CAD Conversion Puts New Life in Old Drawings
Engineering documentation -- that pile of paper drawings that we love to hate. We'd really like to clean out our files, but we're equally afraid we might need something that's there. Our younger engineering brothers and sisters, who cut their milk teeth on digital toys, think we're an anachronism.
"Let them laugh," we say. "The day will come when they'll need one of those drawings." (My wife says the same thing about all the shoes in her closet (but that's another story.)
So, am I clinging to a dusty memory? Or is there some validity to my way of thinking? Can we really put new life into our old drawings?
