Chapter 1

Preparing Drawings in CAD or BIM for Enhancement

Communicating design ideas with plans, elevations, and section drawings is second nature to architects, engineers, builders, and designers in related disciplines.

These conventions are either learned in design school or integrated through osmosis early in one’s career.
