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.

OFFERING A VARIETY OF OPTIONS FOR IMPROVED WORKFLOW

If you’re a professional artist, you know that time is money. So, you need to have a work area that will maximize your productivity. That’s why we offer tables that come with a variety of options and accessories. Some of them will give you a flat surface from which you can work, while others may have additional features that can help you to stay organized and efficient. You can even buy an arts and crafts table as part of a package, which may include a chair or some other feature that can help you to build your ideal workstation. Feel free to look at what we have in stock. And if you need help with your decision, be sure to reach out to us. We would be happy to help!



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.

ASSEMBLE THE SATURN DRAWING TABLE


The Saturn Drawing Table is easy to assemble. All you need is a screwdriver, key, and drill. But you want to make sure you have all the parts before you start putting it together. Flip the frame over, and attach the base pipes. Make sure the longer part is facing toward the front, so it can support the rest of the frame. Attach the rubber feet to the pipes, followed by the adjustment handles. From there, you can attach the drawing board by laying it flat on a blanket or towel and screwing the frame onto the center of the board.


ALVIN PORTABLE STRAIGHT EDGE BOARD


There are times when you need to work no matter where you are, which is where the Alvin Straight Edge Board comes in handy. Start by turning it upside down and opening two feet that will allow it to sit on an incline. The grills on the opposite edges of the board can be used to keep it in place at the edge of the table. Simply move it toward you until they catch at the desired position. The Alvin Straight Edge Board is perfect for on-the-go architectural work, which is why you should consider adding it to your list of tools.
