Chapter Summary

  • Understanding how to produce accurate geometry is required for technical drawings whether constructed by hand or using a CAD system.

  • All drawings are made up of points, lines, arcs, circles, and other basic elements in relation to each other. Whether you are drawing manually or using CAD, the techniques are based on the relationships between basic geometric elements.

  • CAD systems often produce the same result as a complicated hand construction technique in a single step. A good understanding of drawing geometry helps you produce quick and accurate CAD drawings as well as manual drawings.
