Parts of a Welding Drawing include the following:

Title Block. The title block contains the drawing number and all the information required to identify the part or assembly represented. Approved military prints will include the name and address of the Government Agency or organization preparing the drawing, the scale, the drafting record, authentication, and the date.

Revision Block. Each drawing has a revision block which is usually located in the upper right corner. All changes to the drawing are noted in this block. Changes are dated and identified by a number or letter. If a revision block is not used, a revised drawing may be shown by the addition of a letter to the original number.

Drawing Number. All drawings are identified by a drawing number. If a print has more than one sheet and each sheet has the same number, this information is included in the number block, indicating the sheet number and the number of sheets in the series.

Reference Numbers and Dash Numbers. Reference numbers that appear in the title block refer to other print numbers. When more than one detail is shown on a drawing, dashes and numbers are frequently used. If two parts are to be shown in one detail drawing, both prints will have the same drawing number plus a dash and an individual number such as 7873102-1 and 7873102-2.

Scale. The scale of the print is indicated in one of the spaces within the title block. It indicates the size of the drawing as compared with the actual size of the part. Never measure a drawing–use dimensions. The print may have been reduced in size from the original drawing.

Bill of Material. A special block or box on the drawing may contain a list of necessary stock to make an assembly. It also indicates the type of stock, size, and specific amount required.
