Poor Drafting Practices
You have hit my HOT button. As an official old-fart, I began engineering work before CAD was even available. IMHO, no one ESPECIALLY STUDENTS, should be allowed anywhere near a CAD system until they are familiar with the smell of eraser dust from a for-real drafting board! Only after they learn how to create a good drawing should they then be allowed to try it on CAD. CAD does not a good drafter make!
Joe, I agree with you whole-heartedly. As a young engineer (only 24 years old), I started on a drafting board while taking drafting classes in high school. I learned all about lettering and drawing (actually drawing). It truley is an art form. You learn good drafting practices that way. Then, after about 1-1.5 years of that, we were allowed to matriculate (sp?) to CAD. Drafting boards should be reinstituated in any place that teaches drafting. It's such a good tool!
