  1. About drawing vs. computers, I’d like to know where do people get the notion that any CAD program is “potentially more powerful” than drawing by hand. CAD is good for synchronising the very different layers a project has, good for synchronising the work of different people and good for managing big projects, so to some degree it’s necessary, but it doesn’t let you draw worth beans. It’s other big selling point, precision, is a bit silly because detailing is always drawn at big scales.

    As for 3D is useless other than as a marketing tool, which I guess is fine. But as a project tool it doesn’t compare to models. And whoever needs CATIA or Rhino to make blobs could use a course in basic geometry.
