Engineering Drawing Standards Explained

Posted November 10, 2021

Engineering drawings are the medium through which engineers communicate the design requirements of an engineered product or component. Often termed as mechanical drawings, manufacturing blueprints, or dimensional prints, engineering drawings accurately and clearly capture all the geometric features of the components or products illustrated in the drawing. A clear and technically accurate drawing will ultimately allow the manufacturer or fabricator to produce the component without any errors.
