I have recently taken over the Drafting Department and have been thinking a lot about how relevant a lot of classic descriptive geometry is anymore. Don't get me wrong I feel that the basics of projection, auxiliary views, developments, & Vectors are Important. But how much of it is enough and how much is overkill? I haven't seen a good textbook in a long time, and the one we currently use is pretty bad. I have ordered some others from Delmar but with list prices approaching $200, and low reviews, I don't know. I have also spoken with several friend that graduated in various engineering fields (mostly Civil) in the past 5 years (BS & MS), and none of them remember anything about CAD/Drafting. In 10+ years of civil drafting, and mechanical design I didn't use most of what I learned (except developments). What do you think should be included in a modern descriptive geometry class? All input would be helpful, I'm currently doing a Program Review.
