In addition to everything we’ve seen so far, you can use Inkscape to create simple technical drawings. Let’s try drawing an isometric image of a cross-section of an engine part (Figure 23-13). Inkscape does not intend to replace a real computer-aided design (CAD) application. It may be more straightforward to create such a technical drawing in a CAD program—but only if you have it and know how to use it. In most other cases, Inkscape is a natural choice due to its graphic power and versatility that can make your drawings not only precise but also visually impressive.
