5: Interpret mechanical drawings

  • Page ID
  • Interpreting drawings requires the ability to visualize and the ability to interpret what is being drawn and written. The drawing should be studied carefully before beginning any work. The reader should attempt to visualize what is being shown on the drawing and how it will be built. Mistakes can be made when the tradesperson does not take the time to become fully familiar with the drawing.
