Blueprint Reading for the Construction Trades
2nd Edition

Micro-Press.com  © 2005

Includes fold-out commercial and residential drawing sets.
ISBN-13 978-0-9688353-6-4


Construction tradespersons need to understand and apply the information given on blueprints with a minimum of error and a maximum of speed. To do so they must be able to mentally visualize, in three dimensions, the orthographic information presented on those blueprints. In addition to tradespersons, Blueprint Reading for the Construction Trades, 2nd Edition.

Blueprint Reading for the Construction Trades, 2nd Edition is written to help develop these important visualization skills and takes the reader through basic sketching exercises, reading scale rules, understanding orthographic drawings, and visualizing in three-dimensions through isometric, oblique, and perspective drawings. A fold-out commercial drawing set teaches the importance of construction sections. Finally, readers are guided through a fold-out drawing set of a solar residence to practice their visualization skills by understanding the shape, size, dimensions, and details of the residence. A twenty question test evaluates the reader's ability to fully visualize the building's details.

Blueprint Reading for the Construction Trades provides the following:

  • A "hands-on" approach to developing visualization skills.
  • Simple, easily understood instruction with many illustrations.
  • Extensive orthographic and isometric exercises, the basis of blueprint reading.
  • Detailed instruction on reading English and metric scale rules.
  • Solutions are provided for all exercises and tests.
  • Fold-out commercial and residential drawings sets bound into the book.
