Throughout the semester we have learned the fundamentals to hand drafting. Although most of the design work we will be doing will be on computer based programs, having general drafting knowledge is essential to being a successful designer. We have focused on everything from architectural lettering to orthographic drawings to perspective drawings. We have learned how to create accurate scaled drawings of basic shapes to more complex real life objects. Although I had had a brief introduction to drafting in a class I took at C of C, this class was much more detailed and thorough and I really feel like my skills as a draftsman have definitely improved.
