Manual VS Computer

Drawings and working drawings are important. But what is more relevant is the knowledge to do those drawings and to put them together. Not the knowledge or skill to use the tools to 'physically draw' those drawings. Your draughting board, pencil, set-square, T-square, technical pen, and computer with all 3d software are just that: tools. Nothing more.

I've heard my lecturers say this so many times and I agree with them totally..
Mastering all the tools are important. However, if you want to be a good architect, the MOST important tool is your HEAD... get your ideas straightened out and workable. If you're just relying on the tools to be successful... 'baik jadik draughtman je'.
I think what they said is quite logical.

So guys, what do you think?


  1. yes..totally agree with u mr. amer..nowadays everybody can produce drawing and 3d using so many software in the market..but they are less intuitive and loose..if this trend continuously happens,we are losing our creativeness and design flares...

  2. rather be 'draftsman yang baik' daripada 'baik jadi draftman ' hahahha
