Hi, my name's Brent Fleming, I work for a residential design firm in Charleston, South Carolina and today I'm going to show you how to draw clean lines. Drawing a clean line is really very easy, all you need is a straight edge of some sort and a pen or pencil. The times when you want to use a clean line is when you're drawing something precise such as a floor plan, if you've measured a room and you're trying to draw that plan you'll want to, you'll want to use a straight edge and possibly and architects scale. So I'm going to ahead and show you how to draw a clean line and I'm going to for the sake of this exercise and this demonstration go ahead and draw a line that is to scale using the architects scale. So I'm going to use the half inch scale to draw a 10 foot line and the half inch scale, what that means is a half of an inch is equal to a foot in reality. So I'm going to make sure that I have my architects scale, I'm using the right, the right scale which is a half inch and then I'm going to make a mark at the 0 and then I'm going to make a mark at the 10 which indicates 10 feet. I'm going to have my, my architects scale positioned so that those two points are along the edge of the architects scale and then I'm going to just connect those two points using the architects scale as my straight edge and now I have a 10 foot line that's drawn at half inch scale and it's a clean line, it's really very easy. My name's Brent Fleming and thanks for watching.
