HOW TO USE A STRAIGHTEDGE FOR DRAWING AND DRAFTING


If you’re drafting by hand, your drawings need to be clear and precise. So, the most important tool in your arsenal is a straightedge. Not only can they improve quality, but they can also save time. A parallel rule can work in a wide area, and it can help you to draw straighter lines. It can also make it easier to keep consecutive lines parallel. For vertical lines, you can use a triangle to draw both vertical and diagonal lines by placing it on top of a parallel rule. The T-square has been around before the parallel rule, and it can be placed on the edge of any flat surface. The parallel ruling ruler is three tools in one, because you can not only draw straight lines at any angle but can also draw circles and arcs. There are a variety of drawing and drafting tools available. So, feel free to browse through out store to find one that will meet your specific needs.

Drawing plans by hand has been a long-held practice among architects, and it has continued despite the industry's shift to digital systems. Like many writers who swear to the practice of hand-writing first drafts, many architects prefer to draw plans by hand — at least, when they’re in the early stages of designing. A drafting table can give you a flat surface on which to work, but drafting tape can keep the paper secure so you can focus on drawing. There are, of course, a variety tools to choose from — some of which can include:

  • Protractors and angle measures.
  • Rulers, T-squares, yardsticks, and other linear measuring tools.
  • Ruling pens.
  • Proportional dividers, including multi-point dividers.
  • Compasses, including a beam compass.
  • Folding parallel rulers.
  • Glider-style and rolling rulers.
  • Pantographs and other related tools.
