Article Body:
From the massive skyscrapers in New York City and the tallest building in
the United Emirates to the millions of cars driven on the road everyday
and the electronics that consume everyone's life, computer aided drafting
plays a part in shaping each of these entities. Also known as computer
aided design, this form of drafting plays a vital role in every aspect of
the design and manufacturing process. Without this career field, the
world would not be as advanced as it is today and the process of creating
new ideas and buildings would be an even more difficult process.

Constructing elaborate buildings and designing innovate automobiles
requires a lot of time and important details that most people are not
aware of. To help complete these projects, computer aided drafting is
used. It is primarily used in architectural design, mechanical design, as
well as customization and programming. However, there are many fields
that require computer drafting and design. Drafters use computer programs
to create products, such as buildings or automobiles by creating two-
dimensional designs, technical drawings, three dimensional models or
prototypes.

The type of software used with computer drafting has come along way since
its first inception, and the program used depends on the type of results
the end user would like to achieve. There are programs available for
every need, such as animation, freeform surface modeling, engineering
models and three-dimensional parametric modeling, among other programs.
Each program is uniquely designed for the task at hand.

Not only can computer aided drafting systems create models, but it can
work as a database as well. A lot of times when architects or engineers
are creating products, there is a lot of data and calculations involved
in the process. Many of these systems are able to do calculations to help
with the development of the products. They can also import and export
data to various programs allowing users to easily display information for
individuals who do not have access to a system, but still need the
information. Most systems are also automated, which makes the process of
creating a project easier for the user. By having automated software,
users can input information about the product and let the software begin
the process.

In order to become a drafter or designer, individuals need the proper
education and training. This would include attending a college or
university to obtain a bachelor's degree in computer aided drafting.
While in school students will learn the important aspects of drafting.
This includes knowledge in how to create models and drawings using the
necessary software, how to customize using the computer equipment, how to
develop three-dimensional designs and various other skills necessary for
the career field.

Students will also gain real world experience in this career field, which
allows them to develop a portfolio of work. Once a student begins the job
search, it is important to have an established portfolio that displays
the work they have completed. It shows that not only does the student
have the basic knowledge of this career field, but also is able to take
the knowledge he or she learned in the classroom and implement it in real
job functions. If a potential employer interviews one graduate who has
excellent grades in a computer aided drafting program, but has no
practical experience and interviews another graduate who also has
excellent grades, but has an established portfolio from practical
experience, the employer is most likely going to choose the experienced
candidate. It just goes to show how important it is for students to gain
hands on experience.
