  Technical Drawing Tools FAQ's
With CAD, on the Internet, a special format is required and the person accessing the file must download a special viewer before they can even open a file.
In the eighties CAD was probably the only reasonable way of producing an isometric drawing on a computer.
Add to that the fact that Tech Drawing Tools and the included symbol libraries export flawlessly and you have a powerful tool set.

  Technology Education - Technical Drawing
All technical drawing has many standards so that one person's drawing of an object will be the same as another person's drawing of the same object.
To draw an arc, circle, and ellipses, the point of the compass should be placed at a circles center, the pencil edge should be placed at the end of the radius.
Draw a construction line to the vanishing point from the center down and to the opposite of the vanishing point that measurement.

 Technical drawing - Wikipixel
Technical drawing, also known as drafting or draughting, is the technique of creating engineering drawings.
Primary among these are the compass, used for drawing simple arcs and circles, and the French curve, typically a piece of plastic with complex curves on it.
Even tasks as simple as drawing two angled lines meeting at a point required a number of moves of the t-square and triangles, and in general drafting was a time consuming process.

 Technical drawing software: A bridge to the future
Those who use technical drawing software to create, maintain and update electrical drawings benefit from increased accuracy, decreased design time, lower costs of design and construction, increased profits and a competitive edge.
Technical drawing (or diagramming) is a relatively new variation of conventional CAD, and it fits squarely between traditional 2-D and 3-D. When CAD arrived on the scene, it promised and delivered increased accuracy and efficiency for visually depicting physical objects in two dimensions.
Technical drawing fills the gap between traditional 2-D and 3-D. While technical drawing software displays physical representations in 2-D, it foregoes traditional 2-D geometry to produce a drawing.

 Drawing Room / Technical Information
Drawing provides an almost magical source of pleasure as the drawer transforms a blank sheet of paper into an image that reveals a personal interpretation of what is seen in a way that transcends photography.
Place your drawing board in the same line of vision as the object, so that you can see both the object and your drawing at the same time.
If you draw a circle and build up the lines on one side of the circle and slowly diminish the amount of line as you move towards the other side of the circle, you transform the circle to a sphere.

 Kevin Hulsey Technical Illustration - History Of Technical Illustration
Thus, a new concept in drawing was realized when it was generally accepted that parallel lines, if extended to infinity, would appear to meet at a single point on the horizon.
Even though computer drawing programs are taking much of the drudgery out of technical illustration, It will still be important for the illustrator to have a fundamental understanding of the basic principles of drawing that have brought us this far.
Through the use of sophisticated drawing programs, technical illustrators will have powerful new tools at their disposal to further the goal of increasing human visual understanding and push the boundaries of this long-enduring art form.

The classical 2D drawings require a certain skill to interpret them correctly; isometric drawings (and their derivatives, exploded views) are easy (easier) to understand for the technical layman, too.
A drawing may give all necessary information about castings or forgings to be used, prescribe how the parts should be machined, and/or heat and/or surface treated, or about other finishing treatments, such as painting, tarring, and so on.
By studying such a drawing, the user, a maintenance man, a potential customer, a civil servant can gain an insight into the object or project which is the basis for this drawing.

 Visio Technical: A Technical Drawing WhitePaper   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-26)
In Visio Technical, lines automatically stay connected to objects, which is especially important when creating network diagrams, engineering schematics, process flow diagrams, and other technical drawings where critical linkage and flow information is designated by the lines that connect objects together.
Drawings can even be created automatically from databases, eliminating the need to manually create your technical drawings.
The aim of this white paper is to provide you with a greater understanding of the ways Visio Technical can make your business more competitive and more profitable, and why it is becoming a standard among corporations seeking an effective, cost-efficient solution to their technical drawing needs.

 MVMMS- Tech Drawing
Precise graphic information about size, proportion, and structure is essential in architecture and engineering, and the art and science of technical drawing was developed over many centuries in these fields.
Representational drawing and sketching is concerned with "drawing what you see," or "drawing that which you imagine as if you actually saw it." Technical drawing is concerned with representing objects according to conventions that allow size, proportions, and structure - as well as appearance - to be precisely specified.
It also works in reverse: if you correctly draw the individual views onto the pieces of glass, fold them all up into a box with 90 degree corners, then project points from each drawing into the middle of the box, the resulting intersections will define the 3 dimensional object.

 Corel DESIGNER Technical Suite 12
Corel DESIGNER Technical Suite 12 meets the immediate and long-term needs of organizations who need to create technical documents faster and with greater precision, while reducing their overall cost of ownership.
The new projected drawing modes dramatically increase productivity by letting the technical illustrator actively draw on the projected plane, which eliminates the need to draw the object first and then project it in a second step.
Corel DESIGNER Technical Suite 12 was conceived with a specific focus on the technical illustrator's needs for design precision, collaboration efficiency and flexibility, and the ability to repurpose old data and drawings.

I have personally witnessed the struggles of many whom, having necessity to complete a course of study based upon this book, were ill-suited by their own admission for the discipline required of the eye, hand, and attention (or mind) as demanded by the capable sketch artist--to say nothing of the trained detail design drafter.
Technical Drawing, 12th edition, as with previous editions, is therefore highly recommended for the tenacious engineer, designer and drafter.
Technical Drawing may well be a decent-enough reference book--a tome capable of reminding one of what he/she already knows--but in my brief experience, it cannot educate.

 Technical Drawing Screen Shot
And if you need to change the scale of drawing in progress - all objects are redrawn at their "physical" size, a feature not common to popular priced CAD drawing packages.
When objects are to or from drawings or layers with different scales, the "physical" size of the graphic is correctly maintained.
The Tape tool (top right of the palette) is very useful for technical drawings, it understands the drawing's scale and can be used as a floating cursor, an interactive inspector for graphic positions and sizes, and a very useful on-screen Tape Measure.

This drawing engine has always been exceptionally good for the types of drawing work that office people want to do, but it lacked some key capabilities required for it to be a complete 2D CAD system that technical drawing professionals could use for all their needs.

Such users may well look elsewhere for Windows-based drawing tools that are more closely matched to technical drawing tasks, have a smaller footprint and cost a lot less for a perfectly acceptable result.
