    Mechanical engineers work on a variety of different equipment and components. Mechanical engineers design automotive parts, bridge supports, and a variety of other objects. These designs are then turned into technical drawings called blueprints. A blueprint is a two-dimensional representation of the object being designed. Most parts being designed can’t be represented on a single page, so most blueprints come in sets. In this quiz you can test your knowledge of blueprints in general and the specific information you will find on a mechanical engineering blueprint.
