CAD Technician Job Description

A CAD technician uses computer-aided design software to make technical drawings.

They generally create two-dimensional drawings, with curved edges, rather than three-dimensional models.

CAD technicians draw plans, blueprints, and schematics for construction sites and mechanical equipment.

A CAD technician prepares technical drawings that engineers and other technicians can interpret.

CAD technicians use computer-aided design programs to create an image, which may be displayed in three-dimensional space.

CAD technicians analyze the plans created by engineers, and then create technical drawings using the computer programs.

They usually work in engineering offices, but may work in an industrial setting.
