Our technical illustrators prepare supporting graphics for
all authored technical material.
The illustrators develop artwork electronically on a wide
variety of native systems using the most recent releases of
In addition to providing most native file formats, we can
provide a variety of vector and raster formats according to
Our illustrators can render the most complex exploded views and
functionalized wiring diagrams. Our staff of technical
illustrators produces graphics from the simplest block diagrams
and line conversions to the most complex.
Satisfying stringent documentation requirements is
Our illustrations and wiring diagrams are often used to
and parts catalogs and operator manuals. See our newly expanded
website - www.DTB.com
describing DTB's Testing and Engineering & Analysis services as
well as the Technical Writing Services on this site.
We are expert in technical illustrating, graphic conversions, and software engineering to create 'smart' / intelligent graphics, illustrations which respond to actions
applied to them when viewed electronically.
Our illustrators apply unique coding to vector graphics
which then enables selected portions of the graphic to
be highlighted in a variety of ways.

Extended Features of Technical Illustrations
technical illustration experts
regularly prepare all kinds of drawings,
intelligent graphics, diagrams, charts,
exploded part views and more
in all types of graphical file formats.
components highlight in a schematic or
wiring diagram when the user brings their mouse over or
clicks on the illustrations.
Links continue across pages - multi-page drawings
link, continuing to highlight a selected circuit
from one page to the next, providing a coherent path
to the solution. Moreover, these highlights can activate from external programs like
IETMs or web pages so
that hypertext links in those documents activate
features on the intelligent graphic.
Our technical illustrators use COTS and specialized
software to develop final illustrations by
extracting and repurposing data from engineering
files for use in prepared documentation.
Graphic libraries are developed which result in schedule efficiencies and
Conversions of graphics from native authoring and
publishing systems are performed for inclusion into
documents and databases.
Our technical illustrators specialize in developing
true, mathematically-based, vector formats from
scanned or existing raster graphics. This
guarantees full vector compliance and re-usability
for future modifications and intelligent graphic
We have successfully completed this process for
tens-of-thousands of raster and composite
illustrations for both the U.S. Government and major DoD prime contractors.

An exploded view drawing is a type of
drawing that shows relational assemblies of
mechanical parts. It shows all parts of the
assembly and how they fit together.
Exploded diagrams are utilized to show parts
placement and the relationship of parts
in an assembly or sub-assembly. Usually such
diagrams have the part identification number
and a label indicating which part fills the
particular position in the diagram.
The exploded view drawing is used in
catalogs, assembly and maintenance manuals
and other instructional material.
