Huh... okay; I never would have known that - or at least it probably would have taken me some time to figure it out... thanks again!

Very true words, and something that a lot of degreed engineers don't appreciate.

The nice thing about mechanical is that you can wonder off into other things as you please. You can poke around three phase power, fugacity, or silicon doping for practical purposes, without having to suffer a year's worth of lectures on any one of them.

When I was with the Water Company I would run ideas by the guys that had to install what I was designing... the location of a door really matters when compared to the location of equipment inside the door.

desert.. it's those damn young engineers from really fancy colleges that have to be watched. I swear they get their degree and they think they can design anything. They are the ones that most often f' up things on job sites, skip things on design plans etc. I know.. I was one.

My personal favourite is sections being called off with the note "see plan for details" then flip to the plans and no information except said section mark.

Then spend the next 30 minutes on the phone with the engineer explaining that I need information, they keep saying see the section, which takes me back to the incomplete plan

Or when those sections are drawn in reverse. You really want to bang your f'n head on a the side of the truck/machine when that happens. I was an inspector for a local sewer authority for over a year... I saw several plans that were goofed and no one caught the mistakes.

Oh and another for you structural guys watching; when calling out moment connections, actually give us a value. none of this "oh just connect for the member capacity" BS. It's a 3 foot span, works out to be like 500 Kips

I can't seem to find that picture of the key/flag note that's in the actual foundation. There's a cloud in there too if I'm thinking of the right picture.
