Description: Over the last two decades, many advancements have occurred in the production of shop drawings due to advancements in computer technology. The developments in computer-aided drafting and building informational modeling (BIM) have impacted how shop drawings in structural steel, reinforcing steel and other trades are produced. Computer-based 3D modeling has impacted constructability issues and improved communication among the major players in the overall construction process. This paper highlights currently-used 2D and 3D computer technologies in the production of shop drawings, and emphasizes the importance of imparting requisite graphics skills in architectural, construction, and engineering students. Based on interviews conducted with a select group of fabricators, contractors, and engineers, the author concludes that shop drawings produced using 2D and 3D computer software is a positive step toward improving constructability.
