Do the math…the average CAD draftsman earns a minimum of $30/hour, an Engineer over $100/hour. If the average time to prepare one detail is 30 minutes of an Engineers time and 60 minutes of a draftsman’s time this works out to roughly $65 to develop just one detail. Multiply this by 868 details in our folders and our current Library is valued at over $56,000. Save time and save money, it’s as simple as that.
