CAD Drawing Techniques

In the engineering world, drawings are everything. Without CAD drawings, many 3D models would be virtually impossible to manufacture. To create a drawing, you no longer have to spend hours at a drafting table with your pencils, triangles, scales, and erasers.

Whether you’re an experienced drafter or you’re just getting started, this white paper will help you learn or refine basic drafting techniques to improve the manufacturability of your CAD drawings.

What’s inside?

In this white paper, you’ll explore a variety of key concepts:

  • Design guidance to focus more on clarity, precision and accuracy
  • Tips for spending more time on your templates
  • Overview of how to create personalized tables and callouts
  • Strategies for creating models with drawings in mind

Regardless of your engineering discipline, CAD drawings have a common purpose: to convey information on how a part, structure or assembly is to be produced. In order to enable production, you must have clear, precise drawings that are easy to interpret.
