At A Glance: Drafting
When working on a project that requires a high degree of accuracy, requires multiple manufacturing processes, or a number of different workers, it is important to communicate every possible aspect of the project to each person or department involved. This communication is best done with technical drawings that represent different parts and functions in a standardized way. Drafting is the process of creating these highly technical drawings and their specific materials and measurements of an object or project. Drafting is used in the production and execution of all industries, from architecture to automotive manufacturing. If you or your business frequently produce new designs or products, working with a professional draftsman can give you the flexibility you need to stay competitive.
Until somewhat recently, drafting was done by hand through a highly dexterous and skilled drafter who would produce the drawings needed for a project. From those drawings, manufacturers, construction foremen, and others would fabricate the required materials and objects. These days, most drafting is done by computer-aided design (CAD) software. An expert draft specialist can take the specifications of any project you may have from designers and engineers, and quickly produce multiple drafts or schematics that can be used to accurately reproduce your project via almost any manufacturer. Working with an expert drafting specialist allows you to focus your attention on the design and implementation phases of your project while confidently knowing that your end product will be produced to your exact standards every time.
