Engineering Drawing The words of the language, as they are written or spoken, do not seem to play any role in my mechanism of thought. The psychical entities which seem to serve as elements in thought are certain signs and more or less clear images which can be “voluntarily” reproduced and combined--this combinatory play seems to be the essential feature in productive thought before there is any connection with logical construction in words or other kinds of signs which are communicated to others --Albert Einstein Contents
1. Try to write a description of this object. 2. Test your written description by having someone attempt to make a sketch or visualize from your description. Effectiveness of Graphic Language The word language is inadequate for describing the size , shape and features completely as well as concisely. You can easily understand that …
Graphic Language in Engineering Drawing “ Engineering drawing” or “blueprint” uses l ines to represent the features of an object. Features of an object are surface (include plane ) and edge . Surface Edge
A drawing can be created in 3 ways Ways to Create an Engineering Drawing
Using typical drawing instruments
Using a computer
Example Create a Drawing : Freehand sketch Pictorial sketch Orthographic sketch The lines are drawn using only pencil and erasers on a blank or grid paper.
Example Create a Drawing : Using instruments Drawing instruments are used to draw straight lines, circles, and curves concisely and accurately . Drawings are usually made to scale .
Example Create a Drawing : Using a computer 2D drawing Solid modeling Computer aided drafting (CAD) software is used.
Elements of a Drawing A clear and precise engineering drawing requires both graphics and word languages. Graphics language Describe a shape (mainly). Word language Describe an exact size, location and specification of the object.

Definition and Necessity Drawing standards are set of rules that govern how technical drawings are represented. Drawing standards are used so that drawings convey the same meaning to everyone who reads them.

Drawing Scales : Definition Drawing Actual Length, size 1 2 : Scale is a ratio between the linear dimension of a drawn representation of an object and the actual object.
SCALE 1:1 for full size SCALE X :1 (X > 1) for an enlargement scales SCALE 1: X (X > 1) for a reduction scales Drawing Scales : Designation Designation of a scale consists of the word “ SCALE ” followed by the indication of its ratio , as follows Drawing scale is commonly found in a title block.
Drawing Scales : Notes Dimension numbers shown in the drawing represent the “ true size ” of an object and they are independent of the drawing scale used.
Drawing Scales : Standard scale Standard reducing scales are 1:2, 1:5, 1:10, 1:20, 1:50, 1:100 Standard enlarging scales are 2:1, 5:1, 10:1, 20:1, 50:1, 100:1

- Size (or text height) - line thickness

Recommendation Legibility Uniformity Examples GOOD Not uniform in style. Not uniform in height. Not uniformly vertical. Not uniform in thickness of stroke. Inappropriate space between letters Text’s style on the drawing must have the following 2 properties
Style (this course) Gothic vertical style. Begin the sentence, phrase or word with a capital letter. Text height 2~3 mm. Space between lines of text is about of text height. Height of the lower-case letter is about 2/3 of that of a capital letter.

DRAWING Word Composition Non-uniform spacing Uniform spacing D R A W I N G Space between the letters depends on the adjacent contour of the letters. Word having non-uniform spacing is more readable.
Word Composition Contour DRAWING Adjacent contour can be 1. straight-straight : II, IN, IM, IP etc. 2. straight-curve (or curve-straight) : IO, QR etc. 3. straight-slant (or slant-straight) : IV, IW etc. 4. curve-curve : OO, OG etc. 5. slant-curve (or curve-slant) : VO, WG, VC etc. 6. slant-slant : VW, VX etc. Spacing Contour can be denoted as “ straight ”, “ slant ” and “ curve ”.
Leave the space between words equal to the space requires for writing a letter “O”. Example Sentence Composition ALL DIMENSIONS ARE IN MILLIMETERS O O O O UNLESS OTHERWISE SPECIFIED. O
