I’m glad you found my Online Manual Drafting School. My name is Tim Davis, and I’ve been a draftsman since the late 1970’s. I’m a fully trained Architectural designer and master draftsman.
Manual Drafting is not a lost art and even though I’m expert in several CAD programs, I never let myself become rusty in the discipline of the drafting board. Here, in our manual drafting school, I’ll teach you how to master the lost art of board drafting. And, instead of just teaching the techniques, I’ll lead you step by step in the creation process of each drawing.
For right now, we’ll be teaching Residential Architecture. These courses are in stages, beginning with the simple, all the way to the more complex. Machine and Industrial drafting will follow from the simple to the complex.
- Architectural Drafting Primer Course – This is your starting point. Help yourself! It’s free and will give you all the basics you’ll need to move on to the more complex courses.
- Single Story Ranch Home – Here you’ll learn to draw the more complex Floor Plan with dimensions, Exterior Elevations with notes, and Foundation Plan with dimensions and notes.
- Two Story Home – This includes the even more complex Floor Plan with electrical and dimensions, Exterior Elevations with notes, Roof Plan, Sectional Detail with notes, and a Basement Plan with electrical and dimensions.
