Drafting is like a blue-print of what you are going to make. Mrs. Dunlap is my drafting teacher. We draft on paper and on Google Sketch Up.Google Sketch Up is like drafting but on the computer. Drafting is also know as CADD. Which means Computer Aided Design or Drafting. The basic tools you use for drafting are: a scale, a brush, a 45 degree triangle, a 30 degree triangle, and the T-square.
This is the T-square
This is a tool that we use in drafting. It is called a T-square. In drafting, the T-square is the boss. If you T-square is not straight, you drawing will be crooked. You would also have to start all over again. The first thing that you do always is check the T-square. You would also use this to make straight lines. It is called a T-square, because it looks like the letter T. It is pretty funny how they came up with this name. The T-square is supposed to be at the end of the drawing board.
The first day I walked into my drafting class, I did not know what this was. Now that I know what this is, I would know what someone would be talking about, because I have seen it and know how to use it. Maybe a few years back I would have not known what this is, but know I know what it is used for, and how to use it. I am glad that I have taken this class, because I know how to use items like: the T-square, the compass and the two triangles that we have to use.
I made a connection with this by remembering that when I used to draw, for straight lines I would use a ruler. A ruler is much shorter and thinner than a T-square. T-square is much more bigger and longer. They both make the same straight lines, but the T-square makes them more finer and easier to see. The T-square is used for many things, but mainly for drawing straight lines, and making your paper straight.
