Set of Different pencils 

Engineering Drawing Pencils has Different variety and each variety is used for a Specific Purpose in the engineering Drawing

Here is the List of Different types of Pencils used in Engineering Drawing

Pencils are classified in a sequence Depending upon the grade: 9H, 8H, 7H, 6H, 5H, 4H, 3H, 2H, H, F, HB, B, 2B, 3B, 4B, 5B, 6B, 7B, 8B, 9B, 9xxB. Common drawing kits typically encompass the range from 2H to 6B as these grades cover a broad spectrum of techniques essential for various drawing requirements

Different Types of Pencils according to Grade

Drawing sheets

The white sheets on which Technical and engineering Drawing are Drafted are called Drawing sheets, these are Available in a variety of Dimensions in which A2 size is Mostly Preferred for Engineering Purposes
