Engineering Drawing, Tape 1 (5 Parts)

Synopsis
The ability to read and produce engineering drawings is an esential part of a technical education. Learning to draw involved two distinct activities: intellectual understanding and physical skills, and the videos help in both areas. Showing both the object and the drawing illustrates the relationship between them, and this leads rapidly to an understanding of projections, symbols and conventions. Also shows how drawing instruments are handled.
