Architectural Drafting and Design
(ISBN-10: 1401867154 | ISBN-13: 9781401867157)
Written to meet the most recent editions of IRC and IBC, this exceptional, full-color fifth edition is designed for beginning, intermediate, and advanced architectural drafters and CAD operators alike. Architectural Drafting and Design, 5E features the basics of residential design through the various types of projects that a designer or architect would likely complete during the actual design process. Coverage begins with an introduction to architectural styles that have dominated the field over the last four centuries, followed by basic design components related to the site and structure. A hallmark of this best-seller is its step-by-step instructions for the design and layout of each type of drawing associated with a complete set of architectural plans, with projects that can be completed using either CAD or manual drawing methods. Readers will come away with the knowledge needed to complete each of the drawings required by most municipalities to obtain a building permit for a single-family residence. Comprehensive coverage also explores the field of commercial drafting, as well as basic materials used for construction, common construction methods, and drawings typically associated with commercial construction.
Civil Drafting for the Engineering Technician
(ISBN-10: 1418009520 | ISBN-13: 9781418009526)
A real life civil design project for site development is recreated through each chapter in this book to prepare readers for what to expect when working in the field. Coverage begins by introducing the basic setups and standards that anyone beginning a civil design CAD project should know, then moves on to the fundamental concepts common to most civil engineering projects such as grading, contours, and surveying. Readers will then explore the process of creating different types of drawings typically necessary for civil design and see how changing parts of a design can affect the entire project process. The book concludes with methods for estimating quantities for the different types of materials and work that will likely be encountered in an actual drafting assignment.
