Architectural Drafting for Interiors serves as an essential reference for interior designers learning how to manually draft scaled floor plans, elevations, sections and three-dimensional drawings. Clearly explaining techniques and methods, Cavataio shows how to start each drawing and offers exercises that help build skill for drafting various components. This complete learning package begins with an explanation of the drafting tools and their use, and then presents instructions and illustrations that indicate how to complete increasingly more difficult drafting conventions. In addition, readers will learn drawing techniques for indicating various materials, symbols for coordinating related drawings and architectural lettering.
