Welcome to the Linn-Benton Welding Department’s First edition to blueprint reading.
Being able to read and understand, as well as sketch, or even draw a blueprint, is important to the making of accurate parts and complete fabrications.
Blueprints are tools that communicate what needs to be built or made, what materials are needed and what specifications are required. They insure that a design is made with complete accuracy what meets the needs of the customer.
This book is an updated version of the originally authored publication by the Department of Engineering and Drafting Technology Department at Linn-Benton Community College, in Albany Oregon.
