Engineering Drawing & Drafting Tools
Professional drafting is done by engineers, architects, and product designers. These professionals’ drawings follow varying principles and entail different requirements, but their basics and required drafting tools are very similar. This video provides an overview of what engineering drawing is and what drawing instruments are commonly used to make them. Most details are applicable to other types of technical drawings, including those for architecture. For more information, check out our comprehensive guide on drafting.
Drafting Supplies & Equipment
Be it a 100-story building or a simple flannel shirt, every creation that needs accurate measurements and even lines won’t be possible without the use of drafting tools. These tools are often used by various professionals when making scale drawings, blueprints, cutting and sewing fabrics, and all other tasks that involve measuring, drawing straight lines, and creating patterns. Because of the consistent demand for these tools, Engineer Warehouse chose the best drafting tools out there and made them available for order.
Straight edges and T-squares are commonly used to draw straight lines while rulers offer the same function and feature calibrations for accurate measurements. For drawing angles, drafting triangles can provide either 45-90 or 30-60 angles. L-squares and form curves can help illustrators and fashion designers measure and make all kinds of patterns, and the latter can also produce curved lines for armholes and necklines of clothes. To easily cut and measure long fabrics, there are yardsticks specifically designed for tailors and quilters. Engineers and architects can draw with scale measurements using different types of drafting scales that are combined in drafting fans and drafting kits. With all of these tools, you can easily order one for your next project.
