A Draftsperson is responsible for creating technical drawings used for construction or manufacturing purposes. Their designs are used to develop various structures and products such as buildings, aircraft and electronic devices. Given that Draftspeople work in a diverse range of sectors, their specific role will depend on the industry that they work in.
A Draftsperson can create drawings using a CADD (computer-aided design and drafting) system, or paper and pencil. Modern Draftspeople are typically skilled in both techniques and will also be responsible for performing field work, collecting and analysing data, estimating material costs and conducting laboratory tests.
