Technical illustrator (m/f) mechanical and plant technology

The job

Technical illustrators in the area of mechanical and plant technology create drawings and technical documentation for mechanical engineering, usually on the computer using CAD systems. They accept contracts from designers and use the specifications in these to produce drafts and detailed design and assembly plans, e.g. for tool machines or plants for cleaning exhaust gas. Such drawings can be very complex and require specialist metal and mechanical engineering knowledge. It is often the case that individual components need to be shown in the required dimensions for the purposes of production. Then again, an entire device or a vehicle engine may need to be shown in its assembled state from various perspectives. During their work, technical illustrators always observe the relevant illustration standards and indicate dimensions for the purposes of production and assembly. They also draw up parts lists for the production and calculate dimensions and values. They manage the various illustration versions in a project and back-up the data.

The training

A technical illustrator is a recognised skilled trade. The training takes 3 ½ years, it is possible to shorten this.
