Hand drafting is the most basic type of drafting, and is the first step to understanding CADD. In hand drafting you learn about lettering standards, linetypes, lineweights, orthographic projection, multiview drawings, drafting tools, drawing layouts, dimentioning, and scaling.
Technical drafting is drawing objects such as an engine part, a cog for a clock, or just a simple screw. This style includes manual drafting, basic AutoCADD, and then AutoCADD proficiencies. Such as text, layers, dimentions, and plotting (printing).
