Drawing Sketches

A sketch is a simple rough drawing that is made rapidly and without much detail. Sketches may take many forms—from a simple pictorial presentation to a multi-view orthographic projection.

Just as aircraft technicians need not be highly skilled in making drawings, they need not be accomplished artists. However, in many situations, they will need to prepare a drawing to present an idea for a new design, a modification, or a repair method. The medium of sketching is an excellent way of accomplishing this.

The rules and conventional practices for making mechanical drawings are followed to the extent that all views needed to portray an object accurately are shown in their proper relationship. It is also necessary to observe the rules for correct line use [Figures 2-23 and 2-24] and dimensioning.
