Features

For introductory blueprint reading courses intended for students in manufacturing trades, including machine operators, general machinists, and tool and die machinists.

 

This practical workbook systematically teaches the crucial skills that manufacturing trades students need to accurately read and correctly interpret blueprints. Students master each new concept through immediate hands-on problem-solving. No prior blueprint reading knowledge is required, and no materials are required beyond a pencil and eraser. The text begins with the absolute basics, then progresses to visualization, and finally, to multiview drawings. Diverse questions are provided to stimulate interest, including short answer, multiple choice, true/false, and sketching. The book has proven itself in both classroom and industrial settings, and has also been widely used for self-teaching. This edition reflects the latest industry standards, including ASME Y14.5-2009 and CAN3-B78.1-M83.

 

Hallmark Features

 

Workbook format–offering diverse short answer, multiple choice, true/false, and sketching question formats, and including space for students to answer and solve problems

  • Encourages more active learning and greater retention 

Incremental learning approach– introduces one concept at a time, and follows new material with immediate assignments that apply it

  • Helps students quickly absorb new concepts by using them in practice 

Strong coverage of geometric dimensioning and tolerancing–including many illustrations and examples reflecting the latest standards

  • Thoroughly prepares students to read prints that require an understanding of dimensioning and tolerancing

Mathematical problems introduced and thoroughly explained–helping students master more complex blueprint reading tasks

  • Helps students overcome math obstacles to the blueprint reading process
  • Enables students to appreciate the role of math in the shop process 

Many optional math exercises–offering additional practice and assignments

  • Gives instructors the option to provide more math practice if they wish 

Math appendix–brings together important math concepts, including formulas for right angle trigonometry, measurement of dovetails, measurement of vees, determining chords, and measurement over pins

  • Provides convenient, simple math review for students who need it
  • Offers reference material students can rely upon in the shop 

Uses both customary US units and metric SI units–preparing students to work in shop environments using either or both measurement systems

  • Gives students comfort and practice with both leading measurement systems 

Dictionary of terms–beginning with very basic vocabulary and incrementally introducing very advanced and complex terms

  • Ensures that specialized jargon is never an obstacle to understanding 

95% of drawings in CAD–replacing nearly all hand-drawn figures

  • Teaches through clean, modern drawings representative of those that most students will work with
