*We are the Amazon Partner and students can purchase the books shown on this page. We are also providing an authentic solution manual, formulated by our SMEs, for the same.This book focuses on strengthening 3D visualization skills through sketching exercises. It does not make reference to any particular computer-aided design software package. Points emphasized: 1. Shape representation and problem solving using freehand sketching. Assignments can be completed outside class. 2. Surface Analysis -- A powerful approach to teaching visualization. 3. Establishes a process for solving problems. Students can solve features of objects before they can see the shapes. 4. Challenging problems. Worksheet layouts allow faster progress. 5. Students learn how to think about shapes in three dimensions. 6. Students can prove every line on a drawing. There is no question whether the answer is correct or not. Table of Contents 1.
