How a Structural Drafter can help you in Engineering Project?

The structural drafter serves as the link between contractor and structural engineers. Modern structural draftsman perform structural drafting using sophisticated CAD tools such as AutoCAD, StruCADD, revit, RebarCAD to generate detailed drawings from design data and sketches. Structural drafters closely work with architects and civil engineers to prepare and provide necessary technical drawings. Applying local building codes and specific standards, they perform mathematical calculations, cost estimates and structural analysis prior to creating designs.

Today, structural drafters are referred to as skilled CAD draftsmen. They may work independently or as a member of construction team or as support for architects, structural engineers and industrial designers. They are able to work for a number of engineering verticals such as building construction, civil engineering, industrial structural design or urban and regional planning. Structural drafters are employed by public works department, architectural and construction firms, real-estate developers and engineering consulting companies among many other industries.

A structural drafter is responsible for following tasks:  
# Analyze drafts and information provided by the structural engineer
# Develop structural drawings from hand-drawn sketches and design data
# Use computer-aided design (CAD) and drafting tools for analysis
# Assist in Construction documents and provide drawing sets
# Check design drawings to conform to specifications
# Modify drawings as per new specifications and standards
# Provide estimation for the costs and amount of materials required
# Make sure that safety and design specifications are followed properly
# Assist in getting approval from local authorities

Drafters are required to update their knowledge and skills on regular basis in order to keep informed with latest technological developments in rapidly changing field of structural engineering. Although structural drafters use CAD with a great deal, it is still only a computer tool. Hence, structural drafters must possess necessary drafting skills and knowledge of industrial standards in addition to CAD skills.
