A mini drafter is an instrument that can be used for several functions in drawing. It has two arms that are adjustable to the required angle and at the lower arm’s end, a scale set is attached. The scale set contains two scales connected perpendicular to each which cannot be separated. This instrument is fixed to the drawing board at one edge using a screw provided for the drafter. A mini drafter is used for drawing:
- Horizontal lines
- Vertical lines
- Parallel lines
- Perpendicular lines
Today, in certain areas, like small construction groups, drawing is needed on drawing sheets. In such a situation, each engineering student needs to purchase a mini drafter within a span of a year. A Mini Drafter is a useful tool for civil and mechanical engineering students. Students of these branches absolutely need this tool when drawing. This tool helps them build a basic drawing concept and create a precise drawing. So this device has an essential role to play for the student of these branches, helping students draw a vertical line or very straight parallel line with any angle as per the requirement.
Mini drafter contains 2 movable parts and 1 non-movable part. The non-movable parts have a clamp-like holder, and a plastic head cap bolt, through which the device is fixed firmly with a drawing board so that it doesn‘t move at all while drawing the line.
