A compass is a drawing instrument used in engineering drawing to draw arcs, circles, and curves with precision. It consists of two arms, one with a pointed end and the other with a pencil or pen holder. By adjusting the distance between the arms and rotating the compass around a fixed point, engineers and designers can create circles of various sizes and arcs of specific angles. The compass enables accurate representation of curves and circular features in technical drawings.
