The last decade or so has seen a lateral shift from hand-rendered drafting to CAD (computer-aided design) in many architectural companies. Today, it is rare to find construction documents being hand-drawn with parallel rule and triangle; even red-lining and marking has made the move to the PC.
With the current explosion in the use of, and interest in, 3D visualization; anyone who has to make aesthetic decisions in 3D will find computer visualization very effective in communicating design ideas.
