: Drafters prepare the drawings used to build everything from spacecraft to bridges. Using rough sketches done by others, they produce detailed technical drawings with specific information to create a finished product. Drafters use handbooks, tables, calculators, and computers to do their work. Many specialize in architecture, electronics, or aeronautics.
