Yes it is that important! There are a number of 3D Modeling packages around and when used correctly they are very important tools in providing the detail required for a smooth running shop fabrication followed by a quick and easy site erection.
Our drafters use Tekla as it is seen as the market leader in this segment. We also use AutoCAD and Sketch Up. We manage the whole drafting process as well as the RFIs providing a smooth detailing procedure.
