To be a successful welder or fabricator, it is crucial to be able to build something correctly from reading the design requirements shown on a drawing. Print Reading for Welding and Fabrication, 2/e, continues to provide a logical, easy-to-understand path for students learning to read and interpret drawings that are typically found in the industry. Each chapter clearly presents objectives and key terms, offers practical exercises, and concludes with a chapter containing easy-to-follow explanations of the mathematics needed to properly decipher prints. Throughout, the author emphasizes the codes, standards, and industrial practices that students will be most likely to encounter – including concepts and terminology from the American Welding Society (AWS) and The Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME).
