Technical Drawing for Stage Design explains the importance of drawing in the design process, revealing how the initial two-dimensional drawing is a crucial building block in creating the scale model that in turn will develop into the stage set - that will transport the audience into another world. Topics covered include: introducing the tools and equipment used by the designer; developing confidence in freehand sketching; drawing to aid the creative thought process, communicate design ideas and help with the construction process; scenic elements and the related terminology; the architecture of the theatre - and how to draw it. Aimed at drama students and teachers, technical drawing students, amateur dramatics groups and theatre workshop organisers, Technical Drawing for Stage Design offers an attractive and practical manual on the subject. Well illustrated with approximately 120 black and white images.

In this newly revised second edition, veteran stage designers and technical directors Dennis Dorn and Mark Shanda introduce industry-standard drafting and designing practices with step-by-step discussions, illustrations, worksheets, and problems to help students develop and refine drafting and other related skills needed for entertainment set production work. By incorporating the foundational principles of both hand- and computer-drafting approaches throughout the entire book, the authors illustrate how to create clear and detailed drawings that advance the production process. Early chapters focus on the basics of geometric constructions, orthographic techniques, soft-line sketching applications, lettering, and dimensioning. Later chapters discuss real-life applications of production drawing and ancillary skills such as time and material estimation and shop-drawing nomenclature. Two chapters detail a series of design and shop drawings required to mount a specific design project, providing a guided path through both phases of the design/construction process. Most chapters conclude with one or more worksheets or problems that provide readers with an opportunity to test their understanding of the material presented. The authors' discussion of universal CAD principles throughout the manuscript provides a valuable foundation that can be used in any computer-based design, regardless of the software. Dorn and Shanda treat the computer as another drawing tool, like the pencil or T-square, but one that can help a knowledgeable drafter potentially increase personal productivity and accuracy when compared to traditional hand-drafting techniques. Drafting for the Theatre, second edition assembles in one book all the principal types of drawings, techniques, and conventional wisdom necessary for the production of scenic drafting, design, and shop drawings. It is richly illustrated with numerous production examples and is fully indexed to assist students and technicians in finding important information. It is structured to support a college-level course in drafting, but will also serve as a handy reference for the working theatre professional.

CIM Handbook: The Opportunities for Rationalisation Opened Up by the Acquisition and Integration of Computer Automation aims to help everyone responsible for structuring computer integrated manufacturing (CIM) concepts and for procuring and selecting CIM components, to find the solutions which meet their requirements in an optimal way, as well as having scope for future development. The significance of the most important individual CIM packages, their function, the increase in efficiency to be obtained by their implementation and the prerequisites for their integration in a total CIM concept will all be clearly set out in this book. The book begins with a discussion of CIM and the increasing competition faced by companies in both domestic and international markets. This is followed by separate chapters on the most important CIM packages; the basic prerequisites of CIM, namely local networks and databases; the implementation of CIM projects; and CIM concepts for the middle-order companies. The final chapter describes the successful implementation of an automated assembly provisioning system in the car industry.
