With technical illustration we can visually communicate information of a technical nature via line drawings, graphics and cutaway views of a product. Accuracy and understanding of the product is very important in their production.
Commonly our customers request us to develop maintenance manuals, exploded illustrations for parts lists as well as brochure and web advertising.
Line illustrations can be produced from:
—Customers 2D drawings (using this method the illustrator needs a very good knowledge of interpreting 2D views to create perspective or isometric drawings).
—From 3D files
—Is some cases direct access to the product.
A lifeless illustration can now be made more interesting by making it into an inter active file. By the use of roll overs areas of the illustration can be made to show extra information such as part numbers, assembly instructions and videos.
The files displayed in this way require a PDF viewer and in the case of embedded videos Flash player.
Two examples of basic technical illustration.
The first shows the attaching parts exploded and marked by their position numbers.
In the bottom left corner the parts location is shown in an over all view.
The second shows a complete exploded view with parts marked by position numbers.
The next two illustrations show examples of interactive position numbers showing their manufacturing part numbers.
The last two examples show the same illustrations with the interactive parts roll over and video link.
