Introduction Technical Drawing

In a technical drawing, all information needed to manufacture a component or an entire assembly are needed to be drawn out. The presentation must be clearly identified so that when you read the drawing noconfusion may occur.

To see all information about the object in the drawing usually must accommodate multiple views from different view directions are presented. Often also cut views of the component or assembly is needed to represent covert geometries.
The drawing must apply one drawing edge, a writing box, and the characters are divided area. For assemblies may also be a play list in the bottom right corner of the Font box added.

Technical drawings are usually in A4 size paper up to DIN A0 created. The drawing format must be chosen so that the object can be displayed easily. To accomplish this, the drawings in different scales can be made. I.e. The objects are either increased or decreased. When an elected scale, for example, 2:1 (spoken: "two to one") is the object twice as large as depicted in reality. Draw the same object, for example, with a scale of 1:2, it is only half as large as depicted in reality it is.

The creation of a technical drawing is now usually associated with the computer (CAD). Previously, the drawings with ink pen and the help of sign boards, stencils, ruler and other tools created characters.

To the uniqueness of the drawing to ensure there are precise standards and rules for all elements of technical drawing. For example, line types and strengths for each line item accurately determined. There are views for cutting representation rules, as well as the differing views. Also, the standard graphic representation of parts (screws, nuts, etc.) is precisely defined.
