Re: DRAFTING: Structural Drafting Standard

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Yes Bill you are getting old.  :)  

(would have it anyother way? the alternative is quite harsh)

"text is in the "middle" of the dimension line, and the line breaks on
either side of the text "

that's more they way I was used to in aerospace /  ME design world
(not HVAC or plumbing)

"Also, their text is always horizontal no matter whether it is a
"vertical" or "horizontal" dimension."

on this we didn't have a hard rule, the draftsman (how old is that) /
designer  could do whatever he felt "looked better"

Tyson is a huge company with a long history & I assume a fair amount
of  "that's the way we do it here"  attitude.

I know a firm that that does a fair amount of work for a large
amusment park company & they have very specfic, unusual specialised
design / drafting standards.

imo it's big company thing

cheers
Bob
