Plan & Elevation View

Architects and engineers use sketches as a way to communicate and convey their designs to others. The types of drawings most commonly used are plan and elevation views. The plan view, or bird’s eye view, is the view seen looking down on the object. The elevation view is the view from one side of the object. Engineers and architects also use rough drawings and scaled drawings. Rough drawings are hand drawn drawings that are not drawn to scale. Scaled drawings use scale to make an object smaller or larger than it actually is.
