What is a draughtsperson? 

A draughtsman, also called a draughtsperson, is a man or woman who specializes in creating technical drawings. Professionals make both hand drawings and computer-aided design (CAD) blueprints for various structures. They take the ideas, sketches, and concepts from designers and turn them into detailed, accurate final plans. Most drafters specialize in creating particular diagrams or blueprints, such as designs of homes, buildings, bridges, industrial equipment, or consumer electronics. The majority work for drafting firms, manufacturing plants, and construction companies, though some skilled workers operate their own businesses.
