As more importance is being placed on Building Information Modeling (BIM) models and 3D deliverables and the lifecycle management of project data, there is still the need to present the 2D representations of the model in a clear and concise format that utilizes time-tested effective practices for drawing and drafting standards. In most cases our deliverables are still the 2D plan sets. How many of your engineers, designers, and architects utilize software design packages but have not been instructed in effective drafting practices that help to tell the story on the construction documents that are going to the contractor? In this round-table session we will discuss what organizations are doing to preserve the craft of drafting, and we'll cover how to handle moving between the 3D models to a 2D plan set deliverable.
- Discuss who uses the software tools in your company and how that may have evolved
- Discuss what your company's viewpoint is on the craft of drafting
- Discuss organizations like ADDA, ASME, and ANSI, as well as what is available to help companies set drafting guidelines
- Discuss drafting certification programs—internal or external—and if they are still valued
