The following are some suggestions for rationalizing and reducing cost in the drawing practice area.

Metric. Prepare drawings with metric dimensions only.

Inch. Do not change existing inch-dimensioned drawings unless necessary. Show linear dimensions in inches and decimals on inch drawings. Do not use feet and fractions.

Use of Symbols. The internationally recognized symbols shown in Fig. 3-1 are recommended used whenever practical. Symbols need no translations and take minimal drawing space.

Computer Drafting. Computer drafting is recommended. A number of excellent CAE∕CAD∕CAM computer software are available now, which will save time and reduce costly errors.
