Drawing Instruments and
Engineering drawing is a two dimensional representation of three dimensional objects. In general, it
provides necessary information about the shape, size, surface quality, material, manufacturing process,
etc., of the object. It is the graphic language from which a trained person can visualise objects.
Drawings prepared in one country may be utilised in any other country irrespective of the
language spoken. Hence, engineering drawing is called the universal language of engineers. Any
language to be communicative, should follow certain rules so that it conveys the same meaning to
every one. Similarly, drawing practice must follow certain rules, if it is to serve as a means of
communication. For this purpose, Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS) adapted the International
Standards on code of practice for drawing. The other foreign standards are: DIN of Germany, BS
of Britain and ANSI of America.
