In general, technical illustrations describe and explain subjects to a nontechnical audience. Therefore, the visual image should be accurate in terms of dimensions and proportions, and should provide an overall impression to the audience. Depending on the task, we create drawings (also explosion graphics) from CAD data as a line implementation of the photo or dimetry directly from the product itself.
Advantages of technical illustrations:
Technical illustrations are often used for design presentations, catalogues, sales literature, in a store, or at trade shows to present all the details of a product. Technical illustrations can be created based on construction documents, even if the product does not exist yet .
Technical illustration: Manual
Technical illustrations are essential for product and installation instructions, esp. with regard to technical and complex products. If you want to exchange product components such as the engine or the gearbox, the technical illustrations help the viewer to understand every detail. Therefore, you will find this kind of conventional line illustrations in the standard product documentation or repair manuals.
