Hi ,

I am a electrical design engineer working on a project on die casting machines. we have electrical drawings but they in a stage of falling apart. i tried to find a place to re draw these electrical drawings but couldn't find any.
Do anybody know a place where it can be re drawn?

kind regards

How big and how detailed are they, If they be scanned I would be pleased to have a go at redrawing them,

Hi Kevin,

It is A1 size.

Details are ok, but it is badly damaged some of the numbers are not easily seen.

I havent have a scanned copy yet but will surely send it to u once i scan it.

If you have access to an A4 scanner, I can work from A4 sections and "stitch" them together.

All I do is bring it into the CAD system as a layer then trace the details.

I can print in PDF with and without the original so you can proof read it.

Drawings are very difficult to quote on as time can dissapear on so many issues beyond the straight drawing.

I have retired and do drawings mainly for entertainment, hard to give up a good habit, so I have been charging $A50 for an A4 and $A100 for an A3 but I am happy to do the drawings and negotiate the price if any later.

Happy to discuss this outside the forum

Electrical Engineering requires drawing of electrical schematics and wiring diagrams. It also requires drawings for simulations and for documentation. Creating artwork for a PCB is also drawing. Using 3D CAD is becoming popular with many simulatiions tools especially for high frequency analysis. Drawing is a necessary part of Electrical Engineeing.
