An engineer associated with a special branch, must also have perfect knowledge and skill in drawing. A wrong drawing will make a trained eye worried. A small mistake or error committed by an engineer misguides the workman or the operator that finally make the construction process a big flop.

What is Geometrical Drawing?

Geometrical drawing is the art of representing the geometrical objects like square, cylinder, cone, sphere, rectangle etc. The geometrical drawing forms the foundation of every engineering drawing. It is mainly of two types:
  1. Plain Geometrical Drawing
  2. Solid Geometrical Drawing

1. Plain Geometrical Drawings

It is the type of geometrical drawing that represents two dimensions like length , breadth, square on a drawing sheet.

2. Solid Geometrical Drawings
