Autocad2014-400.jpg

One of the classic images of late 60s/early 70s television was architect-dad Mike Brady of The Brady Bunch seated at a drafting table designing his next masterpiece for a client. However, by the end of the decade, the advent of powerful desktop computers would transform the way drafting was done. The use of computer-aided drafting (or CAD) became a fast, accurate alternative to traditional hand drafting. Several small changes to a drawing could be made quickly that might have required a completely new drawing to be redone from scratch otherwise.
 
Building upon an existing CAD program previously designed by some of its co-founders, Autodesk released its first version of AutoCAD in December 1982. In the intervening thirty plus years, AutoCAD has become an indispensable tool for engineers, architects, and designers. A quick search of the job postings for AutoCAD-related jobs consistently reveals a demand for experienced professionals trained in its use. For those who choose to develop their skills, they create not only technical drawings but their own careers.
 
The College of Continuing and Professional Education at California State University Long Beach offers a comprehensive certificate in Engineering and Architectural AutoCAD using the latest release. Topics covered in the program include the basics (e.g. lines, grids, scales, entering coordinates), intermediate skills (e.g. editing, plotting, grouping objects into blocks), and more advanced techniques for greater precision and organization. Said one graduate of the certificate program, “By completing the AutoCAD Certificate Program, I now have the confidence to practice and discuss AutoCAD with even the most experienced CAD professionals.”
 
For more information about the next session of the program starting on Oct 6, go to the certificate program description page.

Much of the work today is done on computers as many new software have been developed that are used for drafting and doing other architecture job designs. So sound knowledge of all these is must to complete the work on time. The job of an architect is not done in isolation but it needs close liaison with other professionals like surveyors, engineers, construction workers and suppliers.

Thanks for informative article. I think that architects are still more confortable with traditional hand drafting. They can use paper to cad online services for digitization of blueprints to save their time. http://www.vectorizeimages.com/services/paper-to-cad

I think they're settling on magnificent specialized decisions. I'm idealistic that the seeds that the Freecad group is sowing will bloom into a top of the line CAD stage. I'm unquestionably going to look at this book. heavenly post!! anything related to gps based vehicle tracking system then visit http://eyesonwheel.in/tracking/
