One of the best ways to communicate one's ideas is through some form of picture or drawing. This is especially true for the engineer. An engineering drawing is a type of drawing that is technical in nature and is used to fully and clearly define and convey the process and requirements to obtain a finished product ,be it a building or bridges or roads. It is usually prepared in accordance with basic principles and standardized conventions for the layout, nomenclature, lines and symbolic representations. As these drawings follow standard conventions, engineers can use them to communicate with each other anywhere in the world. Therefore, engineering drawing is often called the universal language of engineers. Learning to create and understand these drawings is, thus, very important for all engineering students.
Here we will be looking at some important points of engineering drawings that should be followed in order to satisfy both the aesthetic as well as workability aspects.
