I haven't put a copy here because I'm not sure of the protocol etc regarding posting other peoples YouTube videos. Anyway, check out the video, I enjoyed it, and I congratulate the cast and crew for filming it.
Whenever I look at architectural drawings I am often reminded just how different their drawing is to the mechanical drawing that I was taught. I always assumed architects just had another set of rules for their drawing. This video really brings that home. As I watched it, I was struck by just how different (wrong) it all was to me - back in my classes this demonstrtion would have got a really big F for Fail. My tutors would have gone crazy.
I assume that architects will find nothing particularly wrong about this video, but what about the engineers out there? Is it just me? Am I the odd one out? Was I taught so differently to other engineers?
For the record, here's a quick list of some things I jotted down as I watched the video, but I wouldn't say it's exhaustive.
- Variable line widths, using a chisel edge - always a big No No in my classes.
- Stylised lettering, letterforms not always vertical/horizontal, open letterforms, variable height & width.
- Arrowheads not closed, incorrect length to width ratio, points not meet.
