Old is Gold
We appreciate discovering fascinating information from our past, especially when they are accompanied by antique pictures. This time, we’d want to show you how an important career – the drafting technician – appeared before computers took over. A drafting technician can work in a variety of fields, including architecture and manufacturing, and is in charge of engineering drafts, architectural drawings, and home designs. Simply said, no construction is ever created without them.
Some professions are killed as a result of technological improvements, but in the case of drawing technicians, it just made their desks smaller and more organized. AutoCAD was introduced in 1982, and by 1994, it was being used in up to 750 training facilities across the world. Previously, drafting needed pencils, erasers, t-squares, and a lot of time. And the images below prove it. When you look at them, you can practically hear the rustling of the paper. Architects, electrical engineers, and other drafters are mostly clicking their mouse and keyboards these days.
