hello my name is kendall and i attend the art institute of pittsburgh i have an assignment due and i need to ask someone who uses autocad for work some questions if your are able to help me please email at thank you


Name, location, and profession of the person


Q1: When do they use CAD in the production process (i.e. preliminary design, design development, etc.)


Q2: What types of standardization they use.


Q3: What are the advantages or disadvantages that CAD brings to their practice?


Q4:   Can AutoCAD be used as effectively for designing as it is used for reading construction documents?  Ask the interviewee to provide logical examples to support your answer.


Q5:   Do you use Model space and Paper space?  If so what are the advantages of doing this.  If you did not use model space and paper space, what changes would have to be made to your drawings and what problems do you foresee if you have to go back and edit these?


 If the interviewee does not use model space and paper space identify why it is not used by his/her firm.


Q6:  If the interviewee used model space and paper space ask the following question:   Since every AutoCAD drawing is usually created on a scale of 1:1, won't the scale hinder you as a designer in terms of sheet layout? Why or why not? Provide logical examples to support your answer.


 If the interviewee does not use paper space, then enquire how the firm plots for the various scales on each sheet. 


Q7: Would you recommend this software over other for drafting and creating spaces?


Q8: Do you have any tips for being able to better understand the software?
