The Importance of Scanning Engineering Drawings

Comments Off on The Importance of Scanning Engineering Drawings
Scanning engineering drawings is an important step in the documentation and preservation of valuable engineering information. Engineering drawings, also known as technical drawings or blueprints, contain detailed information about a product, structure, or system. Having Micro Com Systems scan these drawings offers several significant benefits:
  1. Digital Preservation: Engineering drawings are often created on paper or other physical mediums, which will deteriorate over time due to humidity, light exposure, or physical wear and tear. Scanning these drawings into digital formats ensures their long-term preservation, preventing loss due to physical degradation.
  2. Ease of Access: Digital copies of engineering drawings can be stored and organized in a digital database or document management system. This makes it easy for engineers, designers, and others to access and retrieve drawings quickly. It eliminates the need for manually searching through physical archives, reducing the risk of misplacement or loss.
  3. Collaboration and Sharing: Digital copies can be easily shared with team members regardless of their location. This facilitates collaboration and allows multiple parties to work on a project simultaneously.
  4. Annotation and Markup: Digital drawings can be easily annotated and marked up using software tools, allowing engineers and designers to add notes, comments or suggestions directly on the drawing. 
  5. Security: Digital copies of engineering drawings can be protected with encryption and access controls, ensuring that proprietary information is kept secure. Physical copies can be vulnerable to theft or unauthorized access.
  6. Searchability: Digital copies can be indexed and tagged with metadata, making it easy to search for specific drawings based on criteria such as project name, date, or part number. This significantly reduces the time and effort required to locate relevant information.  Micro Com Systems can assist in the tagging of the metadata.
  7. Integration with CAD and Design Software: Scanned drawings can be imported into computer-aided design (CAD) and other design software for further modification.
