Vertical Text Orientation

Recommended Posts

Kremer

I tried a few different searches but couldn't find a CAD standard.

 

Is vertical text supposed to read from bottom to top, or top to bottom? Source material would be AWESOME! (not necessary though, just looking for some insight)

 

Hope all is well and your week is ending nicely!

I was taught bottom to top so when you turn the dwg(s) "paper sheets" in a binder to read, the binder will be at the top of the drafting table allowing you to flip the paper sheets up over the top of the table. However with computers things changes from 40+ years ago.

Drawings are read from the bottom edge or from the right edge, so for the right edge to work text must go from bottom to top.

I am confused as to which vertical text you are asking about :?

 

Is it text which is rotated 90 degrees or text applied vertically with one character on each line??
