This project has developed a microcomputer-based interactive Graphics Software System for the production of engineering drawings. The drawings, stored in a digital format, can be recalled and updated much faster than by using conventional drawing methods. This allows for increased production and a standardized drawing format.
The system was designed to be easy to use so that with little training, a user can create, edit, plot, and save drawings for later retrieval. In addition, an open architecture was used in the design of the drawing database and program command structure so that the system can be easily expanded upon as the need arises.
The software, developed for the IBM Personal Computer using the TURBO PASCAL Compiler, has been implemented and hard copy results are presented in order to demonstrate the system’s capabilities.
