Due to formatting, the drawing scale precision may not be perfect. All drawing projects have a light grid background which will be helpful to students.
Students can create color renderings of these projects after they have completed the elevations. Sample color renderings are included with the project. Students may select their own colors. All projects come with a drafting paper download that has the correct grid size background for each individual project.
