As a CAD technician, you could find yourself discussing a particular design with the engineering team, following your team leader’s instructions for developing a design, working from a computer model of the item, or changing detailed diagrams so they can be more easily followed. CAD technicians work with both 3D and 2D design – known respectively as solid and surface modeling. Solid modeling is the creation of a 3D display of a component or structure which engineers could use to take a ‘virtual tour’ around a proposed building or to look inside a piece of manufacturing machinery. With surface modeling, you would draw a flat representation of a design.
