Why is engineering drawing considered the graphical language of engineers?

An engineering drawing, that is, a technical drawing or set of schematics that follow international standards of commonly recognized de-facto rules can be understood without language, and with a minimum amount of words written on the drawing. The drawing conveys a lot of information that would be error prone and ambiguous when conveyed through human language.

What is the function of the set square?

It's primarily a template for drawing lines at accurate right-angles and other angles to a line, usually 30º / 60º and 45º for standard set-squares. It's also used for drawing parallel lines. Adjustable set-squares allow you to set off other angles.

What is the necesssity of setting limits at the beginning of autocad?

The "limits" define the area of your "drawing board" (field). It is not neccessary to set them to form an inordinately large, or infinite field at the start of a drawing, as they can be altered later if needs be. It is neccessary to set them, however, as in certain circumstances the program uses zero as the default setting. If you blithely accept this setting you will have no field in which to produce your drawing.

A T square is a drawing instrument used by engineers and draftsmen to come up with engineering design drawings. Consists of two arms at right angles to each other (usually made of wood). One arm is shorter than the other and the shorter arm slides against the edge of a drawing board and the longer arm is used to draw precise parallel and perpendicular lines and other equally accurate lines using set squares and protractors additionally.

Different drawing instruments and their uses?

Drawing Instruments are used to prepare neat and accurate Drawings. To a greater extent, the accuracy of the Drawings depend on the quality of instruments used to prepare them. The following is the list of Drawing Instruments and other materials required. a) Drawing Board b) T-square or Drafter (Drafting machine) c) Set Squares d) Protractor e) Drawing Instrument Box f) Drawing Sheet g) Drawing Pencils h) Drawing Pins/Clips a) Drawing Board : Drawing board is made from strips of well seasoned soft wood generally 25 mm thick. It is cleated at the back by two battens to prevent warping. One of the shorter edges of the rectangular board is provided with perfectly straight ebony edge which is used as working edge on which the T-square is moved while making Drawings. Battens Working edge (ebony) Fig. 1A.1 Note: When Minidrafter (Drafting machine) is used to prepare Drawings, the working edge is not

Could you still study civil engineering even if you cant draw?

Absolutely. With the advance of drawing and modeling software and its availability and ease of use by the common public (CADD i.e. computer aided design and drafting), drawing, in its traditional sense is no longer required for engineers, it is a good skill set to have, but it is not necessary.

How do you Start a Drawing from Scratch in GstarCAD?

A quick way to begin a new drawing is to start from scratch, which starts a drawing that uses settings from a default drawing template file.Use the Create New Drawing Dialog BoxThe following conditions must be met to display the Create New Drawing dialog box:The STARTUP system variable is set to 1 (on).The FILEDIA system variable is set to 1 (on).The Create New Drawing dialog box provides several methods for starting a new drawing.When you use Start from Scratch, you can specify either imperial or metric units for the new drawing. The setting you select determines default values used for many system variables controlling text, dimensions, grid, snap, and the default linetype and hatch pattern file.Use the Select Template Dialog BoxThe Select Template dialog box is displayed under the following conditions:The STARTUP system variable is set to 0 (off).The FILEDIA system variable is set to 1 (on).
