Many areas in visual communication rely on the use of precise drawing instruments. Architects, engineers, product designers and interior designers recognise and use standard instrumental drawing methods to convey complex information about constructed and manufactured objects.
Setting up the page:
When creating an instrumental drawing, you may be asked to set up a drawing area in a formal manner. There is a number of page set-up formats, but it is important to keep in mind that the page is designed to convey as much information as possible about the drawing itself. Any additional information should not detract from the drawing content.
