I'd like to learn more about guns and planes, while also learning how to draw my own raw sketches. What are some good beginner books on this or how is this art/craftmanship even called?
>>40568934Designing and building guns is gunsmithing.Drawing gun designs in a way that can be used to produce a real item is Draftsmanship/Drafting/Technical Drawing.
>>40568934Actually designing them is called Engineering. The drawings are called mechanical drawings or blueprints.
>>40568963>>40568979I guess what I meant was drawing blueprints.
>>40569044That is called "Drafting" like >>40568963 said. Nowadays it is done almost exclusively on a computer usually in AutoCAD. Although new work is done in a solid modeling program like Solidworks now because it is more useful.
