Imperial Cad drawings
« on: May 05, 2017, 03:36:00 am »
In the U.S.
for Structural ShopDetail drawings
and for platework ShopDetail drawings

What do you guys use for UNITS
Decimal or Engineering ?

How do you define Dimensions
Decimal or Stacked fractions ?

I have a copy of your AISC 'Structural Steel Detailing Manual' from the early 80's but a lot has changed since then.

Can I assume you use lbs for material list mass ?

I hope this is not too much of an 'it depends'  answer, but I can live with that if I have an idea what it depends upon.
Regards,

Sometimes the question is more important than the answer.

I'm pretty sure the answer for most would be Architectural with stacked fractions.

Thanks Rob.

I was raised on Imperial "Weights and Measures" until the late 60's - early 70's
... so my brain shouldn't get too twisted

I'll try to get some sample drawings ...
