Design – Product Design & ArchitectureBasic Drafting Skills - Drafting Instruments“A design is as good as it’s instruments.”
  • A engineering drawing is a highly stylized graphic representation of an idea. The idea might be of something that we can see such a real or virtual object, space or environment.
  • In some cases, such as an electronic schematic diagram for example, the drawing will bear no visual resemblance to the physical object that will be built from the information it provides.

  • Drawing board/table
  • Drawing Surface
  • Available in a variety of styles and sizes. Most are adjustable up and down, and can tilt to almost any angle from vertical 90o to horizontal
  • The drawing surface must be clean, flat, smooth, and large enough to accommodate the drawing and some drafting equipment.
  • If a T-square is to be used, at least one edge on the board must be absolutely true.
  • Most quality boards have a metal edge to ensure against warping and to hold the T-square securely
  • Drawing Table with Drafting Machine
  • Drafting Equipment
  • Drawing Horizontal lines
  • T-square
  • Parallel edge
  • Drafting Machine
  • Arm/elbow type
  • Track type
  • T-Square
  • It provides a parallel straight edge for the beginning drawing drafter.
  • It is composed of two parts: the head and the blade. The two parts are fastened together at an exact right angle.
  • The blade must be straight and free of any necks and imperfections.
  • T-Square (cont’d)
  • Used to draw horizontal lines on the drawing sheet.
  • Used to draw vertical lines and slanted lines with the help of additional equipment basically 45o and 60o triangles.
  • Draw lines only against the upper edge of the blade. Make sure the head is held against the left edge of the drawing board to guarantee parallel lines.
  • Use a T-square to align the drawing paper to the drawing board, and to draw parallel horizontal lines on the paper.
  • Parallel Straightedge
  • A parallel straightedge is a laminated maple blade with transparent plastic edges similar to those on the T-square. Its primary purpose is the same as the T-square.
  • The parallel straightedge uses a system of cords and pulleys so that it is supported at both ends by a cord tacked to the drawing board.
  • You can move the straightedge up or down the board with pressure at any point along its length and maintain parallel motion automatically.
  • Drafting MachineDrafting Equipment - Triangles
  • 45° Triangle
  • Draw vertical lines and lines @ 45°
  • 30° x 60° Triangle
  • Draw vertical lines and lines @ 30° and 60°
  • Adjustable Triangle
  • Draw lines @ 0° to 90°

  • Drafting Equipment
  • Pivot Compass
  • used mainly to draw circles and circular curves of relatively short radius .
  • Bow Compass
  • The conical is the needlepoint can allow it to be used as a divider
  • Extension Bars
  • Draws large circles
  • Divider
  • used to transfer measurements. To step off a series of equal distances, and to divide lines into a number of equal parts
