Many people confuse Design and Drafting. Design is the planning needed to reach a creative and practical solution to your problems. Drafting is the essential skill necessary to pass your design solution information along to others. Even experienced CADD users often try to bypass the "design process" and go directly to final construction drawings. And fail.
Ensure your success before, during, and after using architectural CADD.
The good news is that in many states an architect’s involvement is required for most buildings (but often not required for residential and light commercial construction). This course can help builders, remodelers, designers, interns, students, and, yes, many architects, become proficient and successful... to ThinkCADD.
This Guidebook includes a real life project example to help you learn to ThinkCADD about the big picture: assemble project data – PREDESIGN – with sketches – DESIGN – to see how a design is reached – GRIDSHEETS – and sized to scale. Then use – CAD DESIGN DRAWINGS – to understand how Design Resolution Drawings are organized and approved before transition to – CAD CONSTRUCTION PLANS – for code permits and construction instructions.
You will save a lot of time and avoid the usual frustration of false starts and rework by beginning CAD Drafting at the right point... after Design.
Remember, it’s not about the brand of software... it is about what a user knows how to do with architectural software. CAD software is a very clever digital drawing tool to help you put all of your building information when and where it will best be used.
The purpose of 22 STEPS TO DIGITAL DRAFTING SUCCESS is to help you master your "design" skills to ensure your success. Become the expert drawing CAD House Plans no matter your current ability level.
