TECHNICAL DRAWING

Technical drawing is the act and discipline of composing drawings that visually communicate how something functions or is constructed. The drafting process is largely accelerated through the use of CAD software.

Types of technical drawings

MECHANICAL DRAWING

An engineering drawing is a type of technical drawing used to define the requirements for engineering products/components. The purpose of an engineering drawing is to clearly and accurately capture all geometric features of a product/component so that a manufacturer or engineer can produce the required item.

ELECTRICAL DRAWING

An electrical drawing is a type of technical drawing used to define the requirements for engineering products/components. The purpose of an electrical drawing is to clearly and accurately capture all geometric features of a product/component so that a manufacturer or engineer can produce the required item.

ARCHITECTURAL DRAWING

An architectural drawing is a technical drawing of a building (or building project). Architectural drawings are used to develop a design idea into a coherent proposal, to communicate ideas and concepts, to convince clients of the merits of a design, to enable a building contractor to construct it, or to make a record of a building.
