    Reading drawings - that's why we should all do 3D/Inventor to make sure there are always nice exploded 3D views etc to help the 'workshop guys' read our drawings right.

    or should drawings go down there origami style so they can see how to MILTFD?

    anyway - you can't do that in electrical - the drawings make as much sense as a London underground map

    THE PROPER TERM IS "MILTFD-41"
    THIS IS A TERM THAT WENT AROUND A LONG TIME AGO.
    WHAT IT MENT WAS:
    "Make It Like The F'n Drawing Four Once" the short version - just drop the "four once"
    When there was actual checkers, the designers and draftsment used to put it on the drawing to see if the checkers were doing their job.

    Everyone in the States uses 3rd angle. Not sure what countries use 1st angle.

    In Inventor you can toggle it to generate one or the other so someone is using 1st angle.

    Trig, my favorite subject.

    Geometry comes in a close second.

    As a fabricator, steel, we worked to drawings and had no need for math.
    All was on the drawings, to scale, exact. Still fun being a steel fabricator.

    Angles, lengths, structural shapes, all on the drawings. Piece of cake!

    Dear larryspc


    I am a non-native English speaker member of this forum.
    I didn't understand the meaning of MILTFD. If possible please give some more explanation on MILTFD with 41 and wo 41

    Also I didn't understand the story behind 1-st angle and 3-rd angle. If it doesn't bother, please explain for non-natives. Thanks
