Books for Drafters?

Pablo Ferral

Recommended Posts

I recently had the following question posed to me on my Blog:


‘Hi are you able to advice me on a course book that would give me all the correct information to produce a high standard joinery drawing that would then be sent off for approval’


You can read my answer here:

Must have CAD books for Drafters http://cadso.co/GYf5MP


I thought it would be interesting to open this question up. What books have you read, which books to you turn to when you get stuck? Do you even read books ant more - do you prefer videos or the internet?

I would recommend this book for anyone who wants to become a CAD drafter.


Technical Graphics Communication by Bertoline & Webe (McGraw-Hill)


And this one although it was originally written for manual drafting. Many of the topics covered are still pertinent today.


Basic Technical Drawing, Cecil Spencer


I would be remiss by not including this old school book too.


Engineering Drawing by Thomas E. French
