Uses CAD equipment to support Engineers by preparing routine layouts, detail drawings, assembly drawings, sketches and diagrams. Details to include all views and dimensions necessary for manufacture. Make copies of drawings and maintains information regarding changes to database. Makes simple decisions but refers most questions/problems to Engineers or Supervisor. Solid understanding of drafting techniques and familiarity with Engineering terminology. Mechanical aptitude with ability to complete basic mathematical calculations. Familiarity of CAD/CAM equipment and relationship of CAD to CAM. High school with Associate's degree in Computer Aided Drafting and math, and/or equivalent experience and training.
The essential functions include, but are not limited to the following:
- Uses computer assisted design/drafting (SolidWorks CAD) equipment and software to develop designs.
- Create and revise production drawings (detail and assembly drawings).
- Makes final sketch of proposed drawing, checking dimension of parts, materials to be used, relation of one part to another, and relation of various parts to whole structure or project.
- Sketches rough layout of machine and computes angles, weights, surface areas, dimensions, radii, clearances, tolerances, leverages, and location of holes.
- Utilizes knowledge of various machines, engineering practices, mathematics, building materials, and other physical sciences to complete drawings.
