Technical Drawings


Technical drawings are a graphic representation of the real world or planned structures and buildings. It is an essential tool for communication between designers and developers by explaining complex systems and ideas.

Engineering drawings will vary to artistic or even architectural drawings. Artistic drawings express emotions and creative architectural drawings aim to plan spaces for ease and comfort of use. An architect will deal with building presentation and aesthetics, how the building fits into the surroundings to be pleasing for the eye.

Contrary to artistic drawings, structural engineering drawing deals with scientific and objective problems. Technical drawing aims to present a solution to the technical problem with clarity, leaving no space for ambiguity.
