Benefits of Technical Illustrations
Technical illustrations are an essential part of the technical writing materials you develop for your customers. These illustrations make it easier for your clients to understand the products they purchase and will help them use and repair their products appropriately. You can use 3D isometric illustrations to give your customers a full view of the product to ensure they understand how each piece fits together. Illustrations enhance the usability of your technical documentation and often an effective illustration can replace writing text based procedural steps for advanced users.
Maintainers/ Technicians in the DOD, Commercial Aviation, Heavy Equipment / Off-Road industry supply chains use these illustrations to assist in:
- Removal and installation maintenance procedures
- Identifying and procuring parts for replacing failed components
- Troubleshooting and identifying location of components
- Diagnosing electrical faults
- Describing theory of operations
