to be non-traditional, but the topic does seem to qualify as "Applying
technology toward human needs" (from the FAQ). Please forgive me if
this post is off-topic.
I've been retasked from tech writing for a special project, creating
dimensional drawings for a metal fab shop. I have Corel Draw X3 and
Corel Draw 9 available to me, but have done no drafting since pencil/
compass/rule in junior high school shop class.
Not that I mind; I find the idea fascinating. However, I need a good
primer on the subject.
May I ask the assembled brain trust to advise on good books which
might fulfill this need, something like MECHANICAL DRAFTING FOR
DUMMIES or DIMENSIONAL TECHNICAL DRAWING FOR DUMMIES?
