On the basis of the two development reports on graphics, the inheritance of the science and discipline of engineering graphics was particularly discussed, and its orientation and development in the computing era were also explored. The theories, methods, and technologies of engineering graphics, as well as descriptive geometry, were reviewed, revealing the rigorous theories and scientific values implied in its unambiguous expression and engineering computing. In the computing era, discussions were conducted on some new forms that have found their way from engineering graphics to computer graphics. The commonalities of these two major branches of graphics were analyzed, especially their supporting role for CAD regarding graphic thinking and computational thinking. With these common foundations as the core, the engineering application as the guide, and scientific research and talent training as the goal, explorations were pursued on the establishment of a disciplinary development framework for engineering graphics integrating with multiple thinking modes.

Key words: graphics, engineering graphics, descriptive geometry, graphics computing thinking
