Graphics in CDT

  • Peter Gowers Edge Hill College of Higher Education


The more I looked at the title 'Graphics in CDT', the more certain I became of the need to first of all define what is meant by the word 'graphics'. Technical graphics and graphical communication can be regarded as developments of traditional technical drawing where highly accurate and predominantly twodimentional finished drawings are produced. We need, however, a much wider definition relevant to the whole of CDT. I would therefore suggest that a working definition could be taken to mean methods of visual communication, both two - and threedimensional, which are used to aid the developments and mock-ups. I would also include methods which are used to communicate the final solution such as sequence drawings, presentation renderings, production drawings and prototypes.
