COMPUTER GRAPHICS

A COMPUTER-GENERATED GRAPHICS SYSTEM (CONSTRUCTS) IS PRESENTED WHICH WAS DESIGNED FOR THE STRUCTURAL STEEL FABRICATION INDUSTRY. THE CONSTRUCTS SYSTEM PERFORMS BOTH STRUCTURAL DESIGN AND GRAPHIC CONSTRUCTION FUNCTIONS. THE GRAPHICS PHASE IS THE GENERATION OF STEEL SHOP DRAWINGS BY THE COMPUTER, AND COMPUTER-RELATED EQUIPMENT. CONSTRUCTS ILLUSTRATES THE FEASIBILITY OF PRODUCING LOW-VALUE, HIGH-VOLUME DRAWINGS IN AN ECONOMICAL MANNER BY AUTOMATED DRAFTING TECHNIQUES. ALTHOUGH THE PROJECT IS SUCCESSFUL, IT SHOULD BE NOTED THAT THE EFFORT REQUIRED TO EQUAL THE ADAPTIVE AND HIGHLY PRODUCTIVE HUMAN IN A GRAPHIC OPERATION IS SIGNIFICANT, MUST BE WELL-PLANNED TO SUIT THE PARTICULAR APPLICATION, AND SHOULD NOT BE TREATED LIGHTLY.
