Sketch Quality To create good quality sketches, use the correct grades of lead and keep your pencil sharpened. Sketches use different line weights (thicknesses) to show the relative importance of different lines. The object you are drawing should be thick and black in the sketch so that it stands out from the dimensions, notes, and other lines. It is the subject of your drawing and should be communicated clearly.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
