A thorough resource on the art and science of technical drafting 

Drafting refers to the process of creating technical drawings that visually communicate the design, specifications, and details of an object, component, or system. It is a precise and systematic method of representing objects and their dimensions using standardized symbols, lines, and annotations. Drafting is essential in various industries, including engineering, architecture, manufacturing, construction, and product design. It helps ensure accurate and consistent documentation of designs, facilitates the understanding and interpretation of complex objects, and enables the transfer of information between different parties involved in a project.

Drafting has evolved with the introduction of computer-aided design (CAD) software, which enables digital creation, manipulation, and storage of technical drawings. However, the principles and concepts of drafting remain fundamental in creating precise and standardized technical drawings that effectively communicate design intent and specifications.
