Abstract : The evaluation was conducted to determine the adequacy of new drafting equipment now commercially available for use in producing axonometric drawings. Also the feasibility of beginning to implement the wide usage of the axonometric concept for engineering drawings and Transportation Packaging Orders (TPOs) within the Air Force was investigated. As the result of this study, a drafting system for preparing engineering drawings and TPOs has emerged. The dimensioning system used was adapted from MIL-STD-100 and the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) Manual +14.5. The combining of the drafting and the dimensioning system is herein called the 'true-position engineering drafting system'. (Author)
