2 Paper size and orientation When you start to plan your drawing you have to decide on the paper size that you are going to use. Engineering drawings are usually produced on ‘A’ size paper. Paper size A0 is approximately 1 m2 in area and is the basis of the system. Size A1 is half the area of size A0, size A2 is half the area of size A1 and so on down to size A4. Smaller sizes are available but they are not used for drawing. 414. 11. 13 How many A5 sheets of paper can be cut from a single sheet of A3 drawing paper?

The body is to have drop sides, middle and end removable support pillars, and a removable tailboard. The body should be treated with at least two coats of primer and finished in light orange high-gloss paint. Fuel tank The fuel tank should have a minimum capacity of 300 I and should be fitted with a lockable fuel cap. Tachograph The vehicle should be fitted with a tachograph. The vehicle must also be fitted with a speed limiter if the speed capability is greater than 52 mph. Electrical system The vehicle should be fitted with a 24 V electrical system for starting and lighting.

For now, you only need to be aware that designing something involves a series of tasks and each of these forms an important stage in reaching your eventual goal, an engineered product or an engineered service. 2 shows the design process described only in terms of the key words that relate to each of the individual stages. 1 Think about an engineered product that you use in everyday life such as a bicycle, a hi-fi system or a DVD player. Write down a list of three or four features or improvements that you would like to incorporate in the product.
