Foundation Principles of Engineering Drawings Design & Fabrication | Francis Mulaa
This course book and accompanying exercise books have been prepared with the primary aim of alleviating the problems encountered in the teaching of geometric and Engineering Drawing courses and in minimizing discrepancies prevailing among the different teaching and training institutions. It can also be used as a reference material for professional disciplines. focus is on collectively providing an enabling environment that facilitates the end user of this book to appreciate the need for geometric and technical drawings, and overall, understand the designing process as a whole continuum (manufacturing, fabrication, assembly, construction, building, or any product that is subjected to any other type of conversion process). The book explains the concept of graphic communication, their type and their role in developing logic and the mind of an adolescent. Equip the candidates with the skill that enables them to convert visual linear (1-D), and pictorial (2-D) drawings to orthographic (3-D) drawings and vice versa. Familiarize the candidates with the purpose, procedures, materials and conventional symbols utilized to make sketch maps. Ideas & Suggestions about cover design: A set of geometric instruments e.g a pair of dividers in colour, two or so pencils in different colours and illustration geometic and engineering graphics taken from within the text book.
