Another technical skill that we have been learning as part of the course is autoCAD drawing. AutoCAD allows us to create accurate to scale drawings of our designs, and the spaces they will be featured in. AutoCAD is also a useful tool when it comes to combing lighting design and set design on one sheet. It allows the design to be shown as a whole with the option of removing layers.
We begun by learning the key tools etc on the program, and then went onto drawing out a floor plan and section of the Waverley studio theatre. We added dimensions onto these drawings in a separate colour as well.
