Top Draftsman related questions

For certain types of tasks, you may need to enquire as to what draftsman licenses may be required to undertake your task as this can vary. Please make sure that you confirm that a Tasker has the relevant licence and insurance before accepting an offer.

When designing your new office or working on a home project, it is easy to confuse drafters and architects. An architect usually spends more than five years earning his degree. Meanwhile, a drafter has four years of formal college education before working. The most significant possible difference is that drafters can create construction-ready drawings compared to architectural designs.

A clear vision of how you want the final turn-out will be number one on this list. Not knowing what you want to happen to your property can lead to overall dissatisfaction and numerous revisions. So prepare a rough sketch of what you want, a budget in mind for the drafting fee, and enough cash for other costs like documentation and permits.

Not necessarily. Most drafters, especially the more experienced ones, still use manual drafting and sketching when they need it. However, knowing CAD drafting makes things faster and easier in the course of business. The CAD system is also now used by most contractors, so not using this computer software can be a disadvantage.

The short technical answer is yes, it is possible. However, this can lead to inaccuracies, especially if the measurements provided are incorrect. Also, some details might be left out, like the placement of sockets for a house renovation or an old fixture that needs to be demolished. It’s best to schedule a visit from your draftsman before starting anything.

This depends on your location. Most areas only require that a draftsman finish an associate degree or a certification course on drafting. Most companies and contractors also require proficiency in computer-aided design and drafting software before working with drafters. It’s best to contact your local council to check if there’s any permit or licencing required before you choose a draftsman.

It depends. Once they have already hired an architect and an engineer, some do away with hiring a draftsman as long as both suppliers can draft. However, there might be instances wherein a third person, like a professional draftsman, can marry the design ideas of an architect and the structural foundation laid out by an engineer. 

What do draftsman services include?

A draughtsperson plays an important role in building the space or furniture that you want. A drafter is responsible for making detailed technical drawings or plans for commercial buildings, infrastructure, sections, and even furniture or machinery. 

Part of the job includes gathering specifications of the property or the item’s size then calculating the necessary material and equipment for the project. Afterwards, they draw the technical plan or use computer-aided design software to lay it out. Having a draftsman helps you prepare for all the needed construction. An industrial draftsman can have different specialisations, including:

Architectural drafting

Architectural drafting is still a vast area altogether, with a draftsman working on residential and commercial properties. They can help maximise the space and ensure that the design follows your needs before building and construction. This is ultimately an excellent investment for any property owner because it helps avoid costly re-dos of the desired style. If your budget is tight, you can look for a part-time draftsman for your home project.

Furniture drafting

A furniture drafter works with designers and makers to help layout how to build a piece of furniture. They can help turn a creative design into an actual chair or table by providing the list of materials needed and specifying the sizes for each. Most furniture brands hire a full-time draftsman to help them mass-produce items or ensure that higher-end products are put together correctly the first time. Furniture drafters also work closely with interior designers when customising pieces.

Machine drafting

Machine drafting is complicated and expensive. Drafters who specialise in working with machinery are highly paid because of their knowledge and attention to detail. The drawings are used in identifying the components and assembly working from smaller parts to the final machine. Some drafters work with electrical and electronics as well.

Structural drafting

Structural drafting can be easily confused with architectural drafting. It refers to drawing the design for steel buildings, bridges, dams, towers and other similar structures. The patterns can also be used for particular parts of a home or office, such as downspouts, water tanks, air conditioning ducts and chimneys. These mostly use iron, copper or steel aluminium as the primary material. Take note that drafters who can create 3D models may charge more.
