The architects work on variety of tools - from most basic ones to the highly advanced technologies. Here is a list of all those tools:ComputersMost architects work extensively with computers, using them to develop design ideas or draft construction documents using computer-aided design (CAD) software. The computer systems make the work easy and enhance the comfort level for users. Word processing software is used to write specifications, proposals and other documents.Large Format Printers or PlottersArchitects typically work with large-format drawings on 24 by 36-inch or larger paper. Most architectural firms have their own large-format printers or plotters to print and copy computer-generated drawings.Digital PhotographyDigital cameras enable an architect to document existing site conditions for future reference or for use in presentation images. Photographs help the architect remember important site characteristics that will influence the design.Measuring DevicesArchitects use measuring tapes or laser measuring tools to take accurate measurements on site, ensuring that their designs are accurate and feasible. An architectural scale, a type of ruler, is used for measuring scaled construction documents, or to scale down real-world measurements to a size that will fit on paper.Sketching MaterialsEven with computer software advancements, it is often quicker and easier for an architect to carry a sketchbook to jot down important notes and brainstorm design ideas as they occur. Tracing paper is still commonly used to sketch design modifications over existing drawings.Manual Drafting ToolsCAD technology has almost completely replaced manual drafting, but some architects still prefer to draw by hand. Most architectural schools still teach manual drafting as a required skill. A drafting board, parallel rule, triangles, compass, drafting pencils and inking pens are some commonly used tools for hand drafting.
