Mechanical Pencils are predominantly used in technical drawing and fine art drafting as they are able to produce stokes of a constant width without the need for laborious sharpening. They come in a range of different lead sizes and generally leads from 0.2mm to 0.5mm are used as drafting pencils and anything above are used for general writing. However 0.5mm leads do provide a cross over as are great for both general writing and beginners drafting.
