Skillsets required in 2D CAD drafting

Architectural Engineering is now experiencing a boom. Not just the architecture and the civil industry but major industries around the world are opting for 2D architectural drafting services.

As the demand for these supply increases, the demand for qualified CAD drafters also increase. In this blog post, we will see what are the skill sets required for CAD drafters.

For creating CAD drafting Services, the first and the foremost skill required is that of fluency in AutoCAD and other CAD softwares. CAD software’s are used to create the drawings and the blueprints for creating structural models, be it buildings, interiors or any other product design. Nowadays, 2D CAD drafts are used even to create vehicle, microchips and machine designs. With passing time, the scope for this 2D CAD drafting is increasing.

Any person wanting to work in this field could enter through various ways. Engineers, Draftsmen, architects, illustrators, estimators, designers etc all can come together and collaborate to create a great architectural drafting. Even in engineering a CAD draftsmen work for civil engineering, architecture and entertainment i.e. animations.

It is very challenging to become a great 2D drafting, as one needs to combine creativity and spatial relationships with logic, mathematics and analytical thinking. Only when these two are combined properly, a person can create a good design. Imagination is the key to a good draftsman. He should be able to visualize the design properly in order to make a good 2D draft.

But more than all this, experience is what separates a great draftsman from others. The fineness comes only with time and patience.
