Model Assembly and Drawings for Detailed Design of Projects
This chapter deals with the use of computers for project detailing. It is not usually a practical proposition to build a full 3-D model which contains all the details of a complete project. Yet to simply produce one drawing after another with a computer drafting system is to miss opportunities. So the discussion of CAD techniques, initiated in Chapter 3, is taken up again and extended to cover the design detailing phase. In practice, a pragmatic blend of 2-D and 3-D computer modelling appears to be the best answer.
