What Does a Draftsman Do?
Firstly there are many different drafting specialities including the like of aeronautical draftsmen, civil draftsmen, electrical drafters etc. At Yolk Building Design and Drafting our draftsmen are architectural drafters. As architectural drafters our draftsmen specialise in architectural buildings and structures, mostly residential and commercial and sometimes industrial.
What Does a Draftsman Do?
According to Wikipedia a draftsman “is a person who prepares technical drawings and plans under the direction of an architect or engineer.”
This definition is, in our opinion not really that accurate. In actual fact a good draftsman has a great deal of skill and can work independently to produce the technical drawings required.
The definition provided by Study.com is we believe more accurate: “Draftsmen, also called drafters, perform some of the same tasks as architects and often work with architects.”
