This part of the compendium outlines the application of paraline drawing systems and how they are used by the different design fields to communicate information to enable other specialists, such as builders and industry manufacturers to construct or manufacture products and architectural environments to suit a designer or client's needs.

Paraline Drawing Systems can be complicated to master as they require the application of mathematics for measurement, cognitive ability to mentally rotate and construct 3-Dimensional forms in your head and of course, finetuned hand-eye coordination skills to draw and control multiple drawing instruments all at one time.

When drawn instrumentally, Paraline Drawing Systems must adhere to strict standards. To assist students with this, the compendium provides you with information based on the Australian Standards (AS1100) for Technical Drawing and explains the Paraline Drawing Systems of Orthogonal Projection, Isometric Drawing, Oblique Drawing, Planometric and the application of dimensioning, scale, and sectioning. Additionally, each section is clearly highlights the different standards that apply to engineering, architecture, textiles and packaging design.
