REFURBISHING OF MECHANICAL ENGINEERING DRAWING STUDIO
This project is concerned write the identification of those defects that are found in most of the drawing tables in the Mechanical Engineering drawing studio.
The report investigates the possible ways through which the mentioned above can be brought back to normal standard for usage ins the department.
Defects comes up due to inability to renovate and also inability of proper usage.
There may be scratches over the table top, breakage in the legs joining or even breakages in the joints found before the tabletop. Before renovating, the location of the symptom and the kind of materials involved are put into consideration.
