COMMON BLUE PRINT OVERSIGHTS

Mistakes and oversights on blueprints and solid models can cause long delays and costly diversions in the manufacturing process. While most new computer assisted design software uses a 3D solid model to produce a 2D drawing file, some drafters and engineers still use strictly 2D software. Whether you are using a 2D or 3D software, avoiding common errors is essential …
