Traits of a Good CAD User
Trait 1: They CARE!
Good CAD Users care about the work they do. They care about what the CAD Standard says. They care about how others will be able to work with their files. They care about making the company look good by creating good files.
Trait 2: They follow good CAD habits
Like purging and using OSNAPS. Axis Lock and Align commands are the tools of their trade. Many users fail to be conscientious about using the basic tools that make the drawings work correctly. They just draw away and don't pay attention to how they are drawing.
Trait 3: They take pride in their work
They realize that the quality of their work is a direct reflection on themselves and the firm. They step up to the plate and put in the extra effort to make things right.

March 2006 - Survey Says
We asked about your position as CAD Manager
to find out how old you were, how long you had the job, how you
expect the future to pan out.
We found that the main bulk of CAD Managers are between
35-44 years old. Release 1 of AutoCAD was demonstrated at the COMDEX
trade show in Las Vegas in November of 1982. When it debuted 55 of the
135 respondents weren't even in middle school yet.
When asked if they were hoping to move higher in the
company structure, a very positive 60% expected to hold higher level job
titles than CAD Manager.
