      Hello there,

      I am a recent mechanical engineering graduate and currently working as a design engineer in a metal fabricating company. I would like to understand more about engineering drawings and am wondering if someone could recommend me a good engineering drawing book for a beginer like me.

      Regards

      Nothing beats a well done true engineering drawing. Some people get it, some dont. Problem today is that with 3d, pretty iso views and exploded assemblies are being passed off as engineering drawings. I tell the CAD group here, please provide me with full size section views. I typically get a blank stare, followed by a screen capture section thru the 3d model.... no.... really.....

      This is a good book that I use in my Basic Drafting class. It comes with a CD of another book that has more info that the printed workbook. I have my lectures for this class posted on youtube. I have also posted videos from my descriptive geometry class here.
