Drafting is a graphic language that is used to communicate ideas and plans from the creative design stage through production. Computer drafting and design is one way to produce drawings in design and drafting fields.

Many industries use drafters to translate the ideas, sketches and specifications of an engineer, architect or designer into working plans. These plans may detail how to make products, engineer projects or create structures.
