From experience (I actually had my first dismal one today), how do you handle poorly dimensioned drawings -- drawings that do not have the dimensions necessary to manufacture, design tooling, or redraw without fair struggle? The customer did not have any other drawings to share. I went ahead and discussed it with a few of the related parties that I work with about what is required for the part. Angles, flange lengths and center points locations were missing, just to name a few. Thankfully a more skilled and experienced coworker was able to draw a close mock-up for it (I plan to interrogate his thought process and drawing thoroughly). It was a strap handle that is to be welded on to a frame so we had some freedoms with the particulars.
