Pps : Drawing Quality

     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.

Tip : Startup Suite

           Contains a list of applications that are loaded each time you start AutoCAD. This can be handy when you use a lisp file in daily use so that you don’t need to load it every time. The lisp files in the start up suit are loaded automatically whenever a new drawing file is opened.

Note: when you adding lisp applications to startup suite contents, add only lisp files which you need to be loaded when you start AutoCAD.
