Engineering Drawing

Technical Lines – side elevation of a racing spec Triumph T120TT. Reminds me of a draughting table, set square, and 0.15, 0.25, 0.5 & 0.7 Rotring drawing instruments.

  1. He Geordie. Were you once an Engineering Draightsman back in the day? That comment took me back “…Reminds me of a draughting table, set square, and 0.15, 0.25, 0.5 & 0.7 Rotring drawing instruments. I also recall scalpels for correcting mistakes; and small electric erasers which if you weren’t careful you could catch your long hair in which then wound round the armature to whack you in the head 🙂

    • Les, I studied technical and engineering drawing heavily in school thinking I’d be a draughtsman; however ended up getting a degree in Civil & Structural Engineering at Sheffield. Then after working in an office realized I needed more ‘creativity’ – not just crunching weight calculations, and feeding info to the office draughtsmen ( and women). So went back to uni for Landscape Architecture where it was more hands-on drawing… I was at the tail end of hand drawing before CAD came in – easier to erase! Though ‘easier’ to revise ad infinitum! So now I’m 75% computer drawing and the rest hand drawing. I should email you some examples of my typical work product…
