In which situation do we need drawing comparisons?
At work, when the designer sends a drawing, remarks: This is a new drawing that I have revised, please follow this drawing to construct. At this time, are you looking dumbfounded, and it is not clear what has been changed, the construction project has already started, what if the construction is wrong?
