To fully understand the information found on real-world manufacturing and mechanical engineering drawings, one must consider important information about the processes represented, the dimensional and geometric tolerances specified, and the assembly requirements for those drawings. This enhanced edition takes a practical approach to print reading, with fundamental through advanced coverage that demonstrates industry standards essential for pursuing careers in the 21st century. Readers will learn step-by-step how to interpret actual industry prints while building the knowledge and skills that will allow them to read complete sets of working drawings. Realistic examples, illustrations, related tests, and print reading problems are based on real world engineering prints that comply with ANSI, ASME, AWS, and other related standards.
