    I'm an Architectural Technologist, yeah your right... name for Architect Assistant. I deal with drawing all day and completing a house plan in 3-Dimension is uncommon except for rendering purpose. Architect, Engineers, contractors and people from all other design oriented jobs utilize paraline drawings to discuss design.
