Overview

With 40 fast-paced units of instruction, Blueprint Reading for Machine Trades, 2E is our most complete guide to learning how to interpret industrial prints. Meeting the needs of a two-semester course sequence, coverage spans from an introduction to the alphabet of lines and orthographic projection to application of dimensions and tolerances and more! Modern industry specifications, including current ANSI standards, are also discussed as readers move from basic concepts to completion of increasingly difficult print interpretation assignments.
