THE CONSTRUCTION DRAWINGS

TYPES OF CONSTRUCTION DRAWINGS Film and video drafting differs from other types. Engineering and architectural drafting require precise detail, because the products made from these types of drawings have to last a long time and are manufactured to close tolerances. Film and video drafting, however, uses many standard units, such as flats, platforms, and backings, and displays mostly surfaces instead of internal structure. Engineers and architects are horrified by what appears to be sloppy work on set construction prints, but such prints are standard to set carpenters who are not concerned with dose tolerances.
