Drafting/Drawing Board

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

I am interesting in finding a drafting/drawing board to do architectural drawing.  I am in Marikina in metro Manila and am tire of hearing that ,"It is not available"  Anyone know of an office supply store with those near here ?

I don't even know anyone who uses them anymore.  Kind of like an abacus these day.

I use Sketchup

I'm Old School, used them in high school and college.  using the computer is fine but finding a program and graphics is more of a pain than sitting in the quiet with a drafting board and pencil. like the saying goes,'Keep It Simple'

I definitely agree with that.  Its just that my idea of simple is "Plug n Play" not search all day.

:tiphat: Here's to old school!   Good luck with your search.

I respect your dedication to craft. 

I’m old enough to remember all our prints and drawing were handmade.

I’ll make a quick orthographic sketch at work once in awhile and the youngsters will think it’s some kinda magic trick.

Yes, that was back when rednecks really did have sunburnt red necks. :hystery:
