Book Preface

For many decades, Technical Drawing with Engineering Graphics has been recognized as an authority on the theories and techniques of graphics communication. Generations of instructors and students have used and retained this book as a professional reference. The long-standing success of Technical Drawing with Engineering Graphics can be attributed to its clear and engaging explanation of principles, and to its drawings, which are unsurpassed in detail and accuracy.

Although not a departure from its original authoritative nature and hallmark features, the book is thoroughly revised and updated to the latest technologies and practices in the field. With the addition of topics related to the role of the 3D CAD database in design and documentation, this fifteenth edition of Technical Drawing with Engineering Graphics will prepare students to enter the marketplace of the twenty-first century and continue to serve as a lasting reference.

Shawna Lockhart, author of the fourteenth edition, first used Giesecke’s Technical Drawing when teaching engineering graphics at Montana State University. Throughout her 15years as an award-winning professor, she selected this text because, in her words, “It was the most thorough and well-presented text with the best graphic references and exercises on the market.”

The quality of the illustrations and drawing examples was established by the original author, Frederick E. Giesecke, who created the majority of the illustrations in the first edition of Technical Drawing, published in 1933.

Giesecke, founder of the first formal architectural education program in Texas at what is today Texas A&M University, has been described as “a wunderkind of the first magnitude.” He joined the A&M faculty at the age of 17, after graduating in 1886 with a B.S. in Mechanical Engineering, and by the age of 19, was appointed head of A&M’s Department of Mechanical Drawing.

Having studied architectural drawing and design at Cornell University and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Giesecke also served as head of the Department of Architecture and the official college architect at Texas A&M, designing many campus buildings that are still standing today. A long-time admirer of Giesecke’s legacy, Lockhart was

honored to carry on the commitment to clear, engaging, thorough, and well-organized presentation that began with the original author.

Lockhart is known as an early adopter and authority on CAD technologies. She is an instructor noted for outstanding dedication to students and for encouraging a broad spectrum of individuals, particularly women and minorities, to follow careers in engineering-related fields. Lockhart now works fulltime to ensure that the Giesecke graphics series continually applies to an evolving variety of technical disciplines.


The fifteenth edition of Technical Drawing with Engineering Graphics continues its long history as an introduction to technical drawing and an easy-to-use reference for techniques and practices. Reviewers advised us on how to make Technical Drawing with Engineering Graphics a superb guide and resource for today’s students. New content includes:

• Expanded coverage of 3D design and modeling techniques
• Updated introduction that illustrates the design documentation process with an industry case study
• Additional sketching content, including sketching assemblies and case study on sketching for ideation
• New coverage of geometry useful for 3D modeling
• All new chapter on modeling tools and techniques
• More examples of plastic and sheet metal parts
• Updated coverage of modeling for manufacture with all new sections on using the model for simulation and analysis
• Web chapters available for axonometric projection and perspective drawing
