Technical drawings for manufacturing are critically important documents—they inform every machine cut, forming, and critical feature during production.

To reduce the chances of having drawings returned from the manufacturer with many redlines and substitution requests, it is essential to create clear technical drawings the first time.

This free eBook is full of best practices to help engineers create clear and professional manufacturing drawings the first time around.
