    I used to work as a CAD technician for an engineering firm so I've experience using it. That was a few years back though, so I've probably forgotten most of what I once knew

    No its ok, can you tell me from experience like what kind of work you get mostly that requires this? Do you get jobs being a freelancer?

    The work it's required for generally is line-drawings, often that need to be drawn to a specific scale. I used to use it to draw road and rail alignments, cross-sections of road (showing the construction, different layers, etc, then plot (same as printing) those at a scale specified by the engineer I was working with.

    I don't do it freelance, but know a guy who does. He tends to use it for designing building developments, the drawings for which tend to be submitted to councils for planning permission and stuff like that.

    Sure, I'm a bit rusty with AutoCAD specifics but I'll do my best
