    Well I'm slightly insulted. You need a very good imagination to do engineering drawings well. It may be technical but you need to be able to imagine how the drawing translates to the real world.

    I know AutoCAD (over 15 years), MicroStation, PDS (3D) and SmartPlant 3D.

    Most large projects are using 3D packages these days in the industrial sector. I can't comment about other sectors because I'm not in them.
    I agree, but only imagination, engineering drawing doesn't require much of intelligence/mugging up something. Don't feel insulted, even I like engineering drawing, its a good subject. & these softwares are for your vast imaginations

    The lead time isn't as much as 3 years, it's on average 18 months. Some companies have lead times as short as 6 months.
    I don't think you fully understand what I'm saying. I don't know how else to explain it.

    Since you're a student I'll forgive your ignorance however you're talking to someone who's been doing this for over 20 years. I work on multimillion/multi-billion dollar projects.

    Funny how you say I shouldn't be insulted but you went and insulted me even more. :P

    It doesn't take much intelligence or skill to do technical drawings? On top of that not much imagination? Really? So if I showed you some of the drawings I deal with you should be able to:

    1 - understand them
    2 - duplicate them
    3 - do it right
    4- ensure they work in real world situations

    If you can't do any of these then you should stop acting like you know what you're talking about. Yes AutoCAD is a great tool but if a person is using it that doesn't know anything technical then it's just a drawing program. You might as well use paint or some other drawing program.

    Haven't a clue about Antarctica's weather, I'm sunbathing on a beach :p

    Being a penguin, I've little use for tech unless it helps me catch more fish :p

    I agree, you are a lot more experienced. It takes skills for technical drawings, but just it was more simpler to me as you don't have to think much compared to other subjects which I study.

    AutoCAD can never be compared with paint

    Tech -> more advanced fishing gears -> more fish.

    But how can a penguin use tech-advanced gears? :p

    Yes, even I am confused about that, lets just say he's a smart penguin. Not only phones are getting smart, but penguins are getting smart too.

    You don't need to be a good artist to learn engineering drawing, ever used AutoCAD?
    AutoCAD isn't that widely used anymore over here. File have switched over to Solidworks...

    And that is why engineers from India struggle a bit when they end up here and are looking for internships. I know because I hire them, every year.

    Because they are Indians, struggle is the most important part of their life. As you hire Indians, I will be looking forward for a job outside India, I hope you'll hire me. 😜

    Are you from an Indian origin? You know a lot about India

    I don't just hire Indians, I hire the person most qualified to do the job.

    Depends on the industry. Most of mine has switched to SmartPlant. Otherwise it's PDMS. Solidworks isn't really used in my industry. 2D drawings are typically Microstation or AutoCAD though.

    We create everything in 3D in Solid works and then it has a feature that spits out 2D from the 3D model. Most manufacturing types now tend to use Solidworks.

    AutoCAD is a good tool but it simply isn't being used much any more as companies switch to BIM software. Autodesk makes BIM software but they appear to be concentrating on architecture over anything else.

    Yep. SmartPlant does the same thing but most clients want Microstation or AutoCAD still. Luckily we can convert it.
