Top Drafting related questions

What is a draftsman?

A draftsman, also known as a drafter, is the technician in charge of creating technical drawings and plans. This includes the specifications of a structure or mechanism. Drafters may work with architects, scientists, or engineers and may also be in charge of assessing structural strength and building costs. Drafters typically use computer-aided design and drafting (CADD) procedures, drafting pencils, and T-squares in order to create these plans.

Do I need an architect or a draftsman?

The primary difference between them: architects can offer both technical and artistic advice to your team, while a draftsman is primarily concerned with the technical aspects of your project. Draftsmen can provide construction-ready drawings, complete with all the technical specifications. Unfortunately, they won’t be able to evaluate your project as a whole or contribute major changes to its design, layout, or flow. If you’re thinking of hiring an architect as well, you can use Airtasker to find an expert near you.

Can a draftsman design a house?

Yes and no. While a draftsman can create the blueprints based on design, an architect must create the design first. A draftsman usually works with or for an architect. Once the architect has visualised the house (including aspects such as the use of space, flow, and engineering), the draftsman converts the design into technical specifications that the construction company can use.

How do I pick the right draftsman for my building plans?

When hiring a draftsman, look for the following: industry knowledge, experience, and communication skills. The first quality includes their technical skills and knowledge of building codes and policies. Their experience can also tell you if they are a good fit for your project. It’s good to ask them if they have handled anything similar to your plans. Lastly, make sure you work with someone who will listen to you, give you sound advice, and help you translate your vision.

What does a draftsman service include?

Airtasker’s draftsman service connects you with a trusted drafter in your area. This draftsman can help you translate your vision into ready for construction blueprints (ideally, with the help of an architect). If you are booking this type of service for the first time, here’s what’s included:

Consultation for drafting services

If you already have a grand vision for your project, a drafter can help you convert it into blueprints that engineers can approve and construction companies can execute. Do take note that their consultancy field is limited; unlike architects, they cannot give a “holistic” vision for your project. The most that they can do is give minor tweaks to your idea and put it down on paper.

It would be best to consult with an architect before approaching a drafter with your plans. Your drafter may also have some architect colleagues to recommend, so you can ask them about this, too.

Creating technical drawings using CAD or traditional drafting

Drafters usually create technical plans or blueprints using computer-aided drafting and design (CADD). They may also use more traditional means, such as papers, pencils, and T-squares. Either way, they provide a very specific and calculated plan that a construction team can readily execute. If you have preferences as to how you want your technical drawings done, you can specify this in your task post.

Working with architects and engineers

The job of a draftsman involves working with architects, engineers, or even scientists. If you have already contacted an engineer and architect, you can hire a draftsman via Airtasker to complete your team. Our platform connects you with available drafters in your area so that you don’t need to look far or wait long before setting an appointment.

Beyond the home: other draftsman services

While a lot of people usually look for drafting services in relation to residential house plans, drafters can actually work with a lot of other industries. They can help you put up a commercial building, design a piece of machinery, help put together consumer goods, and even build rockets. Since their forte is in technical specifications, they are experts in putting things together and repairing them if they fall apart.
