RE: construction Drawings

My suggestion is to learn to do it yourself. Drafting is an integral part of
engineering, and sometimes it is the most fun part of the design. Knowing
how to use CADD, especially, an engineer has many opportunities to try
various layouts before committing the one most suitable.

There will always be a conflict between drafters and engineers, especially
those structural-engineer-wished-to-be drafters....I have seen many of them
in my career.

How do you feel about the Drafting Techniques displace by the CAD drafters
in your office?
How do you feel about the final drafted plans or the number of times you end
up red-marking drafting mistakes?
As for myself, My department have room for improvement. Most importantly,
What is the best way to try make the 
drafters understand the importance of good drafting techniques or learn such
trade?  I always appreciated a senior drafter, now more than ever.

Thank for your comments.
