Tip of the Month - Part no. Description
This tip follows on from last months tip on the part no. formatting.
When I left school years ago, I took up a draughting position for the government. When being trained on the creating of part names this is one area where I just could not get it right initially. Not only were my part descriptions in they were in the wrong order, they were inconsistent.
The most important part of a part no. should come first, followed by the size (the primary dimension first if applicable), then the material.
For example: Bolt, M10x100, Galvanised.
