The Manual of Engineering Drawing has long been recognised as the student and practising engineer's guide to producing engineering drawings that comply with ISO and British Standards.

This new edition has been brought fully in line with the requirements of the new British Standard BS8888: 2002. As this standard is derived from ISO standards, this book is also ideal for an international readership. Equally applicable to any CAD application or manual drawing, the new edition will help engineers, lecturers and students with the transition to the new standards.

Written by a member of the ISO committee and a former college lecturer, Manual of Engineering Drawing combines up-to-the-minute technical accuracy with clear, readable explanations and numerous diagrams. This approach makes this an ideal student text for vocational courses in engineering drawing and undergraduates studying engineering design / product design.

The comprehensive scope of the new edition encompasses topics such as orthographic and pictorial projections, dimensional, geometrical and surface texture tolerancing, along with numerous examples of electrical and hydraulic diagrams with symbols, and applications of cams, bearings, gears, welding and adhesives.
