Before we go any further: Are you buying from outside Australia? We would love to ship this book to you BUT you must be studying at an Australian institution to buy this title from us at this price. Why? Because when we process your order we are required to provide to our supplier a confirmation of your student name, student ID and the institution. You really need it? We CAN still sell to overseas students however we need to advise you of the (unfortunately) higher price after you place your order. You can then decide whether you'd still like to proceed or cancel the order. That's just how it is. (sigh...) And of course, we wish you all the best with your studies : )

For more than 25 years, students have relied on this trusted text for easy-to-read, comprehensive drafting and design instruction that complies with the latest ANSI and ASME industry standards for mechanical drafting. The Sixth Edition of ENGINEERING DRAWING AND DESIGN continues this tradition of excellence with a multitude of real, high-quality industry drawings and more than 1,000 drafting, design, and practical application problems'including many new to the current edition. The text showcases actual product designs in all phases, from concept through manufacturing, marketing, and distribution. In addition, the engineering design process now features new material related to production practices that eliminate waste in all phases, and the authors describe practices to improve process output quality by using quality management methods to identify the causes of defects, remove them, and minimize manufacturing variables.
