Fundamentals of Technical Graphics concentrates on the main concepts and principles of technical graphics. The book is divided into two volumes: volume one contains chapters one to five, whereas volume two comprises of chapters six to ten. Volume one covers the topics of drafting guidelines, free hand sketching, computer design drafting (CDD) systems, geometric and shape construction, and standard multiview drawing creation. Volume two treats the topics of auxiliary views, section views, basic dimensioning, isometric drawings, and working drawings. The appendices provide introductory discussions about screw fasteners, general and geometric tolerancing, and surface quality and symbols.

The book is written with current drafting standards of American National Standards Institute/American Society for Mechanical Engineers (ANSI/ASME) in mind. The style is plain and discussions are straight to the point. Its principle goal is meeting the needs of first and second-year students in engineering, engineering technology, design technology, and related disciplines.
