What is architecture drawing?
Architecture drawing is drawn by hand or produced digitally is a technical drawing that shows the design of a building or a product.

Cut sheets and details contain a wealth of project information, including dimensions, notes, and directions. This specifically intends to direct construction techniques.

Different types of engineering drawings are isometric drawing, multiview drawing, dimensioning, sectioning, assembly drawings, cross-sectional views, and half sections.
