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.
