Hi, I'd like to up my game a bit. I'm looking for some advice, tips, recommendations etc on how I can improve my laying out of my drawings. I am not an architect, interior designer I have never received any formal training. However I am conscious that my drawings lack a professional feel to them. Spacing, scales of the viewports, dimensions, text sizes, use of different line types/weights, shadows, annotations and labels (section/elevation markers), generally creating neat and tidy and well proportioned drawings that are pleasant to look at. All the sorts of things a good draftsperson knows about! I design audio visual systems which require me to produce schematics (which I use the excellent VW ConnectCAD for) and they are relatively simple line drawings which I can drop into a Vp and that's about it, but I also need to show equipment positioning in plan, section and elevation along with some detailing. compared to the project architect's drawings mine definitely look amateurish. Are there any good books (remember them?), on-line courses/videos that anyone can recommend? All advice gratefully appreciated, R
