A computer aided design, or CAD, designer's responsibilities revolve around taking blueprints and designs from engineers, and reformatting and representing them in a digital form. Rough product designs, building schematics, or additional product add-ons or modifications are examples of designs and documents that CAD designers are asked to reproduce on computers. In addition to recreating these designs, CAD designers also look over designs to ensure their creator has adhered to safety, quality and efficiency guidelines and other specifications.
