- Lines used on prints
- Print sizes
- Title block, including scale, tolerances, and revisions
- Views and visualization
- Section views and their types
- Dimensioning, including placement, angular and circular, and dual dimensioning
- Assembly drawings, including application blocks
- Screw thread representations, including form and class
- Machining specifications, including holes, edges, necks, and undercuts
- Surface texture symbols and specifications
All manufacturing personnel, including operators, technicians, and supervisors
