Gear Design: More Than Pretty PicturesBy Charles Schultz
No one has a drafting room anymore and that is not a bad thing. Where dozens used to labor for weeks preparing detailed drawings of each component of a new machine, a couple of people with personal computers and a printer can easily produce the drawings in a matter of hours. And what beautiful drawings they are; every line crisp and well positioned, all the text wonderfully rendered. Sections will be accurate and many drawings will have isometric views we could only have dreamed about in the good old days.
