SCRIBERS

 

Drawings screen-printed on to metal plates.

 

This work was based on a study of the two tier technical drawing system that operates within the shipyard whereby the Technical Office produce high definition drawings of ship’s structure using computer aided drawing (CAD) techniques whereas the fabrication workers translated these drawings using chalk diagrams on the workshop floor and on structures under manufacture in order to check dimensions and solve problems.
