I-DEAS - Computer-Aided Drawing-AutoCAD/Engineering Graphics/Drafting
Designed for undergraduate courses in Engineering Drawing,
Engineering Graphics, and Computer-Aided Drawing (CAD).
Based on a 3-D approach to design, this text emphasizes how
modeling is inherently different from 2-D CAD. Beginning with a brief
introduction to the design process in the context of concurrent engineering,
this text proceeds to cover topics such as the I-DEAS work environment,
file management, sketching, revolution, applying and modeling 3-D
constraints, features and feature-based modeling, lofting, sweeping,
and extracting data from 3-D models.
Each chapter includes a set of Guided Tours
that walk students through features of I-DEAS.
Chapters conclude with an ample number of drawing problems.
- Encourages students to learn by doing.
Solid Modeling with I-DEAS can be used on its own,
or as a supplementary text to 3-D Visualization for Engineering
Graphics, or any other Prentice Hall Graphics book.
