MODEL-MAKING TOOLS USED BY DRAFTERS AND ARCHITECTS


A good model can bring a design to life, and it can eliminate a lot of the guesswork. 3D printing has allowed engineers to make detailed models through the use of computers and other pieces of high-tech equipment, but making a model by hand can be very satisfying. To make a model, you’ll need something to cut, cut on, and cut with. So, you’ll need some type of material with which you’ll make the model, along with a blade and work surface that can be used in the construction. Cutting mats are great for model-making because instead of cutting directly on your work surface, you can place it underneath the area on which you want to cut so it doesn’t get damaged.


USING STRAIGHTEDGES FOR DRAWING AND DRAFTING


Drafting is all about precision. Not only do your drawings have to communicate clearly, but they also have to be clean and precise. One of the most important drafting tools is the straightedge, because it can not only save time and frustration but can also improve the quality of your drawings. Two of the most common tools are the parallel rule and the adjustable triangle. You can set the triangle on top of the parallel rule to draw vertical and diagonal lines. But despite the versatility that these tools provide, the most tried-and-true type of straightedge is the T-square. It can be placed on the edge of any straight table, so you can have a perfectly straight line. You can also find several different types of rulers and other measuring tools that can also be used as straightedges.

A quality arts and crafts table is the key to improving your workflow. But if you’re concerned about replacing your old table, there are some things you have to consider. The first thing you have to think about is size. Modern art tables can vary dramatically, so you need to think about your limitations. Make sure you measure the entire footprint and tabletop to find out what’s practical for your workspace. Some tables fold up easily, which can save space. And some are even portable. Materials are also important to consider because it can affect the cost, but even professional tables can vary widely in this area. So, be sure to choose an option that will not only fit your style but will also create a comfortable workspace.


The design of the table will make a big difference. Whether you want a compact table or a more spacious design, you’ll have to choose between a four-post or a two-post design. An artist drawing table with four posts will be sturdier than a two-post model, and they’ll often come with convenient storage drawers. However, a two-post table will be more affordable. It’s also less intrusive and has a more modern look. Be sure to look through our broad selection of art tables, so you can find one that will suit your specific needs.

Frequently Asked Questions

Why do people use art tables?

Also called a “drawing table” or “mechanical desk,” a craft table looks a lot like a writing table or pedestal desk if it’s set at a horizontal position, but the difference between art tables and other types of desks is the presence of a lip on one side. It keeps paper or books from sliding off when it's placed at an angle, which is a big advantage for artists who find it easier to work when the paper or sketch pad is in a diagonal position.

What is an arts and crafts table used for?

An arts and crafts table allows you to adjust the angle of the surface, so you can work on a diagonal surface. Not only can the height be adjusted, but it also has a lip that will keep the paper from sliding off. Artists find this feature to be useful, but art tables can also be used by architects, designers, and engineers.

What types of materials can art tables be made out of?

A craft table can be made out of the following materials:
  • Powder-coated steel.
  • Solid wood.
  • Plywood.
Art tables can also have casters, so you can move it more easily around classrooms and workshops. And others will have floor glides that can prevent damage to the surface on which it rests.

What are the characteristics of craft table?

When it’s in a horizontal position, an arts and crafts table can look like an ordinary writing desk, but it has some other characteristics that make it more unique. Not only can the angle of the surface be adjusted, but it also has a lip that keeps the paper from sliding off. These features can come in handy for any artist, architect, or designer who may need to work on a surface with a more diagonal surface.

Can I restore furniture used for arts and crafts?

Old art tables that are made of solid wood can be restored and repaired. Dark stains and blemishes can be removed with varnish and sanding. But if you’re not experienced in woodworking, it’s best to hire a professional. If you’re looking for a craft table with a more classical look, be sure to look at what we have at Engineering Supply.
