  • Hi Justin,

    Based on my research, there isn't too many official articles to introduce how to design Engineering Drawings/Graphics in Visio step by step. 

    If you want to learn how to design Visio Engineering Drawings/Graphics in Visio, there is a PDF for your reference: (Visio_2010)_Using_Visio_for_Architecture_and_Engineering.pdf. It seems to be a part of a book called "Visio Bible". 

    Please Note: Since the web site is not hosted by Microsoft, the link may change without notice. Microsoft does not guarantee the accuracy of this information.

    Hope the information was helpful. Any updates, feel free to let us know.

    Best Regards,

  • I cant find book named "Visio 2010 Bible". Only for 2000, 2003 and 2007 !

    Visio have limited opportunities for create engineering graphics.

  • 2007 is the last version of the Visio Bible (I was the technical editor). It is a good general reference for Visio users. For serious Visio Developers, you need some of Graham Wideman's books and follow Visio Guy's forums. 

    Another good reference is DVS. Depending on the edition, that is Developing Visio Shapes or Developing Visio Solutions.

    So, Engineering/ Architectural drawings as Surrogate already asked, be more specific. Visio is more known for business graphics like orgcharts, flowcharts and ERDs, but Visio can handled scaled engineering drawings, but only in 2D.

    So, without details, it is hard to answer. I could suggest a pencil as an Engineering drawing tool, but I think you want more.
