AUTHORS: Goetsch, David L. - ©2004
For nearly twenty years, David Goetsch has provided a one-of-a-kind information resource with his book, Structural Drafting. Now, for a broader audience, he has developed a new and complete introduction to structural drafting with related coverage of civil and piping drafting that has complementary software. Structural, Civil and Pipe Drafting for CAD Technicians is organized into seven sections. The first section of the book supplies readers with an overview of structural drafting, from the organizational structure of the typical department through product fabrication and shipping. Later sections invite readers to hone in on the specifics of structural steel, pre-cast concrete, poured-in-place concrete, and structural wood drafting. Section six includes chapters on pre-fab metal buildings, civil engineering drafting, and process piping to ensure that readers gain all of the expertise they need to become highly competent, professional drafters.
