Ted's Engineering Drawing

Blogs on Wordpress.com

Sharing my experience creating engineering drawings through blogs when I was working at OEM companies throughout the Silicon Valley . Way back in the day we used to draw on drafting tables and saved our drawing projects in file cabinets inside manila folders. Document control was filled with large file cabinets.

What a waste of paper.Thank goodness for Windows Explorer, database management, and online CAD drawing vaults. Save a tree!

Using Photoshop to create graphics

Photoshop is more then just a photo enhancing software program. You can create quality graphics and animations as well. Watch the animated GIF below to see how I put this file cabinet together. Tools I used are the Rectangular Marquee tool, the Free Transform tool, Transform-Perspective tool, Burn and Dodge tools, the Adjustment tools: Brightness-Contrast, Vibrance-Saturation, the Brush tool, and the Animation tool. The Folders graphics were created in and imported from Adobe Illustrator.

I used a similar file cabinet graphic above and just wanted to share how I created it.
