BEYOND DRAFTING- DRAFTSMAN PLUS- LAYOUT MAN
My role as a Technical Designer has moved beyond draftsman to layout man as well. I use the computer to do layout work I used to do on my knees on the shop floor. I incorporate my years of experience designing and building scenery to create accurate CNC scratch template full-scale layouts and orthographic projections from deconstructed 3D models. My workflow consists of using AutoCAD, SketchUp, Rhino, and VectorWorks either as stand-alone programs or using them in combination. I produce 3D models, renderings, fabrication drawings, full-scale layouts and parts.
