1 Drafting Equipment, Media, and Reproduction Methods
CHAPTER 2 Drafting Equipment, Media, and Reproduction Methods

2 Learning Objectives Describe and demonstrate the use of manual drafting equipment and supplies Explain the concept of drawing scale, and identify common inch and metric scales Read metric, civil engineer, architect, and mechanical scales

3 Learning Objectives Describe and use drafting media, sheet sizes, and sheet blocks and symbols Explain common drawing reproduction methods

4 Manual Drafting (Hand Drafting)
Mostly replaced by computer-aided design and drafting (CADD) Manual drafting and CADD require understanding the basics of drafting Scale Sheet size Sheet format

5 Manual Drafting Equipment and Supplies
Historical reference Still valuable for: Sketching Taking measurements Other related activities Still used by some companies for certain applications

6 Automatic Pencils Common for manual drafting, sketching, and office use Do not require sharpening Available in several different lead sizes Combination of 0.5, 0.7, and 0.9 mm pencils and leads good for sketching and daily use

7 Lead Grades Different grades of hardness for specific techniques
2H and H good for typical daily office use 2H to F for thick lines 4H to H for thin lines 6H or 4H for construction lines and guidelines

8 Compasses Especially useful for large circles and arcs
More time consuming than a template Bow compass (shown)

9 Dividers Bow Proportional

10 Parallel Bar Draw horizontal lines
Use triangles to draw vertical lines and angles

11 Triangles Straightedge Draw angles Connect points 30°–60° triangle
Angles of 30°–60°–90° 45° triangle Angles of 45°–45°–90°

12 Templates Circles Ellipses Letters
Specific requirements and drafting disciplines Examples: Architectural symbols Electronic schematic symbols

13 Irregular Curves Have no constant radii French and flexible curves
Radius curve

14 Drafting Machines Generally take the place of triangles and parallel bars Maintains a horizontal and vertical relationship between scales Scales serve as straightedges Protractor allows scales to be set quickly at any angle

15 Arm and Track Drafting Machines

16 Scale Measurement instrument
Specific scales for mechanical, architectural, civil, and metric drawings Used by manual drafters to help create scaled drawings Still useful for sketching, taking measurements, and related tasks Four basic shapes

17 Scale Concept A universal and critical design and drafting concept

18 Drawing Scale Drawings are scaled so the objects represented can be illustrated clearly on standard sizes of paper Depends on: Actual size of the objects drawn Amount of detail to show Media size Amount of dimensioning and notes required

19 Inch Mechanical Drawing Scales
Full scale = FULL or 1:1 Half scale = HALF or 1:2 Quarter scale = QUARTER or 1:4 Twice scale = DOUBLE or 2:1 Four times scale = 4:1 Ten times scale = 10:1

20 Drawing Scale

21 Metric Mechanical Drawing Scales
Full scale = 1:1 Half scale = 1:2 One fifth scale = 1:5 One twenty-fifth scale = 1:25 One thirty-three and one-third scale = 1:33 1/3 One seventy-fifth scale = 1:75

22 U.S. Customary Architectural Drawing Scales
1/8" = 1'–0" 1/4" = 1'–0" 1/2" = 1'–0" 1" = 1'–0" 1 1/2" = 1'–0" 3" = 1'–0"

23 U.S. Customary Civil Drawing Scales
1" = 10' 1" = 20' 1" = 30' 1" = 50' 1" = 60' 1" = 100'

24 Metric Scale Any scale is a multiple of ten
Any reductions or enlargements are easy to perform No mathematical calculations should be required

25 Civil Engineer’s Scale
Divisions Ratio Scales Used with This Division 10 1:1 1" = 1" 1" = 1' 1" = 10' 1" = 100' 20 1:2 1" = 2" 1" = 2' 1" = 20' 1" = 200' 30 1:3 1" = 3" 1" = 3' 1" = 30' 1" = 300' 40 1:4 1" = 4" 1" = 4' 1" = 40' 1" = 400' 50 1:5 1" = 5" 1" = 5' 1" = 50' 1" = 500' 60 1:6 1" = 6" 1" = 6' 1" = 60' 1" = 600"

26 Civil Engineer’s Scale
Any multiple of ten 10 scale often used for mechanical drawings at full, decimal-inch scale (1:1) 20 scale common for mechanical drawings at half scale (1:2) 20 scale used for scales of 1" = 2', 1" = 20', and 1" = 200' 50 scale popular in civil drafting

27 Architect’s Scale 11 different scales Ten of the scales Eleventh scale
Inch represents a specific increment of feet Feet subdivided into multiples of 12 parts to represent inches and fractions of an inch Eleventh scale Full scale divided into 16 parts, each part equal to 1/16 of an inch

28 Mechanical Engineer’s Scale
Common for mechanical drawings in fractional or decimal inches Full-scale divisions divided into 1/16, 10, and 50

29 Vellum Most common drafting media Inexpensive
Good smoothness, erasability, and transparency Less durable and dimensionally stable Appropriate for regular graphite leads Well drawn graphite on vellum reproduces well

30 Polyester Film Mylar® Expensive
Excellent durability, smoothness, erasability, dimensional stability, and transparency Best with ink or special polyester leads Well drawn ink on polyester film reproduces the best

53 Glossary Angle of projection block Application block Automatic pencil
Specifies how to interpret a drawing according to the method of view projection. Application block Includes information such as next assembly and where used for drawings of a detail part or assembly of a component of a larger assembly. Automatic pencil A pencil with a lead chamber that advances the lead from the chamber to the writing tip by the push of a button or tab when a new piece of lead is needed.

54 Glossary CAGE Code Compass Dimensioning and tolerancing block
A five number code assigned by the United States Defense Logistic Service Center (DLSC) to all Department of Defense contractors. CAGE stands for Commercial And Government Entity. Compass An instrument used to draw circles and arcs. Dimensioning and tolerancing block Specifies the general dimensioning and tolerancing specifications found on the drawing.

55 Glossary Dividers Drafting machine Ellipse
Used to transfer dimensions or to divide a distance into a number of equal parts. Dividers are also used in navigation to measure distance in nautical miles. Drafting machine A machine that mounts to the table or board and has scales attached to an adjustable head that rotates for drawing angles. Ellipse A circle seen at an angle.

56 Glossary Manual drafting (hand drafting) Margin drawing number block
Traditional drafting practice using pencil or ink on a medium such as paper or polyester film, with the support of drafting instruments and equipment. Margin drawing number block Identifies the drawing number and sheet number, and optional revision, when reading the margin information on the drawing. Media The material upon which you create drawings, such as paper or polyester film.

57 Glossary Microfilm Proportional dividers Revision History block
A film on which drawings or other printed materials are photographed at greatly reduced size for ease of storage and sending from one place to another. When needed, equipment is available for enlargement of the microfilm to a printed copy. Proportional dividers Used to reduce or enlarge an object without the need of mathematical calculations or scale manipulations. Revision History block Also called the revision block, is used to record changes to the drawing.

58 Glossary Revision status of sheets block Scale Templates
Appears on the first sheet of multiple sheet drawings and records the revision status of each drawing. Scale An instrument with a system of ordered marks at fixed intervals used as a reference standard in measurement. A scale establishes a proportion used in determining the dimensional relationship of an actual object to the representation of the same object on a drawing. Templates Plastic sheets with accurate shapes cut out and are used as a stencil for drawing the shapes.

59 Glossary Vellum Xerography Zoning
Drafting paper with translucent properties that is specially designed to accept pencil or ink. Xerography A dry photographic or photocopying process in which a negative image formed by a resinous powder on an electrically charged plate is electrically transferred to and fixed as positive on a paper or other copying surface. Zoning A system of numbers along the top and bottom margins and letters along the left and right margins.
