How to save money when you outsource your CAD.

You outsource to save money. So it makes sense to maximize those savings wherever you can.

For example, don't pay CAD rates for typing. Typing is something you can likely do in house much cheaper, so it makes sense to provide your CAD guy with information already in typed format. Notes for drawings can be in a word processing file and lists like Bills of Materials can be conveyed as spreadsheet files.

Knowing what you need is another good way to save. Make sure your CAD guy is producing what you want without a lot of extras you don't need.
