated on-the-page activities to help students visualize and retain key concepts, unifying art and text into powerful instructional tools easily digested by today's hurried students. Students who completeModern Graphics Communicationwill leave with a full repertoire of graphical skills they will find invaluable both in education and industry. KEY ELEMENTS We have designed the third edition of this text based upon the input of first and second editions users and reviewers. Elements include: Increased coverage of Solid Modeling and consolidation of coverage into chapter 2. New screen captures and illustrations reflecting new graphics technologies. --New Four-Color Insert--This insert presents key figures from the text in a four-color format, including key, classic "Giesecke" instructional figures. Updated to conform to newly published standards for ASME Y14.6-2001 (Screw Thread Representation), ASME Y14.100-2000 (Engineering Drawing Practices), ASME Y14.24-1999 (Types and Applications of Engineering Drawings), ASME Y 14.38-1999 (Abbreviations and Acronyms), and ASME Y14.6-2001 (Screw Thread Representation). --Increased Coverage of the Design Process in Chapter 1--Each chapter also features several student design projects. Additional problemsadded to almost every chapter. Additional Web Links--More web links have been added and web finks now appear in bold type so they stand out clearly Sketching Worksheets--A selection of worksheets is included at the end of the book and focus more on sketching techniques. Thoroughly updated material on manufacturing and geometric tolerancing.--We are especially thankful to Serope Kalpakjian for help with these sections. Updated Student Animations--Animations are located at the Website www.prenhall.com/giesecke . Concepts with accompanying animations are marked with the WWW icon. Continued Emphasis on Sketching, Visualization, Design, and CAD--Instead of extensive material on using instruments, this text highlights a sketching approach to graphics. Exceptional Student Pedagogy--This text continues to feature student pedagogy designed to integrate art and text into self-contained teaching units. These features include: STEP BY STEP--These boxes explain essential techniques and processes in detail, using an easy-to-read, visual format. They are vital learning tools that should be given equal importance with the body of the text. PRACTICAL TIP--These boxes contain useful tips for sketching techniques or CAD procedures. HANDS-ON--This feature provides an opportunity for the student to practice a technique s/he just learned by trying a quick and easy activity right on the page. These are great confidence builders.
