Drawing Library

All the drawings in the LineMine Drawing Library are of things that can be made.

Most projects are available as PDF files, which will always have the distinctive PDF logo in front of the document name.

Some projects are also available as CAD files, which can be itentified by the DWG file name at the end of the document name.

There are also a number of drawings as 3D SketchUp files which are denoted by the word Model at the end of the document name.

Drawing Courses

LineMine also provides advice and courses on drawing software.

The drawing programs are chosen as the best in their class, and have to be FREE to download, in recognition that most makers only use computer drawing occasionally.

Online courses are available on SketchUp, a free 3D modelling program, DraftSight, a free CAD program, and coming soon, courses on Inkscape, a free graphics program.
