Technical Illustrators Resume Template

With CAD/CAM stations, the technical illustrator foregoes manual dexterity in drawing complex machines by hand in favor of using automated drawing systems on a workstation.  Technical illustrators use computer aided techniques to draw parts and cut-out sections of machines as well as schematic diagrams for novice technical staff to better understand how things work. They often get trained in specific industries to draw enlarged views and sections of machinery parts to illustrate operating, reference and customer user manuals. A resume as a technical illustrator should include a portfolio of works done.
