AutoCAD / Re: Query: Source for CAD Generated Contour Lines
« Last post by draftandmodel on August 03, 2018, 04:09:56 AM »
Autodesk Autocad Civil 3D does a good job of this. I don't use it on an ongoing basis but it has worked well generating contour lines with my piping projects.

Mechanical Drafting / Re: Correct way to dimension at a certain location
« Last post by draftandmodel on August 02, 2018, 05:21:43 AM »
I think this is one of the first topics I read here so wanted to add a reply.

Your question can have many answers if I understand correctly. From a mechanical point of view there are so many details you can add to that initial dimension to help illustrate each and all necessary dimensions. Actually i am not sure where to start to build upon your base dimension. I am not an absolute expert just gained experience over the years and anything I would add may be purely subjective.

I think the best place to start would be to review your countries standards for mechanical drawings. As a good guideline here in Australia we have AS1100 General Principles. I have found whoever your work for will have their own subjective methods, and to sometimes make things even more difficult your clients have their own requirements.

One company I occasionally do work for develops their own standards and calls them AS1100, but they are not true AS1100, as they have re-written them with their own adjustments, but they still call them AS1100. I guess this is borrowing standards. I actually find it quite amusing.  :)

Anyway I got a bit off track. Just my opinion on this one.

Sometimes we put small circles around the points we are showing a dimension too, so it is clear where the dimension goes too.

Mechanical Drafting / Correct way to dimension at a certain location
« Last post by aldelgut on June 26, 2018, 02:02:09 PM »
Hello,

I'm new to this forum; hope you can help me with a question I have.
I need to specify in a drawing a dimension (x.xx) to be measured at a certain location (y). Can somebody tell me what is the correct way to specify it in the drawing? I include a sketch of what I'm trying to do, but I don't know if this is the correct way.

Thank you

Architectural Drafting / Queensland Based Opportunity

Hi

I run a drafting business in Brisbane and I've been approached by a fellow drafter asking if I'd be interested in getting work from a new drafting service which is due to be launched in the next month or two.  He was asked to help launch it in either Vic or Qld.  As he lives in QLD he'd rather have it here.  He asked me to see if there are other companies or sole traders that would be interested.  I've been asked to keep the name of the service a secret so as not to spoil the launch, rest assured it's recognized Australia wide, and will mean a lot of extra business.  It would mean being sent work on a plate.  You don't need to do anything, just let me know that you're interested so I can get the numbers up.

Anyone keen for it?

Hi,

I have recently started my own drafting & steel detailing company, working out the Melbourne's south east suburbs.

I am a structural & mechanical steel detailer, running AutoCAD & ProSteel, with around 10 years experience in the mining, materials handling, telco, commercial & residential fields, as well as some facade & glazing frame work.  I've worked on a large range of projects; including platforms, transfer towers, chutes, conveyors, bins & hoppers, access structures (stair towers, ladders, catwalks, etc), commercial & residential structural steel, equipment platforms, telecommunication towers, light gauge trusses & framing (facades), architectural balustrade.  I have also done some joinery shop drawings for cabinet makers.

I'm in the process of collating my professional portfolio, and building a website.  So once that is complete I will be sure to post further details.

For more information or any further enquiries, please follow the email link at richardsondrafting.com.au

Thank you.

Hi guys,

I have just branched out from my previous employer and started my own steel detailing business, working out of Melbourne's SE suburbs.

I'm in the early stages and still setting up.  I was just wondering if any pros out there wouldn't mind sharing some of their standard 'business' documents (templates), to help me get started of setting up my own?

I'm mostly interested in the following:
 - Tender document
 - Sales/Tax Invoice
 - Purchase Order
 - Purchase Invoice
 - Scope of Works Summary
 ... and anything else I might need.

Thanks a lot for any help guys.
