The title block of a drawing contains:
the drawing title
the drawing number
location, site, or vendor issuing the drawing
the design, review, and approval signatures
the reference block
The grid system of a drawing allows information to be more easily identified
using the coordinates provided by the grid. The coordinate letters and/or
numbers break down the drawing into smaller blocks.
The revision block of a drawing provides the revision number, a title or summary
of the revision, and the date of the revision, for each revision.
The notes and legend section of a drawing provides explanations of special
symbols or conventions used on the drawing and any additional information the
designer or draftsman felt was necessary to understand the drawing.
