Explain how a given
engineering drawing would be used and the reasons it is suitable for its
An engineering drawing is used to
explain something in engineering. A diagram of a system. An assembly drawing to
show how something goes together. A drawing of a casting or machined part,
something like that
Engineers, draftsmen, machinists,
inspectors, and assembly people use these drawings to communicate with one
another, so they are the intended audience.
It takes some training and
background to be able to interpret these drawings. You have to 'learn the
language'. You need to understand the conventions of drafting--hidden lines,
'phantom lines', isometric views, sectional views, stuff like that. There are
also references to other documents--procedures, specifications, standards, etc.
that are relevant to the drawing at hand--and the audience usually has some
familiarity with these, or knows where to look them up.
Technical drawing, also known as
drafting, is the academic discipline of creating standardized technical
drawings by architects, interior designers, drafters, design engineers, and
related professionals. Standards and conventions for layout, line thickness,
text size, symbols, view projections, descriptive geometry, dimensioning, and
notation are used to create drawings that are ideally interpreted in only one
A person who does drafting is
known as a drafter. In some areas this person may be referred to as a drafting
technician, draftsperson, or draughtsman. This person creates technical
drawings which are a form of specialized graphic communication. A technical
drawing differs from a common drawing by how it is interpreted. A common
drawing can hold many purposes and meanings, while a technical drawing is
intended to concisely and clearly communicate all needed specifications to
transform an idea into physical form.
Engineering drawing shows you how to fabricate and
install the facility and the relation between elements to make it workable and
adequate for use, also it gives the proper dimensions required and the
reference to other facilities or equipments.
The drawings sometimes include the material take off for ordering and the
specifications and standard used
