|I Drafted This Three Bedroom Residence.|
It's important to really enjoy your job, and there is something about digital drafting that I really like.
I often use Draftsight, which is a free computer drafting tool that I am familiar with. It's easy to use, and creating lines, dimensions, and text is very easy. Sometimes I commit to digitally drafting homes or other buildings that I am familiar with, simply for the fun of using a CAD program. Today I drew up a standard home that might be found just about anywhere.
The final document is so very precise, and it's for this reason that I love drafting. There is something very attractive in the accuracy of digital drafting. I also enjoy using the computer keyboard and mouse. It might just be me, but I find the spring action of the keys satisfying, in a small way.
I'm reminded of a video which I recently watched that about working, jobs, and following your passion. The idea of the video was to bring your passion with you, and I like to think I bring something with me when I draft. Feel free to watch the video below.
Do you have a passion you would like to share? Do you like drafting as much as me? Or perhaps more than me? Let me know in the comments.
Edit Jan. 11, 2014: I drafted a two story residence, and wanted to include it here. The residence is similar to the one story residence that I drew a few weeks ago, and the image quality is as high as I could possibly manage without switching file formats from JPG to PDF.
