What does a draftsman do?
Draftsmen, also called architectural technicians, perform some of the same tasks as architects and often work in conjunction with architects. Draftsmen, like architects, also prepare CAD drawings, including technical details and specifications of materials dimensions and procedures. However, drafting can be applied to many other areas besides construction and architecture. Draftsmen can also produce drawings of circuitry, piping and other mechanical designs.
In the architectural profession the draftsman specialises in the technical documentation of a project. This forms only a small part of the architect’s overall process and responsibility.
