Role of CAD in Structural Drafting Computer Aided Designing/Drafting (CAD) is an integral part of Structural Engineering Services. This designing or drafting process is nothing but a representation of building in two dimensions. In this technically advanced age, drafting is done using computers rather than creating it manually. Initially, engineers lay out the first set of drawings which is then detailed out including all the parameters. A Structural CAD Drafting process involves one or more following functions to be carried out by structural engineers using CAD software: Drawings for foundation plan and footing Bar bending schedule for Rebar Detailing of stairs, handrails, slabs, roof truss and joints http://www.steelconstructiondetailing.com/contactus.html Drawings for prestressed components

What are the benefits of structural CAD drafting over traditional methods? 1. Data storage: In case of manual drafting, documents are filed and stored in folders. But this is not the case with CAD drafting, as the drawings can be stored easily on the computer server. This drawing information can then be accessed as and when required. This gives a benefit of environmentfriendly storage as well as reducing the risk of losing documents.

2. 3D visualization: 3D models created using AutoCAD software allows for effective visualization. Although it can also be created manually, CAD saves a lot http://www.steelconstructiondetailing.com/contactus.html of time and the results generated by it are incomparable to the manual

3. Reduced revisions: In the manual method, chances of errors are high. Compared to this, CAD generates drawings with fewer errors. Also, whenever there is a need for revision, the manual method involves erasing and creating it again. This can be simplified to a great extent using computer designs.

4. Time-saving: CAD allows for creating designs much faster than the manual drafting. This saves a lot of time which can be utilized for other important tasks. Also, modification done in one part can be penetrated to other parts of the models. This is not possible in manual methods. For example, if there is a mistake in one part of Steel Fabrication Drawings, one needs to http://www.steelconstructiondetailing.com/contactus.html erase and literally draw each line of error. The same is completed with a mouse click using CAD.

Other advantages: ●

It allows for the conversion of ordinary design drawings from jpg, pdf, png, dxf to CAD files.

Simplify the generation of drafting documents for structural engineers.

These drawings can be generated with a high level of accuracy.

Allows for the modifications to be made in the existing designs as well.

It allows estimating bill of materials (BOM) in a better way. This helps in saving extra expenses. A lot of time is saved through CAD drafting compared to old traditional methods. This increases productivity and saves resources. http://www.steelconstructiondetailing.com/contactus.html
