    Crash course?

    1) look at prints
    2) they will be in a scale i.e. 1/4 inch=1 foot
    3) they will have a legend that tells you what the different symbols on the drawings mean
    4) they will have a general set on instructions andequipment listings


    That's about as crash as I can get
    If everything was always done "by the book"....the book would never change.

    well , you have got your lines and then your hidden lines--

    ---------and your section lines[ ]



    you cannot get a crash course in reading prints on the internet, and if you are looking for a book , you will need one on electricial symbols , mechanicial Drawing , plumbing , electronic schematics and welding symbols


    A crash course? shouldnt take more than a few minutes to master all of that, after all , it's not rocket science , right
