The Importance of Engineering Drawing in Engineering: A Review

Heena M. Patel, Mayur R. Chotaliya, Rishabh D. Makwana, Darshan H. Bhalodia


Technical drawings serve as a documentation of the planning process and facilitate effective communication between engineers. An engineer's best tool is a technical design, not a written plan, because a picture speaks a thousand words. Throughout the design process, engineers and other professionals are informed about technical details and design concepts through the use of engineering drawings. Technical drawings have a subclass called engineering drawings. To transmit all the information required for producing a product or a part is the aim.
