Review of first edition: ...presents a solid foundation in the basics of industrial drafting and design. (Computer-Aided Engineering) Review of second edition: The present format is very simple and logically arranged. Such has not been the case with most pipe drafting books of the past. (Hubert E. Belisle, Louisiana State University) ...this book provides step-by-step instructions to walk pipe designers and drafters, as well as students in engineering design graphics and engineering technology, through the creating of piping arrangement and isometric drawings using symbols for fittings, flanges, valves and mechanical equipment. Over 350 illustrations and photographs provide examples and visual instructions. Drawing are systematically arranged, beginning with the layout of the structural foundations of a facility, through to the development of a 3D model. Advanced chapters discuss the customization of AutoCAD and AutoLISP, and detail the use of third-party software to create 3D models from which elevation, section and isometric drawings are extracted, including bills of material. -Petroleum Review, August 2002
