SOFTWARE AutoCad, by Autodesk is used both as a drafting tool and a design program utilizing the capabilities of three dimensional modeling. Adobe, a PDF editor that interfaces with AutoCad, is used to print drawings in a digital format. Through the use of Adobe we also create digital documents such as invoices, letters and other presentations. We use Bluebeam as a “graphic markup” tool to aid in electronic communication.
