Engineering Drawing, also called technical drawing and engineering graphics, is the graphical representation of shape of any physical object which may be a part of a machine, a building, a dam, or any other complicated structure. The shape of some simple objects like spheres, cubes, cylinders, etc., may be described in words and sentences but ordinary language fails for complicated objects. Even if a thick book is written to describe the shape of a building, the reader will not be able to conceive the exact shape of that building with all its minor details. It can be safely said that it is almost impossible to describe the shape of an object in words and hence only three methods are left for the purpose namely camera photographs, models and drawings.
