This book is designed as an introductory course in Engineering Drawing with complete coverage of topics as per the requirements of new AICTE syllabus. It aims to create awareness of the subject and develop the skills needed for documenting designs using drawings. The book covers the basic concepts and conventions of engineering drawing, introduces free-hand sketching and highlights the usage of CAD software (including AutoCAD 2017 and Solid Edge) for drafting. It extends the basics to drawing orthographic projections of points, lines, planes and solids as per prevalent BIS convention. It further covers techniques for orthographic projections of sections of solids, intersecting solids and development of surfaces.
